‘I was living in a fat suit, now with Slimpod I’ve lost 11 stone’

I LOVE meeting Slimpodders because their success stories are so uplifting and inspiring. During the summer I was lucky enough to meet Lorraine Murphy, the day after her daughter’s wedding.

Lorraine has lost 11 stone 6 lbs (which is 157 lbs or, for anyone who does metric, 71 kilos).

She was positively glowing. And I’m sure that what she has achieved will provide hope for anyone who thinks they’ll never be able to lose weight and be in control of food.

There’s a lovely six-minute video for you to watch below in which Lorraine tells her story.

She says: “Before Slimpod I literally felt like I was living in a fat suit – and I had no idea how to get out of it. Then I came across Slimpod.

“I’ve been quite a big girl most of my life. I used to call myself a beast, actually. I had a bad sugar addiction and I would think nothing of eating three chocolate bars a day.

“That’s on top of cakes, biscuits, bread products, pastas etc.

Lorraine before: “Like a fat suit”

Today: “Got my life back”

Before: “Food in control”

“Healthy and happy”

“But I feel like a normal person around food now. I’m in control of the food rather than food being in control of me.

“Slimpod gave me my choices back. I could eat if I wanted to, if I didn’t want to eat then fine. Choosing healthy options just became natural and became part of my life.

“Slimpod has also given me my life back. I’m much more confident than I’ve ever been. I used to hate meeting people because I felt they were judging me because of my size. But now I’m the life and soul of the party, I’ll go anywhere, meet anyone.

  1. You are truly inspirational so thank you for sharing your amazing story! You should be super proud of yourself. Not only do you look great but your eyes look so bright and you look very healthy- I too feel I’m addicted to sugar but suddenly I don’t crave fizzy drinks anymore so I’m on to a good start. Having been on holidays recently I do need to start listening to my pods properly again and you’ve just inspired me to get back on track so thank you for that! Well done. You should be super proud of you!!

  15. Well done, so much of what you have said about your pre-Slimpod experience resonates with me.
    Congratulations and thank you for sharing your honest and inspirational story.

    1. Thank you Fran. I never would have been that honest pre slimpod, so I guess it has helped heal me internally as well. I wish you lots of luck on your own slimpod journey. Just never give up! Xx

  16. Pauline Carmichael

    Well done Lorraine, this is truly inspiring! Just beginning my weight loss journey with slimpod, I hope ima as successful as you. Tried so many diets over the years and just can’t face starting another one, looking for a different approach and found this.
    So fingers and everything else crossed this works!!!

    1. Hi Pauline. I also tried every diet under the sun. Slimpod is so different because its NOT A diet. It simply changes your behaviours around food. Just believe and follow the process. You will get there, just never give up xx

  17. Lorraine, well done girl. You’ve given me hope. My journey has been much like yours. I will keep you in mind as I continue to listen to the slimpod. Thank you so much for sharing your success with us.

  18. Amazing story – I have been on WW for a year now, lost 2 stone, but have plateaued and need some new motivation to carry on! Your story is so inspiring as I have been over weight all my life too and have only even been my ideal weight once! I want to get back there! I am very curious about Slimpod, so might give it a try.

  19. Absolutely brilliant true inspiration I am just starting my journey at the same size this has really given me the motivation and trust that I can finally get out of my fatsuit after 20 +years of trying

  20. Can I just take the 10 day trial with out my card details as I just want to try this I’ve not lost weight for many years

    1. I’m sorry Amanda, that’s not possible. You can cancel at any point during the 10-day trial and we won’t take any money. In addition, if you do continue after the trial, your first payment is covered by a 30-day money back guarantee. So in effect you can try it for a total of 40 days at no risk.

  21. Lorraine, you have done really well with your weight loss and you look fantastic. How long did it take you to achieve your final goal and do you continue to use slimpod?

  22. Wow, I am so pleased for you. 😊😊
    I can so relate to what you are saying and have tried many diets too with little success of keeping the weight off. I just want to say “Thank You” and making me believe change can happen.
    I just want to say how impressed I am and can see how much belief you have in yourself now. Well done. 👍

  23. non of this promo material explains anything about the system whatsoever. is it calories cutting, keto, paleo? what is this system pls?

  24. Janet Southwood

    What an inspiration! I am massively addicted to sugar and as a diabetic that’s a death sentence. You have given me hope that my sentence can be quashed! Thank you. Live well xx

  25. Hi Lorraine, firstly you look amazing! Well done!
    I think I have about the same to loose as you did, I am so tempted to try this, but scared in case it’s another ‘fad’ that isn’t going to work for me again… Need a kick up the bum please!!

  26. D Anne Edwards

    I have just listened to Lorraine’s transformation though Slimpod, she is the most inspiring lady to listen to, giving a good understanding of the practice, and thus giving inspiration to newbies like me. Like Lorraine I have lost weight with slimming clubs but eventually put it back on and more !!! So here I am with about 2.5 stone to lose , and looking forward to my journey. Lorraine you are my inspiration, Thank you x
