61 year old Helen says has always had a sweet tooth. She has tried a massive array of diets but nothing worked and she became pre-diabetic in 2020.
After joining Limbo Helen lost 15kg – a full 25% of her body weight – and reversed her pre-diabetes. She's even improved her golf game. Watch her below, or scroll down to Helen's weight loss timeline.
Before Limbo – 62.5kg
Life revolves around getting a sugar hit for 61 year old Helen. It started in her childhood but had got to the point at which she didn’t feel she satisfied from a meal unless she finished off with something sweet.
Helen before her Limbo journey started
Tiredness prompts a trip to the GP and Helen is told that she is pre-diabetic. Despite this, she waits a year. A second blood test confirms the diagnosis but life is busy and she doesn't get round to doing anything about it.
The picture that prompted a change
It is not until Helen sees a picture of herself playing golf that she realises how she now looks and isn’t happy.
A diet shifts 8 pounds
Helen tries a conventional diet. She loses about eight pounds but it doesn’t feel sustainable or good.
Some bad news
Her brother in law has just passed away from a heart attack - he was a type 2 diabetic. It's another shock and warning.
Jan 2022 – Limbo begins
“I knew this was my chance and if I didn't take it, I was being stupid.”
4.7kg lost in 4 weeks
Helen has lost more than 10 pounds in a month and feels more energetic. She is quickly learning how her body reacts to foods and even noticing differences between different brands.
By giving her constant feedback based on her body's live data and guiding her decision-making, Limbo is helping Helen use stored body fat instead of keeping it.
9.8kg lost in 12 weeks
“I bought clothes at the end of March because the clothes that I had just didn't fit. They were too big. I used to wear two sizes. I was much heavier on the end than on the top. I'm totally one size now.”
Playing better golf than ever
