"Because of the talks my eating habits changed"

About: Inclusion Matters Liverpool

(as the patient),

I did not know what was expected of me and how it would turn out.

Ann made me feel at ease and it was quite enjoyable. In my talks with Ann I explained my problems were over shopping even though I knew it was comfort eating and out of control shopping.

Ann explained in the talks that it was the big picture that was affecting the way I thought. I was over shopping and eating in something to do and I had to change and put in place other things, like day out and eat out, or go to the movies.

Ann said I was putting to much thought into "don't think about it, do it". With this in mind and because of Ann I had a great day out in New Brighton.

Because of the talks my eating habits changed. I lost weight (a stone), the hospital were happy. My HB1C and blood pressure were low and my outlook on life has improved.

My bank balance looks good, I don't shop the way I do which makes a more healthy life. I cannot express how grateful I am for the change.

It sounds like you've made considerable progress in many aspects of your life since engaging with treatment with IML; well done!

Thank you so much for going to the trouble of posting your experience on Patient Opinion. I will make sure Ann knows about this post.

Keep up the good work.
