Weight Loss Clients

Thank God for Sally Symonds! Essentially Sally showed me how to lose weight WITHOUT deprivation and despair. In terms of weight loss, I have actually enjoyed (for the first time ever!!!!) losing over 10kg - WITHOUT DIETING and have only a little more to go. Also, I have NO fear about regaining the lost weight & this is a very new concept for me!!!!!!!! And best of all, at almost 48 years of age I have finally started to think about MORE IMPORTANT things than foooooooood, and can enjoy life.

Heidi, Adelaide

Sally's guidance helped me take back control of my life. Absolutely no doubt loosing those kgs gives you a sense of power over your choices and letting others know that you are sticking to them even if they disagree!! Oh YES do I ever feel strong!! Just love this feeling. I actually see this as my way of life now and know I would have no problem doing this forever. I am feeling SO healthy! And it has been easy – definitely the mindset is so switched on and just “knowing” that I am going to get to that “happy weight” and stay there is liberating!!! I have been checking out some old photos – OMG the fat and thin - I sure have been the professional dieter!! There is a definite pattern over the last 40 years. This time it is DEFINITELY forever.

Lynne, Gold Coast

I learnt more in one session with Sally than I have in the last ten years with various personal trainers. She maybe pricey, but she's worth every cent. Probably more.

Andy, Maroubra

I've always found exercise boring and never stuck to it for very long. Sally's sessions gave me a whole new perspective on how to approach it so that it's not tedious and mundane. Time flies when I exercise now - and the kilos are flying off as well. I would thoroughly recommend these sessions to any non-exercisers.

Sally's methods are unlike anything I've tried before for weight loss. They've made such a difference to how I look and more importantly how I FEEL! All of the resources are so helpful, Her advice is easy and practical and so different from the usual diet and exercise plans that never seem to work for very long or are just so hard to keep up with. Mentally, I am in a completely different space. It's not hard, I'm not hungry, I'm motivated. It's enjoyable, not a chore. This is so not a "one size fits all" deal, it actually helps you make changes that you can fit into your life. I have so much more energy and who knew, I can live without fast food! Best of all is Sally's email support. Any little question or worry I have and she's just a short delay away. I'm not alone. I don't feel that I am on a diet, I am making changes that are really going to last, which once upon a time felt impossible. I would definitely recommend this package to anyone who wants to improve their lifestyle and lose weight for good. It's so easy to dismiss a lifestyle change. Sally has shown me how to do it.

Maureen, Brookfield

Training with Sally is like a dream come true! She is easily able to maintain the balance between professionalism and personal caring. She really listens to my needs and delivers exactly what I ask for. Having gone through many training regimes over the years, I had become somewhat de-motivated and cynical about the whole process and, indeed, the cost involved. However, Sally has re-ignited, re-motivated and re-challenged me in ways I could never have previously envisaged. Moreover, Sally’s techniques have helped deliver tangible results. Sally delivered what others only promised. I wish I had known this information years ago. Thanks, Sally!

Elizabeth W, Brisbane

After YEARS of trying what feels like hundreds of different ways to lose weight, discovering Sally has been like a breath of fresh air. Sally works with you to find ways that suit your particular circumstances, resulting in a sustainable way of life, not following some program that you can only follow for some weeks or months before you decide you've had enough and end up back where you started. Sally also never gives up on you, offering encouragement and support the whole way (and the occasional kick up the behind when needed!) I highly recommend Sally and all of her books - her different approach to weight loss in one that you will not regret following.

Amanda F, Melbourne

A few of the larger girls at work had had Gastric Sleeve Surgery and I was seriously considering it before I discovered Love Your Weight Loss. At 31, I had suffered from generalised anxiety and major depression since I was 17. Then weighing in at 135 kg I had almost lost hope that I would ever learn to how to cope with my emotional eating, motivation and thinking patterns. My previous attempts with psychologists, dieticians, exercise physiologists and hypnotherapists all hadn’t worked. Surgery wasn’t an easy solution but it was the only one I could see that might work. After following Sally on social media and reading her newsletter for a while I began to see that her approach was poles apart from all the other approaches I had tried before. Finally I plucked up the courage and joined up. It was like a light-bulb going off. Someone who finally understood what it was like to be overweight and was speaking my language. 20 weeks later, I’m under 100kg for the first time since I was 18 and I couldn’t be happier.

I am really excited about the Love Your Weight Loss site. I think it is amazing. The site is so motivating and I am doing things that I never thought I would do again in my life and the weight is coming off almost effortlessly. Now I’m off to buy some swimmers.

Anne, Mermaid Waters, QLD

I was a workaholic, about to open a new business when I realized what I really wanted was to totally change my life. Not just my job, but my whole life. I wanted to be truly happy. My weight had held me back for too long. I hated looking at photos of myself or standing in front of the mirror and I wanted that to change. I wanted to feel good about myself. I joined Love Your Weight Loss with a much more than healthy dose of scepticism that this would show me anything new about how to lose weight or that I would even lose much weight or keep it off long term. Six months after finishing Love Your Weight Loss I’ve lost another 3 kg (33 kg in total) and yes I’ve totally changed my life and I do feel truly happy. I can’t believe I waited so long.

Love Your Weight Loss is so good it will make thin people wish that they were fat.

Mark, Rockdale, NSW

I really enjoyed reading Sally’s newsletters and everytime I saw her posts on social media I felt inspired but something seemed to go wrong inside my head. I couldn’t seem to take that extra step to actually do something to make a change for a healthier me. I tended to eat healthy, but I knew my downfall was lack of exercise. I had a gym membership that had been going to waste for the last 18 months – Fitness First must have been laughing big time!!! But every time I thought about cancelling the membership I’d say to myself – make yourself go … just do it … but I never seemed to be able to ‘just do it’. Eventually I cancelled the membership and joined Love Your Weight Loss instead. It was the best decision I ever made. As the weeks went on I discovered that exercise could actually be fun, that it was actually possible for me to make it a regular part of my life, that I didn’t need a gym (I can’t believe that it took me so long to realize that gyms just weren’t for me) plus lots more useful things about food, cooking and motivation. I’ve lost 4 dress sizes so far but, better than that, I actually look fit and toned and quite a bit younger (according to my work colleagues and friends). To anyone who is at the ‘will I / won’t I’ stage I’d encourage you to take the next step. It is not one that you will regret in any way.
