After years of yo-yo dieting the 44-year-old mum of two has never felt better – after using our LASER THERAPY treatment to lose weight.
And today she shares her story with the Daily Record.
Karen, who juggles running 5 hairdressing salons with two being mum to 4-year-old Mason and 9-year old Olivia has dropped two dress sizes – and can’t believe how good she feels.
‘I’ve always been pretty active but always battled with my weight,’ says Karen who lives in Glasgow. ‘Despite exercising I felt bloated, tired all the time.
‘I think I’ve tried every diet method that was ever invented – from meal replacements to diet pills, 3-day diets, Weight Watchers – you name it. Then I discovered Anne Penman and the rest is history!
‘My aim was to feel healthy and fit – and that’s exactly how I feel now. The trigger for me was a special occasion – I had one month to fit into the dress I wanted to wear – that was my goal.
‘I’d lost weight myself before but I knew I had started to eat all the wrong things again, in my head I was all over the place. In fact if I was in the mood I’d eat everything in sight – and then some more! I felt out of control, off the rails.
‘I needed to find something to maintain my weight and get me back in control – laser therapy has done just that. Before I went to Anne I was squeezing into a very very tight 14 – in fact if I really admit it I should have been buying size 16. Now I’ve lost the weight my size 12 clothes that have been at the back of the wardrobe for years are all comfortable, I feel fantastic!’
‘The whole experience of sitting in Anne’s big leather chair and getting lasered is amazing, it’s so relaxing and once your treatment is complete you feel as though you can take on the world. For some reason it makes you feel full and you don’t want to stuff your face!’
Karen discovered us online.
‘The name sounded familiar and the minute I met Anne I realized my dad had stopped smoking with her 15 years ago – she also uses the laser for that - and he is STILL a non smoker.’
In fact Karen is such an Anne Penman convert her partner David has also been lasered for smoking cessation – and hasn’t had a cigarette for three months.
‘He was in the military for years and everyone smoked. He was trying to cut back himself but once I had discovered Anne again I encouraged him to go too. After two laser sessions he didn’t feel like another cigarette and has been smoke-free ever since. He’s put himself in social situations and out with the boys and still not been tempted so he is delighted too.
‘Basically we both wanted to get healthy for our young kids – and thanks to Anne we feel as though we are now.’
