Hi there! My name is Ilse de Graaf and here you see before & after pictures of me. The pictures on the left were taken in 2014 when I was obese and weighing almost a hundred kilos (that’s like 220 pounds).
I've seriously tried ALL the diets out there.
And all of them failed.
They were too difficult, too boring (seriously, soups or shakes all day every day, yike!), too hard to combine with my social life,…
Sometimes I would lose a few kilo’s/pounds but I would always give up, feeling like a total loser that couldn’t persevere.
Seriously, it was so depressing. And because I’d never worked on my behavior & habits, as soon as I quit the diet I would fall right back into my bad habits & thoughts that weren’t supporting me at all.
And because I didn’t have a balanced eating pattern I would stuff my face again with junk food like candy, cookies, icecream or whatever I could get my hands on. Then I would even feel more stupid with myself. And this way I got stuck in the negative spiral even deeper.
Result of that: I would binge-eat my ass of and gained all the weight back or even more.
