Bramhall’s Sara Butler is more than just an award-winning consultant with the 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight. In fact, she’s a Happy Weight Coach.
That sounds like something everyone could use – and seems a lot more encouraging and a lot less daunting. As a 1:1 Diet Consultant, with clients all over Stockport, Sara has had to adapt what she does recently. Nonetheless, business has never been so good.
In the early days of the Covid19 Crisis and at the start of the subsequent lockdown, Sara wondered how life would change. What would the next few weeks – and even months – hold for her and her clients?
“The first couple of weeks of lockdown were a shock and a very uncertain time. And, like many people, I panicked a little. But then I made the decision not to let circumstances get in the way of my clients. They still wanted to reach their goals. They’d come too far and deserved more than for me to give in, so I set about finding new ways to support people that would work for everyone”.
The unique aspect of the 1:1 Diet is the face-to-face consultations, which gives clients the support they need to succeed and cheers their wins. To carry on delivering that service, that mentoring, Sara spends Thursdays and Fridays organizing virtual weigh-ins as well as talking with clients over the phone or via video calls. This way, she’s continued to support and encourage her clients and keep them on track. She also now delivers the 1:1 Diet’s nutritionally-balanced products direct to her slimmers’ doorsteps Mondays to Wednesdays – safely and with no contact. Yes, it’s taken a bit of getting used to, but where there’s a will, there’s a way – and Sara certainly has the will.
“I have clients in areas ranging from Romiley, Offerton and Denton in one direction, and Wilmslow, Bollington and Macclesfield in the other, plus lots closer to home in Bramhall, Davenport, Cheadle Hulme, and Poynton, so delivering has sometimes been a bit of a challenge. Let’s just say I thank my lucky stars for Google Maps every day! But it’ s also been fun, and for most of the time we’ve been blessed by glorious weather, so I’ve enjoyed being out and about in our beautiful area.”
Sara’s clients typically let go of a whole stone in weight every 4 or 5 weeks – it must be incredibly motivating to see results so soon and so consistently. Sara’s passion and expertise is about more than just helping people lose weight. It’s really not just about dieting. For Sara, it’s all about helping people be healthy, feel better – and to keep the weight off long-term. Sara aims to break the vicious circle of yo-yo dieting:
“Real and lasting change often happens from the inside out, so I help people make the positive changes in their mindset around food so that they can live at their happy-weight – for good. I also provide free on-going support for as long as people need it – even once they have reached their goal weight. That is often the difference that makes the difference.”
Sara has seen quite an up-turn in enquiries and new clients over the last few weeks. It can be easy to pile on the pounds and develop bad habits when you’re stuck at home, not getting out and about, not walking everywhere and eating out of sheer boredom.
“The messages from the government around the health risks associated with being overweight have really hit home. Interestingly, the reasons people say they want to let go of their excess weight have changed recently from things like going on holiday or to fit in nice clothes to simply I want to be healthier and I want to live longer. People are taking their health very seriously”
Sara doesn’t make empty promises. She’s been helping people in Bramhall and beyond for many years – and she knows the challenges because she’s been there. She lost her unwanted weight – and has kept it off for over ten years now. Sara and the 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan offer a range of different options to suit people’s individual requirements and lifestyles.
If you’re simply fed up with diets that just don’t work, or crash dieting and piling it back on with more besides, Bramhall’s own 1:1 Happy Weight Coach Sara will do everything she can help you make it happen. What do you have to lose? Weight, that’s what.
