Abdullah Al-Hadi is an inspiration to both teenagers and adults alike and he was kind enough to share his story with us in the interview below.

1. When did you become unhappy with your weight?
Since my childhood, I was only 13 years old at that time.

2. What made you decide to lose weight?
I felt that my shape and body did not match my age. This actually affected my self-confidence especially when I used to go shopping; it was really difficult to find clothes that fitted my body. So I finally decided to change myself and start a new journey.

3. What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
Changing the quality of the food and reducing the portion size.

4. What was most challenging about losing weight?
I didn’t face any obstacles during my journey with Lofat Juniors because I had a strong willpower and a true desire to reduce my weight.

5. Why did you choose Lofat?
People that I knew recommended Lofat Juniors due to its great taste in food and quality as well and that was a motive for me to try out their products which are placed in supermarket fridges. So when I tasted their food, I was surprised because as we all know low calorie foods are tasteless and do not have any flavor, but with Lofat it was totally different. Also, Lofat Group was the first diet company that introduced the Juniors program which is suitable for children between 6-16 years old. So I called them up and booked my first appointment.

6. How long did it take you to start to see results?
I started observing a difference after 4-5 months.

7. How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?
It took around a year.

8. How long have you maintained your weight loss and how do you do it?
I started maintain my current weight right after I joined Lofat Juniors through exercise and being committed to the meals.

9. How did Lofat help you reach your weight loss goals?
Through weekly follow-up consultations with my dietitian ‘Alaa Al Safei’. She encouraged and motivated me during the program by advising me on what to do which helped me to lose weight the healthy and safe way.

10. How would you describe your health condition before you started your weight loss journey?
I used to get tired from exercises like walking and climbing up the stairs.

11. What motivated you to make a change? What keeps you motivated?
My parents were the main influence by being supportive and also my gratitude to the Lofat staff that helped me reach my goal.

12. Do you mind if we ask how much you have lost?
Not at all, I lost 33 kilograms since I first joined which was last year.

13. How have you done it? What's your secret?
By being patient and having a strong willpower and by being motivated from my dietitian ‘Alaa’ and by exercising.

14. How is your health after losing the weight?
I feel light and fit as I don’t feel tired anymore from exercising.

15. Has your weight loss improved other areas of your life?
I gained my self-confidence and felt I can live my life according to my age and practice any activity without feeling shy or tired.

16. Did you ever think you'd be where you are today?
I never thought I would reach this weight and shape ever in my life.

17. What are your future goals?
To continue in the same path and reach my ideal weight.
