Weight Loss Boot Camps - I'm Considering it but wanted to find out others experiences

Hi everyone

I've discovered I'm shocking at losing weight. BC (before children) I always just maintained a reasonable size. But now I need to loose around 3-4 stone in weight (yikes).

I'm getting desparate and wanted to find out if anyone had been to a weight loss boot camp - if so, did it work long term or just for the week you were there?

I'm sick of being fat. I like to be active- I prefer skiing and diving holidays to lazy holidays but my size is becoming a real problem. I just can't seem to find the answer for myself.

I've joined the local leisure centre and I'm managing to go 3 or 4 times a week to classes. I guess I should just persevere with that for a while. I just feel I need a really good kick in the arse to get myself started.

I have been to a couple of military boot camps and they worked for the week but I put the weight back on again.

Then I went to a wonderful place called NuBeginnings and it changed my life.

I have lost over 50lbs since staying there and I feel wonderful. It was expensive BUT it was definitely worth it.

If you have any questions please ask - also if you decide to book pls tell them my name as I will get a discount on a future stay and I am saving up to go back!

Best wishes,

Wow! Thanks so much for responding (I'd lost hope anyone would)
I did look at lots of these "weight loss boot camps" online. I did get the feeling that most of them were gimicky and just a general feeling that they didn't consider (or care) about long term needs of the people who were clearly desperate enough to take a step like this.

I'm just so fed up of not being comfortable in my own skin. I'm frustrated that I can't seem to maintain a continued long term change that's required for me to find myself again.

If nubeginnings offers this - surely, it's priceless.

Can I ask (feel free not to answer) how tall are you and how much do you weigh? Did it really change your eating habbits - exercise regime - general health?

I need to lose at least 3 stone (preferably 4) How long has it taken you to lose 50lbs? It's amazing that you've lost that much. Huge congrats! You must be so proud of yourself!

BOOTCAMP BEACH - Bournemouth
Another boot camp well worth considering is Bootcamp Beach in Bournemouth. It has wonderful aftercare, as well as offering a great fitness and weight loss boot camp at truly affordable prices, from only £60 a day. Have a look at the website

Whatever boot camp you decide to attend - good luck. Boot camps are a great way to kick start weight loss and fitness and put you in touch with a community of like-minded people who will motivate you and encourage you all the way to meeting your goals.

NuBeginnings Weight Loss Retreat

Sorry it has taken me so long to answer you i have been away.

I am 5ft 4 and I now weigh 13stone (I will let you do the sums)

NuBeginnings completely changed everything about me. My eating habits are totally different and I am really motivated to exercise. It still seems weird to find losing weight so easy. I battled with my weight (and myself) for over 15 years.

I know I sound a bit evangelical about NuBeginnings but it really did change my life. I recommend it with all my heart.

Their website is if you want to take a look for yourself.

Good luck!

I know this thread is ancient, but just wondered if you would still recommend nubeginnings? I'm looking into it at the moment.
