5th Competition: June to September 2016
1. Janco Kruger is the winner of our 5th Lose 2 Win Competition – WOW! Well done! You are a star!
‘Up until July 2016, I haven’t been very happy with my weight. I decided to take on the program offered by the Weight Control Clinic to fix that. The goal that I had set for myself was a body transformation, and the friendliness and support of the team motivated me to achieve this goal. The combination of the meal plan and exercise routine has left me feeling satisfied, and it has increased my energy. The changes that my body has undergone during the first half of the program really excite me, and I cannot wait to see how the rest of the program will go. I cannot thank the Weight Control Clinic Team enough for their help and support during the program.‘ Janco Kruger (21 year old male, industrial designer)
- Total weight loss: 11.7 kg
- Total fat loss: 11.5 kg
2. Tanya Nolan is 2nd in our 5th Lose 2 Win Competition – Amazing!
‘When I started with this program I was very skeptical as I have tried everything and never succeeded or ever reached my goals. I am happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised by my results but apart from achieving my goal, this program has also made me realise that I am capable of so much more than I ever thought was possible. Thank you to Anri and her team for all the support and motivation, I couldn’t have done it without you.’ Tanya Nolan (20 year old female, student)
- Total weight loss: 10.1 kg
- Total fat loss: 8.3 kg
3. Amanda Potgieter is 3rd in our 5th Lose 2 Win Competition – Awesome! Well done.
‘When I first came to Dr Arien my reason for losing the weight, was to be comfortable in my body. To wear what I want and not what I have to. Clothes to fit my taste, not my figure… For my own health and self-confidence and to be in the body I was created to have and enjoy. This program helped me to reach my goal and motivated me to go further to my second goal, which I never even realised could be possible! I never felt like I was deprived of anything or that I had to make any “sacrifices”, I only needed to make healthy and smarter choices which Anri helped me with. There is NO “cheat-meal” that I can enjoy, which can make up for the joy and happiness when that old pair of small jeans fits again!! A cheat-meal can only satisfy you for a few minutes…while the feeling of losing weight, hearing the constant compliments from people around you and reaching you dream goal, lasts for days and months to come….Thank you again! It’s worth every penny so far!’ Amanda Potgieter (40 year old female, financial advisor)
- Total weight loss: 13.3 kg
- Total fat loss: 6.6 kg
4th Competition: January/February 2016 to May 2016
1. Lynette Jansen van Rensburg is the winner – AMAZING! Lynette emphasises the importance of regular exercise while following our program. She exercises and incorporates her other healthy habits on a daily basis. Lynette is another great example from all our winners and from her results it is clear to see how important exercise is as her fat loss is very close to her total weight loss.
- Total weight loss: 17.6 kg
- Total fat loss: 13.1 kg
Special congratulations to Douglas Mamba for your commitment to succeed. Douglas lost 8.7 kg in 3 months. Well done!
3rd Competition: September 2015 to December 2015
1. Lientjie Janse van Rensburg is the winner – super job! Lientjie actually lost more fat weight than her total weight loss! This is truly amazing and indicates the importance of regular exercise (where gaining some muscle weight supports both metabolism and fat loss) while following an eating plan.
- Total weight loss: 12 kg
- Total fat loss: 12.6 kg
‘Making the much needed decision to make a lifestyle change isn’t a quick fix – its a solution. To make it a continues success you need to find what works for you – for me it was the combination of exercise, a good diet and continues support that made this my solution.Listening to advice but also to your body is of utmost importance. Never underestimate the power of your mind, body & soul connection. You have to stop being your most severe critic and start becoming your own biggest cheerleader.
I am grateful that I have found the right people who have helped me along my journey and among them the team at the Weight Control Clinic should definitely have an honorary mention. Their wonderful program and the weekly visits really made me feel like I am not doing it alone and that made a huge difference for me compared to other weight loss attempts in the past. Still a bit to go before I reach my goal weight but looking forward to a healthier and lighter 2016!’
2. In second place is Noni Cilo losing a whopping 18.1 kg! Well done on this wonderful achievement!
- Total weight loss: 18.1 kg

“Being with Dr Arien has changed my life. I was at the brink of depression and diagnosed with hypertension at the age of 30, I knew I had to do something.
Having been on the Programme for 4 months now and loosing 18kg has been life changing. Simple things like being able to ride a bicycle with my boys , going on long walks and not feeling tired and actually enjoy the walk has been refreshing. My entire life has changed, I am better focused at work and I perform better, have regained myself esteem. Small things like being able to put on your socks or fold your arms right, those are my little big moments. It’s a life style change and I am happy to be part of Dr Arien’s family. Thank you “

“My journey and experience at the Weight Control Clinic with Dr van der Merwe, Nellie and Anri van der Merwe has been incredibly motivating. Since the weight loss, I feel more energetic and have more self confidence. I am proud of myself for achieving what I did. It all starts with being honest, persevering and understanding your body and how it functions so that you can take the correct measures to help restore it.

3. Third Place: Leandri Lotz
Wow! Congratulations to Leandri on losing 11.4 kg in 3 months. Amazing!
‘When I went to Dr Arien at the end of July 2014, after much inner work, I was finally ready to walk the path of health and to feel comfortable in my body. I was desperately looking for help to lose weight, because I could not function properly anymore, without getting breathless and exhausted. I do Latin American dance and I could not fully live out this passion of mine anymore, because a dance lesson was exhausting as I did not have energy to keep up the pace. It was the last straw and I made the decision to not just drive past the Healthy Living Space, but to actually make an appointment. I have lost weight many times before, but the winning recipe at the Healthy Living Space is the combination of the Weight Control Program, Nurse Nellie’s support and Anri’s PlayFunFitness exercise classes (that I am doing twice a week). My fitness level has improved so much (and my arms are half the size it was). I do not gulp for air anymore when I dance! Thank you so much Dr Arien, Anri, Nellie and Dalene! A dictionary does not have enough words to describe how grateful I am for your help and support.’
