Hi, I joined Slimming World over 18 years ago and lost an amazing 5 and a half stone. Being a vegetarian, it was always hard to find a diet to suit me and my family. Food Optimising is the only plan that has worked for me and it's changed my life dramatically. The Southgate group are a really warm and friendly bunch who just love meeting new members and making them feel welcome and at home. We have men and women of all ages and sizes who have lost anything from 7lbs to an amazing 7 stone - and many have reached their target weight which they have maintained for many years. Over the years we have even had a lady reach the Woman of the Year final with a weight loss of over 5 stone, and was featured in the local and national media.
