Walking into group on my first night was such a challenge but I’m so glad I did. The support and friendship was immediate and that is what makes Slimming World so special. I couldn’t have lost weight without the weekly help, encouragement and understanding of my own Consultant and group. Like a lot of slimmers, I tried to lose weight many times before. I thought I was destined to struggle with my weight for the rest of my life. Slimming World is different. The eating plan encourages you to eat tasty, filling foods and no foods are banned, so you never feel like you’re going without. We still eat family favourites like chips, burgers, chilli and curry – but prepared the Slimming World way. I am showing my family the best way to live.
