I joined Slimming World as I was unhappy with the size clothes I was having to buy. I hated what I saw in the mirror, my back ached, and I felt nearer 78 than 28. After losing 5.5lbs in my very first week I was hooked. I slowly but steadily lost weight and started to feel a million times better about myself - that's when I decided to become a Consultant and to help other people feel the same. It's not been an easy journey, there were times I'd regained weight, but almost 8 years on, I am now 4 stones 7lbs lighter and have found a love of Body Magic too. I have 2 children who eat the same meals as I do - they're learning the same healthy habits that will hopefully last forever.
