After being overweight for all of my adult life I finally built up the courage to join my local Slimming World group. It was the best decision I ever made, it saved my life and made my life! I made friendships that will last forever, I felt safe, inspired and included. I felt like I mattered! After losing just over 9st, I achieved my dream weight and this gave me the confidence to become a Slimming World Consultant and help others. The group is always buzzing and the members are full of support for one another. I see friendships being made every week and a huge network of support being built around each and every member. I go out of my way to ensure that everyone who walks through the door to my group has a warm welcome.
