I joined my local Slimming World group in Swindon last summer, because I wanted to be a hands-on nanny to my six-year-old grandson. I was struggling to keep up with him and I kept finding myself out of breath and in pain with my knee, which was frustrating for us both. Then, after seeing a photo of myself, I decided it was time to make a change. Having achieved my dream weight relatively easily, I decided to train as a Consultant. Iʼve been overwhelmed by the whole ethos at Slimming World – they really do put their members first. My opening night relaunching my group was thrilling, as my members had already lost over 22st and Iʼm so excited to see what we can achieve together in the future!
