I became a Consultant because I wanted other people to feel how I felt after losing weight with Slimming World. I was unhappy, overweight and on anti-depressants when I saw an advert for Slimming World that read "there are no strangers here, just friends you have yet to meet". I plucked up the courage to go on my own and never looked back. I lost 3 stones and 49 and a half inches and gained confidence and lots of friends! Since then I have become more active and have taken up jogging and last year age of 51 I completed my first ever half marathon and now have a whole new lease of life. Last year saw our amazing Golborne Slimming World group lose an incredible 801 stones and 97 of them reaching their weight loss dreams.
