I joined Slimming World in 2008 after putting on weight whilst undergoing treatment for breast cancer. By following Food Optimising and the Extra Easy plan I achieved my target of 9 stones 3lbs. Food Optimising is fabulous as I can eat so much and still lose weight, and with no need to count, weigh or measure any of the Free Foods. I feel so much healthier, and fitter too, after losing the weight and really love helping others in my group to lose and reach their targets too. My Members are so focussed and so many of them have reached their target weight - and they still come to group to help new Members to get to their goal - giving recipes, hints and tips and bags of support and friendship. They are AMAZING!
