When I found my local Slimming World group I was in a very dark place, in constant pain, after several back operations and so unhappy with myself. Walking through those doors really was the start of my new life. I was surrounded by a caring group of people who really wanted to help me lose weight. Within 3 months I’d lost 3 stones and felt the world was a totally different place. My whole outlook changed and I didn’t let the pain rule my life, as it had for so long. I love Slimming World and I became a Consultant because I know the pain being overweight can cause, I know that losing weight can be hard and now I have my own group of members who love helping each other achieve their dreams.
