I joined Slimming World in 2014 after finding myself in the humiliating position of getting stuck on a platform lift and being told by the engineer that I was too fat for the lift limit. At that time I was a size 24/26, I lost 9 stone and have maintained it it for 3 years. The plan works! The Group I first joined was inspiring, no humiliation, no judgement just support and understanding from people who faced the same struggles, wheeling into that Group alone, ashamed was the hardest thing I have ever done but it was also the best. I love Slimming World! The optimising plan has given me back my life and after seeing my success both my brother and mother are target members, I aim to inspire others in my own Group to succeed in their dreams.
