I had been concerned about my weight for some time, but when I ended up so out of breath after just skipping around the living room with my niece, I knew things had to change. When I joined my local Slimming World group, I found everyone friendly, helpful and encouraging. It was brilliant to discover the vast variety of food I could enjoy, whilst living my life and still losing weight. Shortly after I reached my target weight, I took over as the Consultant at my group. I love seeing the care my members show each other, seeing the blossoming friendships and hearing the difference that their weight loss has made to them - whether that's soaring confidence, a new wardrobe, or being able to run after the grand kids.
