When I joined Slimming World as a member in January 2017, it was like being welcomed into one great big family. Iʼd been petrified about walking into a room full of strangers and I was so embarrassed at how overweight I was. I hadnʼt told anyone I was going in case they thought it was just something Iʼd give up in a week or two. I neednʼt have worried, though. I was greeted with open arms – and I was chuffed not to be the only man there! Since then, Slimming World has given me a new-found confidence, a slimmer body and so much energy. On top of that, itʼs given me this amazing opportunity to help others achieve their weight loss dreams in our warm and friendly Didcot groups, where I hope to meet you soon.
