I joined Slimming World in March 2016. A very big dad with a big problem I wasn't ready to face. From the minute I walked in I was welcomed and soon made new friends. My Consultant talked me through Food Optimising and showed me how easy it all was. After 18 months I had lost 8½ stone and became a more active Dad to my son. I rekindled my love of motorbikes, and returned to the Isle of Man TT in 2018 for the first time in 20 years. I now play more with my son, I am more active and can do my day to day job with ease. I used to be known as Big Al' - not anymore. I became a Consultant so I can share Slimming World and Food Optimising with as many people as possible. I can't wait to meet new friends and help you all achieve your dream weight.
