I joined Slimming World in 2008 eager to lose the excess weight gained after a tragic family bereavement. I had never attended a slimming group before, but I had heard great things about Slimming World. I was extremely nervous but also desperate for help. Walking into my local group was the best decision I have ever made. I quickly embraced Food Optimising and loved the huge quantities of food that could be enjoyed. I lost 3st 2lbs and I felt amazing. I knew immediately I wanted to help others feel the same and trained to become a Consultant just 6 months after joining. I now run three groups and just love it! Come along to one of my friendly, supportive groups and start feeling fabulous.
