Before I joined Slimming World, I'd been overweight all my adult life. I hid behind a big personality, but I'd become very insular and unhappy on the inside. I only joined to ‘go with a friendʼ, but when I heard I could eat until I was full, I was intrigued! I could still enjoy all the foods I loved, I just needed to make better choices. I lost 7lbs in the first week, 4½lbs in the second and I was completely hooked! Sixty-two weeks and 7st 8lbs later, I was at my target weight. I now wear a size 14, not a 24, and I have the best job in the world with a company that truly cares about each and every one of their members. I can’t wait to help, encourage and inspire you on your weight loss journey – all the way to your dream weight!
