I started my Slimming World journey when I was told by a cardiologist that if I don’t lose weight he wouldn’t be seeing me in 3 months time, as I’d have a major heart attack or a major stroke! I joined my local Slimming World the very next day and weighed in at 21st 11lb. I fell in love with the Food Optimising and couldn’t believe how much I was eating, and that I was never hungry. My first weigh in came and I’d lost 17.5lb!!! I was truly amazed and I knew right then that I’d found the perfect healthy eating plan for me. My weight kept coming off until I’d lost over 6st in just over 4 months - I’m now a Consultant and want to help people the way Slimming World helped me. Slimming World not only has changed my life - it’s saved my life.
