I feel amazing and being able to help others is fantastic too. Come along to meet us – we’ll be with you every step of the way to help you reach your dream weight! I first joined Slimming World in 2002 when I was in my final year at University. I noticed my weight was bothering me when looking in the clothes sales - none of the clothes available were plus sizes, they were quite the opposite! I joined in the December and by July 2003 I had lost 3 stone! I got married in 2009, having reached my target weight. I’ve been going to group ever since and even lowered by target, so I have now lost over 4 stones in total.
