For many years I struggled with my weight, then one day my sister said she getting married and wanted me to be a bridesmaid. The thought of the photos filled me with dread. Many of my friends had been successful with Slimming World. My first night, I was so nervous and embarrassed. But look at me now, four stone lighter and a new-found confidence. Food Optimising completely changed the way I cooked and enjoyed food and I never went hungry. My favourite Food Optimising meals are tasty curries or a lovely roast dinner. The wedding was fabulous and the photos were a joy. My group at Walton on Thames is full of friendly faces, laughter and great weight losses. Some of my members have appeared in the Slimming World magazine.
