At 24st 13lbs, I was at my most desperate and depressed. I didn't know which way to turn. I had just recovered enough from 9 months practically bed bound with a bad back and I didn't know what to do. A visit to the doctor, and some of the most evil comments you could imagine pushed me to my tipping point. I walked out in tears, ran into a nurse and begged for 10 minutes of her time. Her compassion is how I began my Slimming World journey; on referral. Years later, with many many ups and downs, I reached my target a whole 12 stone lighter and I will never go back! My group has helped me ditch toxic habits and people, and even helped me to overcome my fears. I now have a new life, a new body, a new relationship and a new career. A new me!
