I returned to Slimming World in 2013, having previously got to my target weight some 8 years ago. I’m now 2st 1lb lighter and I’m determined to maintain my weight loss this time around. I’ve realised that continuing to go to group to stay focused, motivated and supported by my fellow group members and Consultant is key.
Before losing weight I was finding it difficult to walk long distances and on one walk I had a bad fall. In 2012, I went to the doctors and an x-ray discovered that the pain in my ankle was that of degenerate arthritis. There was nothing that they could do!
Losing weight has really helped my arthritis and aches and pains. This year my husband and I went to Cornwall we enjoyed lots of long coastal walks and admired the gorgeous views. We then visited the beautiful city of Bath and walked for 12 miles, exploring the city and surrounding areas. My husband was more tired than I was – a great achievement for me!
I love going along to my Slimming World group. If it wasn't for the support, food ideas and friendly banter then I’d probably be heading towards a wheelchair in the very near future. Thanks Slimming World for all your help!
