As long as I can remember I never had any qualms over my weight when I was younger, however all that changed when I started secondary school. As the pounds piled on it affected my confidence, I lost my self-esteem and it made me feel self-conscious all the time. I tried a number of different diets but I never took them seriously and still ate or more so stuffed my face with the odd junk food here and then.
So when I read about people losing so much weight whilst on Slimming World, I was abit sceptical I thought it was the same as the other diets and it wouldn’t work. I still went along to the group with my sister. It won’t be wrong to say I felt daunted, abit apprehensive if I’m honest for that very first group meeting but our consultant, Clair was so supportive and helpful throughout the whole process and pretty soon we were weighed and registered.
It has now been over six months since then and I haven’t looked back since. Losing four pounds in my first week gave me to strength to carry on and it wasn’t long that I had lost my first stone. I was so happy which in turn motivated me and made me more determined to lose weight. So right this moment, I’m so proud to tell you that I have lost over three and a half stones. 😀
Joining Simming World was the best decision I made ever, I feel more active, confident and generally more happier with myself than I was before.
If anyone is thinking about joining Slimming World, my advice is to just do it – DON’T overthink it, make that decision and it’ll change your life. Trust me! 🙂
