Slimmer Sarah has transformed her weight, her looks and her health – and is now setting out to support others locally slim and live happy.
After a lot of health issues and major surgery over the past four years Sarah had gained a lot of weight which was affecting her mental health as well as physical. Due to medications that she takes never thought it would be possible to lose weight and slowly started to lose all self-confidence and spent a lot of time saying ‘I’m happy with my weight, I just enjoy food’ the truth was she wasn’t happy. Sarah reached out to her friend who had been following the slimming world plan and asked for help.
Walking into her very first group Sarah says she was petrified and worried about judgements. However, after walking in she instantly knew she was going to get the support she desperately needed. Straight away she was made to feel welcome and part of the slimming world family. Sarah says without the on-going support from her consultant and other members she wouldn’t have got to her dream weight. Sarah has now lost 3 stone in a total of 20 weeks. She even managed to food optimise on holiday, enjoy delicious food and still maintain her weight without feeling like she was missing out.
In her first week Sarah lost 5lb. She said she remembers that feeling of excitement and WOW when she got on the scales for her first weigh in session. In the weeks following the weight was lost. Sarah says Food optimising has become part of my family’s life. No food is out of bounds. "My family really enjoy meals such as diet coke chicken, enchilada lasagne and fakeaways at the weekend. I am never hungry and eat far more then I ever used to!" Prior to slimming world Sarah said she wouldn’t have set meals and graze on biscuits and crisps throughout the day.
Since reaching target Sarah says one of the biggest differences is to her confidence, the ability to move more freely and wear the clothes she loves. "Not only have my children got their happy mummy back they now have a fun mum who is not hiding from the camera in case of awkward photos."
