Burnham-On-Sea lady sheds over five stone at town slimming group

A Burnham-On-Sea woman has lost over five stone in weight by taking part in Slimming World sessions in the town.

Louise joined the weekly Thursday sessions of Slimming World, held at Burnham Infant School, in January 2015 and achieved her target in 75 weeks after losing five stone and 11lb.

She explains: "I decided to join Slimming World in January 2015 - there were many Christmas photos that made me feel very upset about the way I looked."

"I'd always been over-weight and never saw it as being a problem. I've been in a relationship for 10 years and I guess I was enjoying life and was OK with the way I was. However, I always used to dream of the day of being thin."

"I joined Slimming World with a friend and was surprised how quick I lost weight. I could eat unlimited amounts of foods without feeling hungry and still enjoy life and still have a great weight loss on the scales."

"I joined the gym and this also helped with inch loss. My confidence started to grow when I could see I was losing the weight. I wasn't as embarrassed at the gym anymore like I was at the beginning."

"My mum was selling my clothes for me as I slimmed out of my clothes. It was the best feeling going out buying clothes from shops and being able to find my size on the rail while shopping with my friends."

"I wouldn't have believed anyone who told me this time last year I would be wearing a size 12/14 clothes."

"I still see myself being over-weight and find it hard to accept compliments about how amazing I look, but still don't believe it myself. I have Slimming World to thank - food optimising is great and I love the group support."
