News: Mum who ‘felt embarrassed’ about weight loses four stone with Slimming World

Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…

A mum who said she was ’embarrassed of what she had become’ lost over four stone after joining up to Slimming World to shift the weight.

Sally Beasley admitted that she had piled the weight on after having three children in the space of three years.

She finally decided that enough was enough and chose to make a change.

Sally said: “Having three children in three years I had piled the weight on.

“I was feeling fat, unattractive and lacking in confidence.

“I made every excuse not to join in any social occasion, nights out had become thing of the past as I was bursting out of my clothes and I refused to buy a bigger size.

“I felt embarrassed of what I’d become.

“So one day I said to myself enough was enough, I needed to change.”

The following day a Slimming World leaflet dropped through her letter box, and from then she was determined that was what she needed to do.

Sally added: “The evening of the Slimming World meeting arrived and I was so excited but feeling very nervous also.

 

“I was met by the consultant and she made me feel very welcome and at ease.

“She talked me through food optimising and the importance of staying for image therapy. She showed me I could still enjoy my favourite meals chicken curry, burgers and chips and of course chocolate and still lose weight.

“I stepped on the scales and I was horrified, thankfully I was in the right place to deal with it.

“I sat down in the group for image therapy, the room was full of support and advice, a shoulder to lean on, a safe place where we could share our journeys ups and downs.

“I left the meeting feeling full of hope, excited and positive, maybe this time I could actually lose weight and more importantly keep it off.”

Sally followed the plan and week by week the weight slipped off and she says she now feels like a new woman after shedding the pounds.

She said: “Having lost four stone and five pounds I feel amazing. I’m so much happier and my confidence has returned.

“I have so much more energy to play with the kids. I regularly go for a bike ride and run the 5k park run.

 

“I love clothes shopping and socialising again.

“Walking through those Slimming World doors and staying for image therapy was the best decision I have made, it’s completely changed the way I look at food.

“I now completely control what I eat and food no longer controls me.

“I am so excited to now be a Slimming World consultant and be in a fantastic position to be re-launching my very own group.”

Sally’s group will be at Boultham Park Methodist Church, Skellingthorpe Road in Lincoln.

The group will be relaunched on Monday, May 27 with groups at 5pm and 7pm.
