TAMWORTH’S Slimming World Groups have seen a collective loss of 52, 157lbs during the course of 2015 – that equates to 3,726 stone! Wow!!
How have they done this, we hear you cry – by following Slimming World’s Extra Easy Food Optimising Plan, enjoying cooked breakfasts, pasta dishes, curries, jacket potatoes and chips – yes, chips! Slimming World style of course!
Food Optimising is not dieting! Its not all about restricting what you eat, reducing your portion sizes, going hungry and missing out on all your favourite foods. Its about making better choices – filling up on foods which will keep you satisfied and learning how to re-create some of your favourite dishes with a few tweaks here and there to ensure they are low in fat but high on taste.
And of course, its not all about the food! Slimming World currently has 16 groups in and around Tamworth. Group is far more than just getting weighed! This is where the magic really happens. Imagine a room full of people, all in the same boat, all looking to lose weight, all looking for some support, motivation and inspiration. – its amazing what a group of such people can do and these people will very quickly become your friends, or your Slimming World Family when you join a warm and friendly group near you.
Over 1600 Tamworth residents have already made losing weight with Slimming World their New Years Resolution. Thinking of joining them? Don’t just take our word for it, see below… the results speak for themselves.
Julia Slowley – loss 3 stone 7 lb
“Slimming World has changed my life for the better. I don’t think of it as a “diet” -it is just healthy eating. I’m healthier, happier, fitter and I have made some amazing inspirational friends through staying to group every week and getting to know everyone. I couldn’t have done it without them and our amazing consultant.”
Debbie Collins – loss 6 stone 7lb
“As you can imagine, losing 6 ½ stone has massively changed my life. I’ve had some fantastic compliments from friends and family saying how different I look. It really helps keep you motivated when people start to notice. That and staying to group each week really helped give me the motivation to get to target earlier this year. I still come every week, even though I am at target, I enjoy catching up with everyone and it really helps keep me on track.”
Emma Norris – loss 2 stone 7lb so far
“I love slimming world! People said I was mad doing it with a young baby but I disagree. I’m enjoying my journey and it’s given me the confidence to have pictures taken with my baby boy, and those are priceless.”
Tracy Barkhouse – loss 2 stone 12lb
“Joining Slimming World is the best thing I’ve ever done. In just 7 months I reached my target weight – I’ve gone from a dress size 16-18 to a size 10. The best thing about it is it’s not a diet, not once have I felt like I’m on a diet or felt restricted in any way. It’s all about the small changes in cooking habits. I now cook 99% of the time from scratch, no jars, and the food tastes better. I love going to group each week, the support is amazing and I’ve made friends for life.”
Lisa Welch – loss 4 stone 1lb
“Slimming world has changed the way I feel about food. I have now been at target for 6 months and feel happy in myself, which I haven’t done for many years. My journey has had its ups and downs – I’ve been crowned Miss Slinky and Woman of the Year in my local group who have given me great support and I’m now enjoying running with my children and wearing clothes I only ever imagined I’d wear. I don’t hide at the back of the room or back of photos anymore and feel very proud of myself!”
