June Parker - TOP 10 SLIMMER 2008
June Is Healthy, Mobile & Feels Fantastic
June says….

I’ve been overweight all my life. As a child my brothers and school friends called me fatty. If photographs were ever being taken I was the one standing behind a tree with my head popping round it or I would put someone in front of me to try and hide my body. Even when I married I was a size 18/20 but as I was young my weight never bothered me enough to do anything about it.

Holidays were marred by the fact that every time I travelled by plane I always had to ask for the seatbelt extension. That was bad enough but what was worse was when the cabin crew would hold it up in the air and would ask “who needed this”? The tray on the back of the seat in front would never be able to completely unfold as there wasn’t enough room for it and my stomach, making mealtimes a nightmare.

As I got older arthritis and my weight caused me to have great difficulty in walking, and at one stage I had to use crutches. After I wrote to the surgeon at the hospital it was decided that I should have a hip replacement. However, even after a successful operation I still needed to use a walking stick to get around.

I’d tried to lose weight many times, trying several different slimming clubs but it wasn’t until I joined Weightcare in June 2006 that things changed. As I started to lose weight I became more mobile. I was so pleased with my progress because it was so much easier to get about and everyday life was so much better.

I have been at Target since last August and my life has changed completely. I no longer need a stick and on a recent holiday to Benidorm I was walking 3-4 miles a day unaided.

I have completely changed my eating habits and even when I go out for a meal I take my own salad dressing with me! I am never going to return to my old habits as I need to keep healthy and mobile at my age!

There is no way I ever want to be fat again!!!
