Lucy Kendrick - TOP 10 SLIMMER 2008
Lucy Has Gone From Frumpy Mum To Glam Mum
Lucy says….

I was 14 and a half stones and feeling miserable. I had just had my daughter and I was convinced that although I had ‘pigged out’ throughout my pregnancy I would be fine as soon as I had given birth. No such luck!! I had never been so big in my life and I hated every minute of it. I had to continue wearing my maternity clothes for months as nothing fitted me and all the clothes in the shops in my size were horrible. I was a young Mum and wanted to look good, not like my Gran!

I had to get some new clothes, I couldn’t continue to wear my maternity tops and trousers as I still looked pregnant and it was getting me down. I decided to go shopping with my sister for a pair of jeans. I was feeling brave. BIG mistake. I stood in the changing rooms pulled on a size 18 up to my knees. They wouldn’t go any further, my thighs were so huge. I took them straight back off and looked in the mirror in disgust. This was the worst I had ever felt. A couple of days earlier I had been to the doctors and watched in horror as she wrote the word OBESE on my notes. I felt sick. I went home and cried and decided that something had to be done.

I knew it was time to go to Weightcare. I was shocked when I saw my weight written down on paper and knew that I had a long journey ahead of me. The excuse of just having had a baby was wearing thin. I changed my eating habits and tried my hardest to stick to low fat foods. It was hard at times and I had a couple of slip ups along the way but it has all been worth it. I am now a size 8 and I love being slim.

I love shopping now and it’s a great feeling being able to pick up a pair of jeans and not even have to try them on because I know I am a size 8 and they will fit me! I can wear designer tops from shops that I wouldn’t even have dared walk into before. I go out and feel good about myself and I don’t have to hide in a corner of the room – I am right there in the middle having fun!!!
