Sarah Wood
Slimmer of the Year 2009 - 2nd PLACE!
Sarah says....

I feel energetic, enthusiastic and I am enjoying life to the full, although it hasn’t always been that way. At the beginning of January 2008 I felt fat, frumpy and fed-up.

My new year’s resolution was to lose a stone for my husband’s 40th birthday in June. I tried to do it on my own but failed, so I decided to join Weightcare for some help. I knew Weightcare worked as I had been before but never reached Target because every time I lost weight I got pregnant!!! I now have 4 children.

Life before reaching Target was awful. I used to take the children to the amusement parks but had to miss out on all the fun – I sat and waited for them as I would never go on any of the rides. My Mum used to comment especially when she rang me and I answered the phone. She would ask me if I was alright as I sounded out of breath, when all I’d done was come downstairs to pick up the phone. Eating the childrens’ leftovers was the usual thing for me to do and it wasn’t until I burst the zip on my nurses uniform that I noticed just how big I had become.

For my husband’s birthday I was delighted that I’d not only lost a stone but an amazing 4 stones. I felt so proud standing next to him and several people wanted to know if he had a new partner! It gave me the encouragement to continue with my new healthy lifestyle. In fact, when I reached my Target at the last class in December that was my best Christmas present ever!!

Life is so fantastic now, I can take the children out and be part of the family, I even leap-frog over my 13 year old daughter, something I would never have done before. I’ve taken up kick-boxing and I love it.

This year is full of fun. It’s my 40th birthday this year and I’m celebrating it with doing 40 sponsored events to raise money for Leukaemia Care. I have already swum 40 lengths of my local pool and sold 40 kisses in the centre of Nuneaton on Valentine’s Day. For St. George’s Day I will dress as a dragon and have 40 St. Georges hunt for me around Kingsbury Water Park! Could you imagine me doing any of this at 5½ stones heavier?! No, neither could I.

My New Year’s Resolution this year is to stay at Target and weigh the same as I did last year. I know that I have to continue going to class to ensure it will happen but I don’t mind that. Weightcare has changed my life. I am proud to say that I am not “fat and forty” but feel fabulous at 40!!!
