Janet Manders
Slimmer of the Year 2009 - FINALIST
Janet says……

The old saying “I wish I had done it years ago…” I have heard it so many times, but how I really wish I had. Over the years I was just getting bigger and bigger, more and more tired. I put it down to getting older, being a wife and mother of 3 sons, carer to one son who has Special needs, and a grandmother.

I didn’t realise my health was affected until I collapsed and then I was in and out of hospital for nearly three years feeling very unwell. Suddenly I was very ill and rushed to hospital. They found out I had heart failure – I was told a Pace Maker had to be fitted urgently.

That was a wake-up call to me, to think that for years I just kept plodding on. Once I was back on my feet and feeling a lot better I thought about a lot of things…a lot of “What if’s…” but now I know my heart was getting tired, tired of carrying a heavy body around, I had to do something.

I did enquire about exercise classes but I was too ill to join, although my Doctor did agree that I could try a slimming club. A friend introduced me to Sharon at Weightcare. From then on I felt very welcome, it is such a friendly class, we chat and discuss ideas - all supporting each other.

Sharon has been such an inspiration, believing in me, telling me every week “you can do it”. I’m so pleased she was right, my confidence has grown and it is great to be able to shop anywhere for fashionable clothes.

Now I have a new lease on life, enjoying going out and about and on holidays. I have even joined a local Rock ‘n’ Roll evening and I love it!

All this thanks to Sharon and Weightcare.
