Sam Cassidy
SLimmer of the Year 2009 - FINALIST & Winner of the Highest Weight Loss Award!
Sam says……

From the age of about 4 I started to become a chubby child. Throughout school I had to put up with the name calling and bullying that goes with being a bigger girl. All of my friends were thinner than me, so I have always felt uncomfortable and “different” around them; especially changing for PE, it was so embarrassing.

Around the age of 14 I can remember being on holiday and being so uncomfortable with the heat I didn’t know what to do with myself. Even things like going to the fair became embarrassing, one time I had to get off a ride because they couldn’t get the bar down across my legs!

Then there was the school Prom – all of us were excited about dressing up, having our hair and make-up done and wearing that drop-dead gorgeous dress. I really struggled to find something but nothing looked good, I eventually got a dress from a club book – it was nice but not what I had imagined.

The turning point for me was going to college to become a beauty therapist – firstly trying on the uniform really highlighted how big I had become. Then it struck me as ironic that I wanted to make people look lovely and I looked this awful.

My Aunty went to Weightcare and was losing loads of weight and I have known Weightcare Consultant Lynda for ever, so it seemed the obvious place to go. I was 16 and wanted to act my age – having fun, boyfriends, hair, make-up and of course fashionable clothes.

I thought losing weight would be hard, but in just 3 weeks I had lost over a stone – there was no turning back now.

I have now lost almost 6 stones and feel fantastic. I have a lot more confidence, enjoy being able to buy fashionable clothes – I certainly have more energy and do a lot more that I would have done before. It’s great to get compliments and it’s amazing how many people don’t even recognise me.

I am now doing all the things an 18 year old should….shopping, going out partying and clubbing etc. I have booked a holiday abroad with my friends this summer and I know I am going to look good in that bikini!! I have my whole life ahead of me and now I am at Target I am going to live it to the full.
