Annette Morton
Slimmer of the Year 2010 - FINALIST
Annette says....

I first became a member of Weightcare in 1990 and lost about 3 stones but within a month of getting into my size 12 jeans I was pregnant with my son, who is now 18. After having him I didn’t really bother about losing too much weight… and then I had my daughter in 1996.

Over the following years I lost weight with various slimming groups but never had the willpower or inclination to keep it off. When my marriage broke down in 2000 it was just me and the children and so I took comfort in food. I was at my heaviest, nearly 17 stones, in late 2003, when I met Richard.

We married in May 2005 and life settled down but my weight didn’t. I lost a couple of stones over the next 3 years but I didn’t enter into it wholeheartedly.

Then in December 2008, 2 weeks before Christmas, my Mum suggested we try a slimming club again. I found Weightcare in Coalville and agreed. Weighing in at 14 stones 5lbs was not a total shock but I knew that if I hadn’t gone before Christmas I would spend the holiday just eating EVERTHING! Losing 5lbs in the first week and another 2lbs in the run up to Christmas was just the incentive I needed. When I returned after Christmas I’d lost another 3lbs.

I’m so glad I went back to Weightcare. It’s been so easy to follow the plan, to me it’s just a healthy way of eating – not dieting – and as I’ve lost the weight gradually it seems to have stayed off. Reaching my Target weight in September 2009 was something I never dreamt would happen and going from a dress size 20 to a 10 is indescribable. My daughter has never seen me this slim and thinks it’s great! Maintaining my weight has been easier than I thought – I have a treat on Wednesday night and then it’s straight back on track for the rest of the week.

I couldn’t have done it though without the support of my Consultant, Sharon, she’s been with me every step of the way and for that I’ll be eternally grateful.
