Slimmer of the Year 2010 - 2nd Place
Sue says....

I was lucky in the fact that I never had a weight problem when I was younger. Then, 12 years ago, when I got married - happiness and contentment came with a 4 stone excess!

I knew I was putting on weight but turned a blind eye to it, I made out I was still happy, but I wasnít. Clothes didnít fit right, I felt unhealthy. I have always done a lot of walking as we have dogs, but to find out I was out of breath easily was a surprise as I had not felt anything like it before.

I knew my Mum and Dad were worried about me. Within my family health issues caused by being overweight were not uncommon. So the time had come to do something about it Ė I had to do this for me.

I joined Weightcare and lost 3 and a half stones, but made the BIG mistake of stopping once I felt better about myself. Before I knew it I was back to square one, all the bad things that go with being overweight were back Ė I didnít like it.

So off to Weightcare again, but with a much more positive attitude Ė I was NOT on a diet, I was on a healthy eating plan. I cut down on the carbs straight away, not using my full allowance as I just didnít feel I needed them. But I never felt deprived. One thing is for sure I am never going to stop attending the class each week.

I didnít tell anyone that I had started back but as the weight dropped off quickly it became obvious to everyone and with that came lots of support from my family.

My husband is so proud of me. I feel healthy, a lot more confident, as I am quite a shy person. I love the fact that I can clothes shop and know I look great. The dog is walked for the same amount of time, but we get a lot further these days and I am not out of breath!

We have a large family between us, I have 18 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild and I can keep up with them all!!

Thanks to Weightcare I feel so good, I have learnt a lot and know I always want to be slim.
