Tracy Lewis
Weightcare Slimmer of the Year 2014 Finalist
I have been a member of Glynis’s Nuneaton group, on and off, for 20 years. This has been a long journey and I have reached the time of life where I am not prepared to return to the yo-yo dieting of the past. The oldest Weightcare book I have is from 1994 when I reached Target for the first time in September 1995.

Over the years I have started classes and dropped out after a few visits because I wasn’t ready to face the problem and take control. At the same time I couldn’t admit to my family that I had failed again, so I would pretend to go to class but just drive around or sit in the car. I would tell white lies about my weight loss, but knew that I couldn’t keep up the charade for long and so the vicious circle would continue.

My latest and final weight loss began about 2 years ago, when I reached my heaviest weight ever. I had been in denial for too long and avoided the scales – it was easier not to know than take the difficult decision to do something about it. There was no specific trigger which made me decide to act, it was an accumulation of a few things. Apart from looking awful in my clothes and a loss of confidence I was suffering from a regular cough as a result of acid reflux, my joints were aching at night and I found it difficult to sleep comfortably. I was snoring too!

I finally came clean and admitted to my family – and myself – how bad it was. From that day on it became so much easier because there were no secrets. Their support has been my biggest help to Target.

This summer I went on a cruise and for the first time in too many years I sat by the pool in a swimsuit with confidence. Dressing for dinner was a pleasure in my size 12 outfits!

I will continue to attend class every week as I see this as a vital way to maintain my weight. My weight loss has set me free. I would recommend it to anyone. Don’t put it off. Deal with it now and get on with your life.
