With Slimming World I Have Kym back again!

In spite of my health issues, I have lost an amazing 3 stone in only seven months to achieve my dream weight.

I’ve not looked at myself for years without hating myself, I felt disgusted at what i had become, going through the menopause and suffering with Fibromyalgia had taken its toll and I had piled on the lbs.

I had tried to lose weight before but had given up after a few weeks and slipped back into my old eating habits of sandwiches, crisps, cakes, red wine and creamy curries.

I spoke to a friend over Christmas 2022 and decided enough was enough. I suffer with anxiety and depression and was worried about joining a group. I chose Friday, January 13, 2023 - unlucky for some but not for me. I walked through the doors of my local Slimming World group at Kilgetty community centre and was welcomed with a big smile and everyone was so friendly I immediately felt comfortable.

The food I enjoy now is homemade butter bean and veg stew, making my own tomato sauce for chilli, meatballs and spag bol, salmon with puy lentils and chic curry, ideally made with veg grown in my own garden.

With having Fibromyalgia, there are days I am unable to get out of bed as the pain is just too great, it would have been so easy to have slipped back into my old ways but I used the slimming world freezer meals and food I have batch cooked to stay on track.

The benefits I feel from losing my weight are immense, my balance is better, climbing the stairs is easier even putting on my shoes is easier! My husband and I take our three dogs down to the beach for a walk and I love telling people about the weight I have lost; I don’t feel ashamed of myself anymore. When I look in the mirror or catch a glimpse of myself in a shop window I feel proud of what i have achieved.

When I started my journey with having so many health issues I felt like I had a mountain to climb but with the help of my husband and my Slimming world group I reached the summit! I achieved my target!

What a difference 2023 has made to me Slimming World has changed my life. I am Kym again!
