Award-win­ning Diane con­founds ex­pec­ta­tions

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Weigh To Go -

An Air­drie woman has burst her slim­ming tar­get – for the sec­ond time in a year.

Slim­line Diane Dunn orig­i­nally set out to lose one-and-a-half stone, but achieved her goal last March.

She then upped the ante to shed a fur­ther half-stone – and her crack­ing com­mit­ment saw her re­cently cel­e­brate a to­tal two stone weight loss.

Diane’s as­ton­ish­ing achieve­ment – which came just over a year after she signed up to her lo­cal Slim­ming World group– saw her scoop a Tar­get Award.

She said: “I lost four-and-a-half pounds dur­ing the first week of my time with Slim­ming World and de­cided to set my tar­get at a one­and-a-half stone loss.

“I man­aged to reach this level in March last year and then de­cided to go to the two stones level.

“This was my ul­ti­mate goal and I am so very happy to reach my over­all tar­get.

“It’s com­ing up on a year since I reached my first tar­get weight, which makes me a di­a­mond tar­get mem­ber at my Slim­ming World group.”

Diane still at­tends Slim­ming World ev­ery week and helps the group’s so­cial team with the run­ning of events.

She said: “I still go to group all the time be­cause I never want to go back to the way I was.

“I have also made a lot of bril­liant friends and, with­out that help, I wouldn’t have de­vel­oped the good habits I now have.

“I still en­joy eat­ing and drink­ing at restau­rants and pubs, but have made sen­si­ble changes to my choices.”

Sharon McGin­ness, Diane’s Slim­ming World con­sul­tant, added: “As well as win­ning a Tar­get Award, Diane has also se­cured her Plat­inum Body Magic Award, which she earned by in­tro­duc­ing ex­er­cise into her life.

“This is now part of her daily rou­tine and she has cre­ated new grooves that will last her a life­time.

“Diane has done amaz­ingly well and is a fab­u­lous mem­ber to have at the group ev­ery week.”
