Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

SLIMMERS at a weight loss group in Hinck­ley have been shed­ding the pounds since it be­gan in Jan­uary 2018.

People try­ing to get in shape at the Slim­ming World group, which meets at Ashby Road Sports Club, have al­ready lost 276 stone.

Ian lost 1 stone 9lbs since join­ing in March to sup­port his wife Kather­ine in her weight loss jour­ney.

He said: “I had huge reser­va­tions but af­ter a week or so it be­came nat­u­ral and it was a good feel­ing to be sup­ported by other mem­bers.

“Look­ing at my be­fore and af­ter pic­tures it’s un­be­liev­able what a dif­fer­ence it has made to my ap­pear­ance and also my con­fi­dence.

“I love the fact that noth­ing is off lim­its. If I’m feel­ing hun­gry I just grab some free food and know I’m still on plan.”

The group is open to slimmers of any age, sex, race or gen­der.

Kara over­came her ini­tial nerves in start­ing and found the group to be warm and wel­com­ing.

She’s lost three stone 3.5lbs since Jan­uary and en­joys walk­ing and has taken part in a marathon since be­com­ing a mem­ber.

She said: “I joined be­cause I was for­ever avoid­ing pho­tos, I just didn’t want to be seen in any pho­to­graphs.

“I love that it’s so easy, I don’t ever feel like I’m di­et­ing. I can still en­joy a take­away and all my favourite treats now and then.”

The group is run by mum-ofeight Rachel Parker, who lost 10 stone us­ing the scheme.

She said: “They have all come so far since join­ing Slim­ming World.

“Their ded­i­ca­tion to their weight loss to lead health­ier life­styles is re­ally in­spir­ing, both to me and all of the other mem­bers in the group.

“They have grown in con­fi­dence, self be­lief and are such won­der­ful people.”

The Ashby Road Slim­ming World group is held ev­ery Mon­day at 5.30pm or 7.30pm at Ashby Road Sports Club.
