Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

A SLIM­MER is hop­ing to share the se­crets of her weight loss suc­cess with res­i­dents in Poyn­ton.

Jo Se­bouai, 46, is launch­ing a slim­ming class to help other peo­ple im­prove their health and re­store their con­fi­dence.

She lost more than two and a half stone in just five months.

Now she wants to share the se­cret.

Jo said her story starts in Oc­to­ber last year when she was feel­ing de­mor­alised with her weight.

She said: “I had al­ways been into fit­ness but af­ter break­ing my an­kle in 2012 I lost her rou­tine and piled on the pounds. I was at rock bot­tom and hid my­self be­hind dark cloth­ing and my big grey Parker jacket.

“Even af­ter my an­kle healed, I was em­bar­rassed to re­turn to Zumba classes be­cause I felt I wasn’t the per­son I used to be, it was like a vi­cious cir­cle.”

A col­league at work gave Jo the in­spi­ra­tion to find her way to her lo­cal Slim­ming World group when she saw him eat­ing lots of nor­mal food and los­ing weight.

Jo was ner­vous walk­ing through the door on the first night but was re­lieved when she was greeted with a warm wel­come.

She said: “I was full of but­ter­flies but was re­as­sured straight away. I even made friends on the first night. This gave me confi- dence that I had come to the right place.

“I couldn’t be­lieve I could eat such tasty food and lose weight, I lost three pounds in my first week while still en­joy­ing a vodka and tonic and choco­late.

“There were weeks that I found dif­fi­cult and could have thrown in the towel but at group I re­ceived lots of sup­port and mo­ti­va­tion from other mem­bers and my con­sul­tant. The tips, knowl­edge, laugh­ter and ideas got me through my chal­leng­ing weeks and mo­ti­vated me to carry on los­ing weight.

“I’m lov­ing wear­ing new fit­ted clothes in bold colours, I’m no longer hid­ing away. It’s time for a new di­rec­tion and I can’t wait to get go­ing”

Jo’s new Slim­ming World group is at the Wil­low Suite, off Park Lane, ev­ery Mon­day from 7.30pm.
