‘It’s life-chang­ing’says slim­mer Jackie

Rutherglen Reformer - - Health Matters - Dou­glas Dickie

A woman who has lost three stones since May is re­launch­ing a Slim­ming World group in Ruther­glen.

Jackie McGre­gor is a full-time carer for her nine-year-old son and can’t be­lieve how much her life has changed since los­ing weight.

She has more en­ergy and finds play­ing with her child much more fun.

She said: “I can keep up with him now.

“The health ben­e­fits have been amaz­ing too, I’m no longer on blood pres­sure med­i­ca­tion now and my body mass in­dex is com­ing down nicely.”

Jackie is a reg­u­lar gym user and says: “I have so much more con­fi­dence walk­ing through those gym doors now.

“In May, I used to find the qui­etest cor­ner to work out, now I’m show­ing off my new trim body.

With her son need­ing spe­cial at­ten­tion, Jackie didn’t feel she had the time to look af­ter her­self.

Take­away food be­came the norm lead­ing to more weight creep­ing on.

Back in May, she was a size 22 and 16 stone, but now she’s a trim size 14 and weighs 13 stone.

She adds: “I’m still able to in­dulge in all my favourite meals like spag bol, cur­ries, chow mein, cheese­burg­ers, chips and chocolate and crisps.

“They are just all made a health­ier way, fol­low­ing recipes from one of the books ‘fake­away’.

“The first time I went to a group I was very ner­vous and didn’t know what to ex­pect, but I had no need to.

“I was warmly wel­comed by the con­sul­tant who un­der­stood ex­actly how I would be feel­ing, the buzz of the group and friendi­ness of mem­bers made me know I’d ab­so­lutely done the right thing.

“I felt so mo­ti­vated and in­spired that I wanted oth­ers in my po­si­tion to feel the same.”

Her new group will start on De­cem­ber 13 at The Braes, 161 East Kil­bride Road, on Wed­nes­days at 5.30pm and 7.30pm

Jackie adds: “Come and make 2016 the year to a slim­mer, health­ier you.”
