Success leads to a new career
A slimmer who transformed her life by losing almost three stones is using her success to shape a whole new career helping other people change their lives and achieve their weight loss dreams too.
Jemima joined her local Slimming World group in St Oswalds Church, Kings Park in September last year and shed her excess weight in less than a year to be just a few pounds away from her target weight.
Jemima has now trained as a Consultant for Slimming World and is opening her own group in Queens Park Govanhill Parish Church on Friday mornings starting next month.
She said: “I had always felt slim and healthy so it came as such a shock when I sat with my family looking at the holiday snaps. My confidence disappeared in that instant,
“Then a few weeks later I was handed a ‘ Yes You Can’ leaflet from Slimming World with pictures of real meals like spaghetti and burgers with chips. I had nothing to lose so went along to group the very next week. And I lost 3.5lbs at my very first weigh-in after filling up on all my favourite foods.
“I couldn’t believe how different Slimming World was. I never felt like I was on a diet. The eating plan encourages you to eat lots of tasty, filling foods like pasta, rice, potatoes and lean meat and fish, you are never hungry and no foods are banned so there’s no deprivation. I couldn’t believe I’d found a way to lose weight without starving myself.
“After losing 2 st 11.5 lbs and completing my training, it’s going to be such a privilege for me to be able to pass on the experience, insight and understanding that helped me, so that I can give my members the support they need to get to target.
“As someone who has lost weight myself I know the challenges people can face, which is why, along with the group, I will be there to support every one of my members all the way to their chosen target weight. Setting targets, sharing recipes and other ideas, and working together as a group to overcome challenges and celebrate success is so important to a successful journey. That’s why, at my Slimming World group, there’ll be tons of support, encouragement and fun.”
Jemima’s Slimming World group will be held at Queens Park Govanhill Parish Church every Friday at 9.30 am from 2nd September. For more information or to join Jemima’s group either pop along or call her on 07546 051 325.
