Suc­cess leads to a new ca­reer

Rutherglen Reformer - - Homes & Gardens -

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.
