A big change for Christine
Toryglen woman’s five stone weight loss
A Toryglen woman who lost five stone in weight has taken on a role as a Slimming World consultant,
Christine Martin joined the King’s Park group in January last year and dropped from 15st 9lb to 10st 9lb, to get to target and win a greatest loser prize.
And she will now use her own experiences to inspire others to change their life around.
She says: “When I first joined Slimming World as a member, I never dreamed that I would end up helping other people to lose weight but now I just can’t wait to get started.
“After losing five stone, it’s 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.
“Like a lot of slimmers, I had tried to lose weight so many times before by following numerous diets but they were never sustainable because I’d always get tired of restricting what I ate.
“I thought I was destined to struggle with my weight for the rest of my life, but when I came to Slimming World it was different. 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.
“Support is really the most important thing. It all starts with feeling that you’re not alone. I couldn’t have lost five stone without the weekly help, encouragement and understanding of my own consultant and group.
“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 will be tons of support, encouragement and fun.”
Christine’s group will meet on May 3 at Toryglen Community Hall and every Wednesday after at 7.30pm.
