Light work of weight loss
Alison and Stevie shed a super five stones each
A Kings Park couple have a new thirst for life after losing 10 stones between them.
Alison and Stevie Graham are lighter, happier and healthier after joining their local Sliming World Group and losing five stones each.
Alison, who recently underwent a hip replacement, joined Slimming World before the operation as being overweight not only hindered her movement but added to her aches and pains.
She was using the group’s food optimising plan to prepare daily meals when husband Stevie found he was losing weight by eating the same food she prepared.
Stevie lost 2½ stones before he himself joined the group with Alison as he wanted to find for himself all about Food Optimising.
Alison said: “Making small changes to the way I cooked our meals meant I could still enjoy all of our favourite meals like pasta dishes, curries, steak and chips.
“We now enjoy spending time in the kitchen together and love sharing our new recipes with family and friends – they taste so good and people can never believe we can eat all the food we do and lose weight. As we’ve lost weight we’ve enjoyed being more active too, which means we do more together like getting out and about and we have recently joined a gym and attend whenever we can.”
Stevie added: “Every week in our group we swap recipes and if we’ve ever struggled there has always been someone ready to suggest a new idea or remind us why we shouldn’t give up.
“I don’t think we could have achieved all we have without the support of our consultant Linda and the rest of the Kings Park group.”
Linda Parrott, who runs the Kings Park Slimming World group, said: “Seeing Alison and Stevie’s weight come down week after week has been a joy. They’re a real inspiration to the rest of the group, including me.
“I hope they’ll inspire everyone in Kings Park and Rutherglen to pop along to their local Slimming World group and change their lives for the better.”
