In­spired to lose weight after birth of daugh­ter

Rutherglen Reformer - - Health Matters - Dou­glas Dickie

A slim­mer who was in­spired to lose weight after the birth of her daugh­ter has re­launched a Slimming World group in Ruther­glen.

Alek­san­dra Len­non has al­ready sup­ported the Slimming World group in Cam­bus­lang Bap­tist Church, help­ing mem­bers lose a com­bined 2,000lbs.

Her sec­ond group will run in the King’s Park Ho­tel as she looks to help more peo­ple trans­form their life.

Since 2013 she has gone from a size 20 to a size 12 .

And reached the na­tional fi­nals of the con­sul­tant slim­mer of the year award ear­lier this year.

One of her mem­bers was also short­listed for Slimming World man of the year.

Alek­san­dra was in­spired to lose weight after the birth of her daugh­ter, Maya four years ago.

She said: “When I had my daugh­ter, I was still wear­ing my ma­ter­nity jeans de­spite Maya being three months old. “I thought enough was enough. “I wanted to be a healthy and fit mummy to my pre­cious daugh­ter and wanted to be the best role model I could pos­si­bly be.”

It took Alek­san­dra just 18 months to reach the tar­get weight.

And she added about her weight loss jour­ney: “I think I tried ev­ery­thing out there to lose weight but I never stuck to any­thing for very long and I was al­ways hun­gry.

“I knew straight away that Slimming World was the only way I could lose weight be­cause I was go­ing to be able to eat all the foods I en­joyed and still lose weight.

“When peo­ple asked how I man­aged to lose the weight. They would laugh when I’d tell them I was eat­ing pasta and cur­ries.

“The truth is though, it was no laugh­ing mat­ter as I re­ally was.”

Alek­san­dra is now ex­cited about shar­ing her own se­crets with more peo­ple.

“It’s great to see peo­ple change their lives with such pos­i­tive re­sults and I look forward to ev­ery class, ready to cel­e­brate ev­ery­one’s spec­tac­u­lar jour­ney,” she added.

“The friendly help and in­spi­ra­tion pro­vided dur­ing the ‘im­age ther­apy’ el­e­ment of the group is hugely up­lift­ing and in­fec­tious and is one of the key in­gre­di­ents in help­ing to lose weight and stay fo­cused.”

Alek­san­dra’s new group will be held at The Kings Park Ho­tel, Mill Street, Ev­ery Mon­day at 9.30am and 11.30am.
