Mum launches slimming group
Inspired to lose weight after birth of daughter
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.
