ACHURCHTOWN woman who shed more than five stone in 11 months has been voted Woman of the Year by her slim­ming group.

Sue Simp­son joined Slim­ming World Crossens last January af­ter she re­alised that she had put on a con­sid­er­able amount of weight.

Af­ter she failed to lose weight with home di­ets, she was per­suaded by a friend to join the group.

Sue, who is very proud of her new ti­tle said: “The change from feel­ing like I’m on a diet to fol­low­ing a healthy eat­ing plan is re­ally a big life­style change.

“And it has def­i­nitely helped me be close to achiev­ing my tar­get weight and feel­ing fan­tas­tic. Look­ing back now I am so glad I bumped into my friend and went along to Slim­ming World.”

Sue ad­mit­ted that she was scep­ti­cal that Slim­ming World would work for her, but said that be­ing in a group meant she gets to hear lots of hints and tips for new meal ideas.

She added: “I was con­cerned how the group would be as I had never done any­thing like this be­fore. How­ever, as soon as I walked into group and met Liz the con­sul­tant and the other mem­bers I felt at ease.

“Then I couldn’t be­lieve how easy I found it. I don’t feel hun­gry as I can al­ways fill up on all the ‘free food’ and still en­joy my favourite meals.”

The su­per slim­mer said that she can still have her favourite treats, which meant her di­et­ing didn’t have a bad ef­fect on her so­cial life.

She said: “Of course, De­cem­ber, and all the so­cial­is­ing that in­volves, means I feel re­ally well pre­pared to cope with­out dam­ag­ing my weight loss.”

She said: “I al­ways en­joy stay­ing to the group ses­sion but par­tic­u­larly this time of year with all the great sup­port­ive and ideas mem­bers give each other.

“It helps us all sur­vive the party sea­son.

“When you do come up to a chal­leng­ing time you know there will al­ways be some­body there who un­der­stands and will have a great tip to share.”
