i joined slimming world way back last year, starting weight 22 stone 7lb, before then i was going to the gym with my friend twice a week and managed to loose 10 lb on my own, then after a while my friend didnt want to go anymore so i was stuck i didnt want to put on the weight i lost so decided to join sw its the best decision ive ever made. ive never been able to loose weigh on my own before and keep it off. my weigh now is 20 stone 3 1/2 lb. ive got a long road ahead of me but i dont feel like its as long as it was. my energy is slowly coming back and my long term goal is to get down to 12 stone. for now im happy with the milestones im reaching, its changing my life for the better.
