Jennifer before and after Slimming WorldJennifer before and after Slimming World

Jennifer is a busy working mother of two young children. She was never the smallest girl growing up, but always seemed to be very confident and full of life. After having two babies she gained weight that she couldn’t lose. For over 12 years she tried numerous diets, but nothing worked. She felt lost, self conscious, depressed and a shadow of her former happy self.

Feeling depressed, she desperately needed to make a change. Through fad diets she would lose a few pounds. Then a Slimming World leaflet came through the door. Jennifer said, “It was the first time I attended a Slimming World group. The consultant was so welcoming and so were the members in the group. I didn’t know it then but that’s the day my life changed for the better. Jennifer was blown away that first night when she heard about all the amazing unlimited free foods she could enjoy and still lose weight, meals like Chicken Curry, Taco mince, Fish and Chips, Lasagne and tasty brownies. At the beginning, the weight came off very quickly and Jennifer lost one stone in just four weeks ; there were some weeks where it got a little tougher. To date Jennifer has lost over three stone and dropped 3 dress sizes. Reaching a size 12 was a massive event in Jennifer’s life as it coincided with being a bridesmaid at her best friend’s wedding. Jennifer is now starting a whole new career with Slimming World and is relaunching the Swords group in B.A.S.E, Brackenstown Road on Tuesday 18th April 5.30pm & 7.30pm.
