2014-01-23 10:37:25 - Three members of the Birmingham-based Yardley Slimming World Group have lost an incredible 13 stone between them, with each of them being named Woman of the Year for their respective individual group sessions.
The three, Naomi Grant, Amy Robertson and Joyce Foster, have only been members of the Yardley group for around a year each, but each has put down their success to the support of the group, with each having tried other slimming or weight loss programmes before, but not to any level of success or previously been able to stick with their diet plan.
Joyce Foster said, “I had tried others (weight loss programmes), but with limited success, and I have had much more success by following Slimming World.”
Naomi Grant, who took an incredible 28 weeks to get to her target weight of 11st 7lb, stated, “I have tried other diets that I thought would work but didn't! I've stuck with Slimming
World as it isn't a diet, diet isn't a word we use at group.” She added, “Slimming World is a lifestyle change, I have changed my relationship with food which has allowed this to be successful.”
Each of the women have also included added exercise to their plan where possible, be it walking or going to a gym, to help increase their weight loss, but each has also added how easy the Slimming World food programmes have been to follow, with healthy food choices and meal recipes all forming part of their routine.
Commenting on her own achievement, Amy Robertson, who said her reason for deciding to join Slimming World was to look good for her wedding day, said, “I feel so much better for having a healthy diet. I won’t go back!”
The Yardley Slimming World Group is managed by consultant Amy Haines, and meets on a Monday with three session times from 3.30-7.30pm.
Speaking about her three member’s fantastic achievements, Consultant Amy Haines stated, “Each of the three ladies have achieved fantastic results, and should be really proud of themselves, and the fact that each was awarded the Woman of the Year award for their respective session.” She concluded, “I would also like to add how supportive the group is to each and every member, and feel I have a fantastic group which continues to grow and achieve magnificent weight losses.”
During 2013 the Yardley Slimming World group lost an incredible 395.5 stones, or 2,511kg, which is equivalent to the weight of 2 Mazda Miata MX5 cars!
