News: Woman drops eight stone and seven dress sizes with Slimming World

Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…

A woman who thought that she would never be happy in her own skin looks like a new woman after dropping eight stone with Slimming World.

Kerry Fletcher first joined the group in May 2017 as she was unhappy with her size and wanted to support her dad in losing weight too.

The 26-year-old from Kirton has now slimmed down from 20 stone 5lbs to 11 stone 12lbs and dropped from a size 26 to a 12/10.

Kerry said: “When I first joined the group I never dreamt that I would be in the position I am now. Losing weight has made such a big difference to my life.

“My health has improved, I have more energy, I’m happier and I feel more comfortable in my own skin.

“I’ve been overweight since I can remember, but when I reached adulthood I realised I was continuing to put on weight, I tried a number of different ways to lose weight but they usually left me feeling hungry or miserable.

“With Slimming World it’s completely different.

“My family and friends are all amazed by how much I can eat and lose weight. I now eat foods I never would have eaten, I try new foods all the time, I never ate pasta and now I love it.

“I just prepare and cook differently now and everything is so tasty.

“I never have to miss out and I don’t have to get hung up on weighing and measuring everything I eat.


“I’ve picked up so many tips and healthy recipes from the other members at my Slimming World group too.”

After shifting the pounds Kerry now loves going to the gym and walking with her mum, who has also lost seven stone.

Kerry has now been awarded the Kirton Slimming World group Woman of the Year 2019.

She added: “I feel like a different woman to the one who walked into Slimming World, winning Woman of the Year is a real honour because there are so many amazing women in our group.

“I remember feeling like I would never be happy in my own skin again, but I’ve realised that when people believe in you – and you believe in yourself – you can do anything you set your mind to.

“I really hope my weight loss can inspire other people to get started on their own journey and know that there’s a whole group of people waiting to support them every step of the way.

“My goal now is to stay at target for life, which I know I can do.”


Abi Carter, who runs the Kirton group, said: “I’m so proud of Kerry. She’s a fantastic ambassador for Slimming World and what she’s achieved is nothing short of incredible.

“She’s a huge inspiration to everyone in our group and I hope she inspires other women – and men – in Boston to change their lives in the same way.”

The Kirton Slimming World group is held every Monday at 5pm and 7pm at Kirton Town Hall. To join or find out more call Abi on 07538819472.
