News: Wow! Woman transforms her life by shifting three stone with Slimming World

Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…

A woman has completely transformed herself by losing three stone after deciding she wanted to turn her life around.

Nicola Cooper from Retford had no energy, constantly felt tired and was self-conscious of how she looked before she decided to shift the pounds.

A stressful job as a lecturer also didn’t help as it meant that she was left with no time for looking after herself and her body.

But a year ago Nicola decided to take semi-retirement and made the decision to join her local Slimming World in Retford and lost a whopping three stone in a short space of time.

She said: “Like a lot of slimmer’s, I had tried to lose weight so many times before by following numerous diets but they were never sustainable because I’d always get tired of restricting what I ate.

“But when I came to Slimming World it was different.”

She admits that she did feel nervous when she walked into the group for the first time but now loves how she feels and what she can eat.

 

Nicola added: “I never felt like I was on a diet. I love that you can eat such a wide variety of proper food and that you never have to feel hungry.

“My favourite meals include spaghetti bolognese and chilli, we always have a curry on Saturday evening and love a roast chicken with all the trimmings for Sunday lunch.

“Support is really the most important thing. It all starts with a feeling that you’re not alone. I couldn’t have lost three stone without the weekly help, encouragement and understanding of my own consultant and group.”

Now Nicola is using her success to shape a new career helping other people change their lives for the better too.

She has trained as a consultant for Slimming World and will take over the St Joseph’s Church Hall group in Retford on a Saturday morning at 9am on August 31.

She said: “When I first joined Slimming World as a member, I never dreamed that I would end up helping other people to lose weight but now I just can’t wait to get started.

 

“After losing 3 stone and completing my training, it’s a privilege for me to be able to pass on the experience, insight and understanding that helped me, so that I can give my members the support they need to get to target.

“I wanted a job that was well paid, flexible and after years of working full time as a lecturer wanted to avoid a regular ‘nine-to-five’ routine, so launching my own Slimming World group was an ideal option – I feel like I’ve got a brand new career and I can’t wait for my new groups to run now!”
