A slimmer who transformed her life by losing over 4 stone is using her success to help other people change achieve their weight loss dreams.

Jacqueline joined her local Slimming World group in Enfield 3 years ago and dropped from to 13stone 4.5lbs to 9stone 3lbs in 39 weeks from a size 18 to now a size 8

Now, she has trained as a consultant for Slimming World at their national training academy in Derbyshire.

Members at the group are getting ready to welcome Jacqueline as their new Consultant when she takes over the Bush Hill Park group on Thursday April 25.

She says: “Obesity is becoming such a huge issue across the UK.

“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 4stone 4lbs and completing my training, it’s a privilege that I can give my members the support they need to get to their own personal target.

“Support is really the most important thing. It all starts with feeling that you’re not alone.

“I couldn’t have lost over 4 stone without the weekly help.”

Being a mum of four young boys Jacqueline would only walk into a room filled with people when it was for one of her son’s friend's birthday parties and would usually hide behind her boys to mask her weight.

She said “I was always able to share my good days and my bad days with my slimming world consultant and group.

“Like a lot of slimmer's, I had tried to lose weight so many times before, but they were never sustainable because I would always get tired of restricting what I ate and I did not want to count calories.

“I thought I was destined to struggle with my weight for the rest of my adult life now that I had children, but when I came to Slimming World it was different.”
