'I lost THREE STONES after seeing a picture of myself as a bridesmaid - and got a new job'

Three women tell The Mirror how their participation in Slimming World has given them an exciting new start.

Sarah Cullimore: ‘Now I know I can do anything’

Sarah, 30, is a fast food restaurant customer experience leader and Slimming World Consultant based in County Carlow, Ireland.

Before I found Slimming World, I craved instant weight loss results and gave up when I didn’t get them.

When I started trying to lose weight in my early 20s, I thought limiting what I ate was the only solution. When diet after diet inevitably failed, I blamed myself for lacking willpower.

When I saw a picture of myself as a bridesmaid, my mindset changed. In the photo I was smiling, but I could see through the unfortunate person underneath. Then one Wednesday morning in January 2020, I decided enough was enough and joined my local Slimming World group.

Sarah’s transformation was incredible

From the moment I was greeted by my consultant, Jennifer, I could tell she had been in my shoes and that she genuinely cared. Members shared stories of overcoming difficult relationships with food, issues that had crushed their self-esteem, and the fear that there would never be an escape. It was a weight off my shoulders to know I wasn’t the only one going through these things.

I built healthy new habits and my weight began to decrease steadily. I dropped the mindset that my transformation happened overnight and embraced the small changes.
