On January 28th, 2017 Rachel joined Slimming World in the Plaza Hotel Saturday Morning Group after a battle to build up the courage to join. 22 old Rachel lost 4 Stone 10.5lbs while attending Slimming World with Christine. Rachel added “I wasn’t one bit happy in my own skin I fooled myself say thing the shops sizes were small fitting when I was the one who just didn’t want to come to terms that I was should be in a size 16. Unhappy, unhealthy and in a hard spot mentally I joined with the amazing support of my best friend Amanda who I joined along side with.”

So, Rachel’s journey began with a good loss of 5lbs in the first week which still to this day is her biggest loss. Rachel commented “I was never one to lose big I went at a good pace with three maintains and a lot of re-changing my target and with one gain after Christmas in less than a year I’ve lost 4 Stone 10.5lbs. Going from a size 14/16 down to a size 6/8 has changed my life I can now keep up with my little boy who is three years old, I’m able to go into the shops and buy figure hugging clothes not the normal baggy cover myself up clothes. I’ve gained the confidence I thought I would never have again.”

Rachel will go on her first family holiday in August and she won’t just be the person behind the camera anymore. Rachel said “I want to be in lots of pictures with my little boy and my partner, unlike before I was the one taking the pictures.”

Slimming World had changed Rachel’s life in so many ways, Rachel said ” if it wasn’t for the help of consultant Christine and the amazing group members and Amanda, my partner, family and friends I don’t think I could have achieved what I have with out them”

Rachel is attending Slimming World in the Plaza Hotel Tallaght on Saturday Mornings. Classes are on at 9:00am & 11:00am every Saturday. Please Contact Christine for more information if required on 0860885142.
