A Driffield slimmer who transformed her life by losing more than four stone feels like she’s given her children a new mum.
Dawn Ireland, joined Slimming World group in Driffield in April last year and lost four stone 8lb in just eight months.
Dawn, 30, said: “My children have a new mummy and they love it. A treat used to be a takeaway and sitting in front of the TV watching a dvd. Now the kids love it because we go out every weekend to a soft play area, farm, biking or just for a walk on the beach. They love it how their mummy now joins in and runs around with them. I don’t like it if they don’t ask me to join in now!
I didn’t think slimming world would change my life the way it has. I am much more healthier and happier.”
She is now so much more confident and members of her group have watched her change from the shy, nervous person that she was. They also found her to be an inspiration and crowned her Woman of the Year 2013 and are looking forward to continuing to be inspired by her when she takes over as Consultant after training as a Consultant for Slimming World, the UK’s leading slimming club. She said: “I can’t wait to help others achieve their weight loss dream too. I was really shocked to discover over 60% of adults are overweight or obese in the UK and I understand how that feels. Anybody that is thinking of joining the group, come along, bring a friend and see what it’s all about. I will be there to welcome you and can’t wait to meet you!”
Dawn’s Slimming World group will be held at The Methodist Schoolroom, Westgate every Thursday at 7.30pm. To join pop along on or call 07771 926064.
