Slimming World gives Phil new lease of life

WHEN PHIL Somerville stepped through the doors of Supervalu into Slimming World in January 2013, she never believed that just a year later in January 2014 she would be stepping into the new year like a new person, the person she always wanted to be!

Christmas time for Phil in 2012 was a very sad time – she found herself unable to walk far without being breathless and she was tired all of the time.

Life was becoming a chore!

When Phil bought the top in the before photo it was a size 20 and devastated Phil.

That was Phil's breaking point.

'In January 2013 I decided that enough was enough, I didn't want to feel that way next Christmas,' says Phil.

So with that, Phil and her daughter Mairead joined Slimming World that very Wednesday at 7.30pm.

Phil follows the Slimming World plan and never goes hungry.

'I love cooking and now I can enjoy all my favourite meals guilt free! I love the taster nights in group and often bring a few dishes as I love trying the new recipes I learn about in group or read about in the Slimming World Magazine.'

Phil now walks everywhere without having to stop to catch her breath and has more confidence than ever.

'I gained so much confidence from the group, I love going and never think of not going even though I'm at my target of three stone weight loss, as I still get lots of tips, support and friendship from Éadaoin, the consultant and all the other members as we're all there for the same reason, to find that new us!'

If you would like to find out more about the group, call Éadaoin on 0862132497 or visit the group on Wednesdays in Supervalu, Stockwell Lane at 5.30pm or 7.30pm.
