This month’s slimming superstar is Joanne

Total Weight Loss: 4 stone

“I have struggled with my weight since having my first child who is now 10, I was a young mum at the age of 20 and had post natal depression. I had a terrible relationship with food due to the depression and was left feeling exhausted from being a new mum and started using food to make me feel better but as you can imagine that turned into a vicious circle. The more I ate the fatter I became meaning the depression got worse as I looked at myself in the mirror I felt disgusting and unattractive. It wasn’t until my husband proposed to me that I decided to lose weight and I lost 4 1/2 stone, then shortly after our wedding I was pregnant with our second child so once she was born it was like déjà-vu; sleepless nights, eating junk food, feeling disgusting and unattractive. I also got post natal depression for a second time. My downfall was that I was so exhausted I would just order a takeaway so I didn’t need to cook, or I would just pick up convenient food. I never had energy so that made it worse. Crisps are a massive vice of mine, as well as alcohol.”


“I’ve tried every weight-loss plan out there; I should have shares in weight loss! The diets never worked as always had to weigh food or buy lots of branded stuff which then ended up being very expensive. Due to being a hairdresser I’m always on the go so I didn’t have the time to make this food. I decided to give The Slimming Clinic a go after seeing a teacher down my kids school looking absolutely fabulous after losing weight and that’s when she recommended The Slimming Clinic and I have to say it is by far the easiest diet I have ever done and has really changed the way my brain sees food. The most important tip for weight loss is to stop obsessing about it, it can really feel like a full time job thinking about our weight everyday and weighing yourself; looking in the mirror and beating yourself up. Where you put your focus is where you get your results, start being excited about the journey of losing weight, not worrying that the destination is too far away.Try to be happy everyday with who you are.”
