Pair shed combined 11 stone scoop Outwell Slimming World awards
Two super slimmers have won prestigious titles after losing a combined 11 stone.
Sharon Craig (50) and Teresa Woollard (48) have been named Outwell Slimming World Women of the Year.
Teresa, of Outwell, pictured below,has lost four stone in just 28 weeks and attends the evening group.
Wisbech woman Sharon, who attends the morning group, has managed to shed an amazing seven-and-a-half stone in just 43 weeks.
Sharon, who down-sized from a dress size 22 to a 12, says: “When I first joined group I never dreamt that I would be in the position I am now. Losing weight has
made such a big difference to my life. My health has improved as I have reversed pre-diabetes. I have more energy, I’m happier and I feel more comfortable in my own skin.”
Sharon lost 4lbs in her first week. As the weight started to come off, she started to think about how active she was and Sharon now loves walking regularly, riding her horses and recently celebrated her 50th with an aerobatic flight with an ex red arrow pilot
Teresa joined Slimming World in February after feeling unhappy about her size.
She said: “I saw a photo and it shocked me how big I looked. I tried a number of different ways to lose weight but they usually left me feeling hungry or miserable – or both, in fact. With Slimming World it’s completely different.
“My family and friends are all amazed by how much I can eat and lose weight. I still eat all my favourite meals, like roast dinners. I just prepare and cook them differently now – and they taste so much better. I never have to miss out and I don’t have to get hung up on weighing and measuring everything I eat. I’ve picked up so many tips and healthy recipes from the other members at my Slimming World group, too.
“I know it can feel like a big step joining Slimming World because you don’t know what to expect, but, right from the first moment I walked into my group I was made to feel at ease, and the support I’ve received has been amazing.”
Jo Johnson Andow, who runs the Outwell groups, says: “I’m so proud of Sharon and Teresa. Both are fantastic ambassadors for Slimming World and what they have achieved is nothing short of incredible. They are a huge inspiration to everyone in our group and I hope the inspire other women – and men – in Outwell and surrounding areas to change their lives in the same way.”
The Outwell Slimming World group is held every Thursday at 09:30am and 5:30pm at Outwell Village Hall. To join or find out more call Jo on 07527 646062
