A weight loss club is possibly the only place where you can happily be crowned the ‘greatest loser’.
And that’s exactly the accolade that Boston woman Tracy McGrath was happy to accept at her local Slimming World group.
Tracy lost six stones and 11lb in a year at the group, based at the Peter Paine Sports Centre.
“I’m happier, healthier and lots more confident now, I would like to lose more weight and I’m confident that I can reach my target,” said Tracy – who claims the weight loss has changed her life.
Tracy joined the group, run by Helen Leak, in April 2013.
She said: “Before I lost the weight I’d pretend it didn’t bother me that I was bigger than most other people, but that was far from the truth. I found playing with my son would leave me tired and out of breath.”
Tracy followed the club’s Food Optimising eating plan and swapped takeaways for home cooked healthier options.
She was presented with the ‘crown’ and a bunch of flowers by Slimming World consultant Helen Leak and 2010’s ‘greatest loser’ Lynsay Abbott.
