I’ve been overweight since I was young,
but after the birth of my daughter Summer, now two, I decided to get healthy. I weighed more than 23st at the time, and soon found that going it alone was hard. I managed to lose just under 3st, but without support, I knew it wouldn’t last. Then I became pregnant with my second child, Poppy, so my weight-loss journey was put on hold.
Being overweight and pregnant
was uncomfortable, and I wanted to get fit so I could set a good example to my children – I didn’t want them to grow up struggling with their weight like I had. So, after my six-week postnatal check, I wrote to my local WW Coach to ask about joining WW. That was six months ago, and since then my eyes have been opened to a whole new world. I’ve loved the advice and encouragement my WW Coach and fellow members give me, and I know that with their help, I’ll be able to get to goal and stay there.
‘I love that nothing is off limits!’
‘The variety of ZeroPoint foods means I can make a filling meal for almost no SmartPoints®!’
‘I love that I can bulk up my meals with ZeroPoint foods, to keep me feeling fuller for longer. I never go hungry!’
‘Rollovers mean I can afford a special treat now and then.’
‘With WW, I can enjoy my social life guilt-free. Before, I’d avoid eating a meal if I knew I was heading out, and save my SmartPoints for drinks. Now I can fill up on a zero SmartPoints meal beforehand – which means I’m more likely to make smarter choices while I’m out!’
‘You have to love that you can have barbecued corn on the cob for zero SmartPoints!’
‘I absolutely love the pork and fennel ragù recipe! In fact, I’ve made it twice at home since the shoot.’
