A super slimmer from Peterborough who binged on takeaways, chocolate and crisps lost five stone in just eight months.

Helen Johns, who turns 44 later this month, had struggled all her adult life with her weight.

So after being told by a surgeon that she needed to slim down to help improve her recovery from planned major surgery, she turned to her local Slimming World group in Hampton where she utilised its food optimising plan.

Helen said she found nothing but support and encouragement from her consultant and fellow members, adding: “Everyone was so welcoming and made me feel valued.

“I was amazed once I started the plan that I never felt hungry and was still able to enjoy burger and chips every week whilst still losing weight.”

Helen has now trained as a Slimming World consultant and is launching her own group at the Fletton Centre in Fletton Avenue every Tuesday at 7.30pm from May 29.

“Obesity is a big problem in the UK with around 92,500 people in Peterborough alone who are overweight,” Helen added.

“Having achieved my weight loss dreams I am privileged to have the opportunity to help my own members in reaching their target.”
