A super slimmer has been named as Boyle’s Slimming World ‘Woman of the Year’ 2018 thanks to her life-changing 4-stone weight loss. Marguerita from Boyle has gone from 16st 6½ lbs to 12st 3lbs in just 16 months – that’s size 20 to size 12!
She said: “In April 2016 I decided if I got fit the weight would drop off. I started aquafit because of my back and as I got stronger I started parkrun. I kept at it for a full year and had lost no weight. I needed to address my relationship with food and I joined Slimming World in May 2017.
“That first week I was amazed that I lost 7 lbs. I had eaten so much and enjoyed cooking meals from scratch with a few changes that made them Slimming World-friendly. I realised that food optimising and body magic together were going to get me the results I wanted!
“I feel like a different woman to the one who walked into Slimming World 16 months ago and winning Woman of the Year is a real honour because there are so many amazing and inspirational women in our group including our fantastic leader Tracy.
“I am proud of how far I have come. I am a good role model for my children. My goal now is to hit my target and stay there for life, which I know I can do”.
Tracy, who runs the Boyle group, was understandably proud: “She’s a fantastic ambassador for Slimming World and what she’s achieved is nothing short of incredible. She’s a huge inspiration to everyone in our group and I hope she inspires others to change their lives in the same way”.
Boyle Slimming World group meets every Thursday at 5.30 pm and 7.30 pm at The Spool Factory and Tracy also runs the Roscommon groups in Gleeson’s every Monday morning at 9.30 am and on Wednesdays at 9.30 am, 5 pm and 7 pm. To join or find out more call Tracy on 086-3891600.
