A MOTHER of two is feeling “much healthier and happier” after her weight loss success.

Naomi Hewett, from Upton, lost an incredible 6 stone 11lb and dropped 6 dress sizes with the help of Slimming World.

The mother joined the weight loss group in May last year following years of constant back pain and relying on medication for high blood pressure.

She said: “I have been big my whole life at the age of 15 I was wearing size 18 clothes and after having my two girls I knew I had to do something for me.

“I went to my local GP to get some support and we talked about Livewell Dorset – a scheme where I could be entitled to free 12 weeks of slimming support.

“It was so easy after a quick phone call I received my voucher and joined my local Slimming World group.”

After just one week at Slimming World, Naomi had lost an impressive 9 1/2lb, giving her the motivation she needed to keep going.

Within the first 12 weeks Naomi had lost 3 stones.

Naomi said: “With Slimming World, I found that I could lose weight and still enjoy the foods that my family and I love.

“I have gone from eating processed foods to now cooking from scratch and I love it. I have also saved money as I have reduced the amount spent on takeaways. And now enjoy frozen fruit too and this is so much cheaper.

“I also now enjoy activity too – something I never thought I would – I walk around all the time, and often park further away so I can get more steps in. I have also joined the gym and swim regularly – something I thought I’d never do.”

Slimming World consultant Penelope Lewis described Naomi as a “true inspiration”.

She added: “I’m so proud of Naomi watching her blossom every week in the group, eager to share recipes, give tips, and support her group members is awesome.

“She often finds it hard to take a compliment but is getting there now. Her girls are so proud of her and help Naomi put all her awards and certificates up on her wall of fame at home.”
