Read all about our member Siobhan Rees, from Rugby, and her Slimming World success, in her own words

I started my Slimming World journey on the 25th June 2018, 23 days after I gave birth to my son Harley. Before I had my son I was very over weight but I never wanted to weigh myself, or do anything about it because I wasn’t ready to face how much I weighed! 

On my first weigh in, I knew something had to change. I had never been so heavy in all my life, I went home crying that night saying to my partner I can’t believe I’ve done this to myself. I knew how unhealthy I was and how it was going to affect me keeping up with my son later on in life.

That day was the day I set out to give my family a healthy mum and fiancé.

The first few months I was battling postpartum depression, constantly losing weight and gaining it back, and then it clicked in Christmas 2018. The photos of myself I didn’t recognise myself, it wasn’t me and it wasn’t what I wanted to be anymore.

I had lost a lot of myself when I gained so much weight but, I was determined from this point on to finally get to target!

I started posting on social media my meals, my before and after’s and followed a lot of the slimming world community for motivation and inspiration! This is what kept me on track, the love and support I’ve had, has been unbelievable from my fellow members, the comraderie in group and from my consultant in Image Therapy.

Fast forward to December 2020 and I’ve achieved my target weight!!

Dropping from a size 22 to a size 10 in just over two years. I can run to the shop with my son, I can play games with him in the park, I can put on any style of clothing and not hate how I look in it.

I’m free to enjoy my life knowing a healthier way of living. I’m so lucky to have a following on my Instagram of so many people who have started there slimming world journey because of me, people who have watched my journey from the very start and saying how proud and amazed they are at my journey, I’ve had messages of women struggling with weight and my answer has always been slimming world! If it’s a group or online it doesn’t matter! It was the best decision I have made and if I can help even one person to believe in themselves to achieve their goals that will always be the best feeling I can have.

Slimming world saved my life, it gave me the best life for me and my family and I will forever be grateful for the people I’ve met along the way.
