Christmas prezzies might not be the only thing you’ve gained recently. Many of us girls face the unwanted gift of a few extra pounds thanks to all those Christmas treats.
Fear not, help is on hand. Slimming World’s no-hunger eating plan can help you get the body you’d love.
Student Hollie Majthenyi, 21, from Derby followed the plan and lost 1st 7lb. “Before I joined Slimming World, I blamed stress for my expanding waistline but deep down I knew I was making the wrong choices – from chocolate breakfast cereal to crisp sandwiches for supper,” she says.
The Slimming World plan transformed Hollie’s attitude to food, and in just four months she went from 11st 4lb to 9st 10lb. In fact, Slimming World is so confident its plan will work that if you haven’t lost weight in four weeks, you’ll get your money back.*
Hollie signed up after struggling to squeeze into her size-14 jeans. “I could have cried during the first weigh-in when the scales hit 11st 4lb – I was 1st heavier than I thought.”
She filled up on unlimited lean meat, fish, pasta, rice, potatoes, fruit and veg on the plan. “At the end of week one, I’d lost 4½lb, and within four months, I hit my target weight,” she says.
Slimming World gives you access to the tools you need to lose weight. You’ll get loads of support, motivation and great ideas in the weekly group meetings, and if you join in January you’ll get half-price membership.
Hollie’s weight loss has given her a new positive attitude. “I set my target, and I achieved it – and if I can do that with my weight, I can do it with anything.”
