Alex’s Slimming World inspiration

A Dunmurry woman who gained new found confidence and a career after she lost an amazing four and a half stone in weight thanks to Slimming World has become a Consultant with the organisation.

Three years ago Alex Boyce (41), from Seymour Hill, a busy mum of two, was so desperate to lose weight that she planned a gastric bypass.

However, just weeks before the planned operation she suffered a stroke.

When her doctor refused to allow her to go ahead with the operation she discovered a Slimming World leaflet and so her journey began.

It’s been over two years since Alex joined her local Slimming World group and she has almost reached her target weight loss.

Alex’s Slimming World group will be held in Dunmurry Presbyterian Church from April 22. It runs every Tuesday at 5.30pm and 7.30pm. For further information go to or call Alex on 07972 376550.
