Lynn Knox, a mum of three from Lisburn is almost three stone lighter and well on the way to embarking on a new career as a Slimming World consultant at St Patricks Pastoral Centre, Chapel Hill, later this month.
Lynn joined Slimming World in May last year, after seeing her niece who had lost over three stone, at a hen night.
Now Lynn plans to share her knowledge as a consultant and start a group on April 28.
She says, “I really want to help others achieve what I have achieved,
“My weight loss has made such a difference to my life, I love to shop with my girls and feel so much more confident when choosing clothes for myself rather than trying to hide under something or make myself invisible I go straight for the bright colours and bling.”
She went onto say, “As a mum of three teenage girls, shopping is high on the agenda.
“I have always been good with matching and styling other people but never felt good in clothes myself because of my weight. I never bothered much with myself and always chose lovely outfits for my daughters, mum and friends.”
She soon realised that the only thing that was holding her back from joining Slimming World before, was herself. After seeing her niece she joined the Largymore group
“I felt really comfortable straight away and was delighted to find that I was going to be able to enjoy all our family favourites and still lose weight,” said Lynn. “I learnt how to shop and use more healthy ingredients for my favourite family meals. As a family we eat large healthy meals, some of our favourite dishes are chilli, southern style chicken, lasagne, stew and sticky chicken with Slimming World chips, rice, potatoes or wedges.
“I really love being part of a group,” she said, “I have been helped and supported all the way through my weight loss journey. There were weeks that I didn’t lose weight or gained weight and I really needed my friends at my Slimming World group to keep me going. Them and my lovely consultant Sharon encouraged me all the way. No matter how I was feeling I attended group every week and was reminded of how far I had come and all those smaller weight loses added to the bigger ones kept me on the road to my goal.”
