‘I would never go out’: Woman who couldn’t fit in a ride sheds 4 stone in Slimming World

A woman who hit an all-time high weight of 20st has shed four stone in just six months.

Paula Jones, from Cardiff, has always been a bit overweight but after having children her weight gradually started to creep up.

The final straw came when she and her husband went on a family holiday to Butlins and she was too big to fit on any of the rides.

It was then that Paula, 43, decided enough was enough and she joined Slimming World.

In just six months, Paula has lost an incredible four stone and she now feels better than ever.

Speaking about her weight loss journey, Paula said: “I’ve always been a bit overweight but after having kids my weight gradually started to creep up.

“I’d tried all sorts of fad diets over the years but nothing worked in the long term.

“I’d yo-yo up and down, which was really frustrating, and my weight was having a big impact on my confidence.”

Paula continued: “When we went on holiday last year it was the final straw.

“My husband and kids wanted to go on the rides but I was too big to fit on any of them.

“I felt so embarrassed and ashamed that I couldn’t do something that should have been so simple.

“When we got home I decided enough was enough and I joined Slimming World.”

Paula has now reached her target weight of 14st and she says she’s finally found a diet that works for her.

She said: “I’ve tried lots of diets but this is the first one that’s really worked for me.

“I love the fact that I can eat all of my favourite foods and still lose weight.”

Paula is now a Slimming World consultant and she helps others to achieve their weight loss goals.

She said: “I’m so proud to be a Slimming World consultant now and I love being able to help other people achieve their weight loss dreams.”

A woman who struggled to fit in a ride at a theme park has shed four stone after joining Slimming World.

Rachael Bale, from Wrexham, had been overweight for most of her life and was always the last to be picked for team sports at school.

At her heaviest, she weighed 16st 2lbs and wore a size 20-22. She was so self-conscious about her weight that she would make excuses not to go out with friends.

But after joining Slimming World in September 2017, Rachael has lost four stone and now weighs 12st.

She has also gone from a size 20-22 to a size 12-14.

Rachael said: “Before I joined Slimming World, I was someone who would make excuses not to go out and socialise with friends because I didn’t like the way I looked.

“If someone suggested going for a walk or to the park, I would say no because I didn’t want to be seen in public. I would make up excuses not to go out and if I did go out, I would try and hide away so no one would see me.

“I was always the last to be picked for team sports at school because I was the biggest, which made me feel really down about myself.

“I had tried lots of different diets over the years, but I would always give up because I found them too hard to stick to.

“When I saw an advert for Slimming World, I decided to give it a go. I’m so glad I did because it’s completely changed my life.

“I can’t believe how much weight I’ve lost and how much better I feel about myself. It’s made such a massive difference to my life.”

Rachael is now planning to enter a Slimming World-sponsored skydive to raise money for the charity Diabetes UK.

She said: “I would never have dreamed of doing something like this before I joined Slimming World, but now I feel like anything is possible.

“I want to show other people that no matter how much weight you have to lose, it is possible to achieve your dreams.”
