Slimming consultant Karen Blair knows what she’s talking about when it comes to losing weight.
She joined Slimming World in March 2012 and lost 7st.
Karen, 33, who lives on the Beanfield estate in Corby, is now launching her own Slimming World group and the first session is being held on Thursday, October 3, at the new Oakley Vale Community Centre, in Butland Road, starting at 7.30pm.
Karen, who has dropped from a dress size 26 to 14, said; “I never imagined how much losing weight would change my life.
“I was so nervous when I walked through the doors, but I needn’t have worried as I was instantly put at ease by my consultant.
“After she explained everything I went home and followed the plan to the letter. In my first week I lost 10lbs by eating pasta and jacket potatoes. I couldn’t believe it.
“Losing weight has made me more confident and active. I love to go to the gym and I have also joined a Nordic walking group which is great fun.
“These are things I would have struggled to do 7st heavier.
“My family has been so supportive.”
Karen was voted Woman of the Year by her fellow slimming group members in August.
She said: “I was on my own personal journey losing weight for me, but hearing that I was inspiring and motivating others really made me think. I was accepted as a Slimming World consultant and I am mid-way through my training.
“I’m so excited to have the opportunity to help and support other people and I can’t wait to get started.”
