A Kettering woman has set up her own slimming group after shedding two stone following years of anxiety.

Candice Fleming battled with her weight for 10 years, feeling deprived of the food she loved or enduring remarks about her weight gain.

Her general day intake would consist of crisps, chocolate, pizza, or anything that would fit the bill of a sweet fix or greasy meal.

She then joined Slimming World - and she says it’s the best decision she ever made.

She said: “I admit that as an anxiety sufferer, I was more than a little nervous when walking into the group for the first time.

“Continuing to walk into that group was the best decision I have ever made.

“I now have more energy, and have become more active enjoying walking just because I want to, plus I take the stairs instead of the lift or escalator at any opportunity.

“I have also recently introduced yoga as a form of strength and toning.”

Candice is now opening her own group on Wednesday, January 27 at 7.30pm at Hayfield Cross School in Cranford, Kettering.
