Tracey Greenep finally ran out of excuses for not joining her local branch of Slimming World in Corby and went along to join the group.
Two years later, Tracey, 43, has shed 10st and 1lb and has completely changed her life.
She said: “I joined in March 2012 and it took me three weeks to pluck up the courage to walk into the group.
“I always found some excuse not to go, but I shouldn’t have worried.
“I have been supported throughout my journey by my friends and family and I love the support I get in group.
“Although I was active as a child, I was never interested in running and now I have just completed the NHS Couch to 5K programme.”
Tracey attends the Slimming World group which meets at Danesholme Community Centre every Tuesday. For more information about the group call 07753 147228.
