Jessica Gilbert, 37, a mum from Newport, downsized from a size 30 to a size 12 after joining Ringland slimming world group, after losing and incredible 12 stone now feels happier and more comfortable in her own skin.
she said: “I started to put on weight after giving birth to my son. He was born at 25 weeks, and so we had long stays in hospital which caused me to gain lots of weight. I remember feeling like I would never be happy in my own skin again, but I’ve realised that when people believe in you – and you believe in yourself – you can do anything you set your mind to.”
Being a part of Slimming world means to be able to adopt a new way of life, she continued “I still eat all my favourite meals, like cooked breakfasts, curries and roast dinners. I just prepare and cook them differently now and they taste so much better”.
“I feel like a different woman to the one who walked into Slimming World, and winning Woman of the Year is a real honour because there are so many amazing women in our group.”
Slimming world is a life changing decision, as the weight began to shed, her love for the gym started to grow, and she goes most days. She has also taken part in a 10km run for charity and regularly goes on hikes up mountains.
“I really hope my weight loss can inspire other people to get started on their own journey and know that there’s a whole group of people waiting to support them every step of the way – especially at the Ringland group”.
This lovely mum is a huge inspiration to everyone and I hope she inspires other women and men to change their lives in the same way.
