Slimming world’s Miss Slinky 2020: Teacher becomes Slimming World’s Miss Slinky after shedding 5st in one year

Amy Hodgson, 24, a teacher from Liverpool was so unhappy with her appearance when she went to Blue Lagoon for New Year with her boyfriend Jonathan. She barely took any photographs and said she never felt more embarrassed with the way she looked when she took a trip to Iceland. She said: “Visiting Iceland was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime, but I felt like it’d been ruined because of how I felt about my weight.”

But a phone call from her sister gave Amy just the motivation she needed, she continued: “Shortly after we got home from Iceland my sister rang me and asked if I would join Slimming World with her. She wanted to lose her baby weight but didn’t want to go on her own. I decided to stop putting it off and just went for it.”– so she joined Slimming world in January 2019. As soon as she got to grips with the group’s Food Optimising eating plan, the teacher, from Liverpool, lost 5st to scoop Slimming World’s Miss Slinky 2020 award.

Amy soon got to grips with Slimming World’s Food Optimising eating plan, which enables slimmers to lose weight without ever feeling hungry or deprived and filling up on plenty of Free Food (potatoes, pasta, rice, lean meat, fish, eggs, fruit and vegetables). She says: “I’d been so used to trying to lose weight by restricting myself that at first I couldn’t believe how much I could eat! I’d been having four to five takeaways a week before joining Slimming World, so this new way of looking at food was a revelation. I went from barely cooking at all to being the chef of the house!”

It’s not just Amy’s relationship which has felt the benefits of her weight loss. She says: “As a teacher I used to feel really self-conscious about my weight. Children just say whatever is in their minds. I remember one pupil once said I was ‘big like mummy’ and it crushed me. I knew he didn’t mean anything malicious by saying it – but it still hurt. I used to worry about job interviews too”

Although her boyfriend didn’t go to the group with her, he enjoyed Amy’s cooking and ended up losing weight also, “Jonathan didn’t come along to group with me, yet just by enjoying the same meals as me he has lost 2½ stone! It’s given our relationship a boost too”

“When I was at my biggest I felt as though I had lost myself. I wasn’t the bubbly confident girl my friends and family knew and loved. Now I feel like I’m back to myself – and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. I love taking part in Slimming World’s Body Magic programme and getting awards for making activity a part of my routine.”
