A slimmer who transformed her life by losing two stone is using her success to shape a whole new career helping other people change their lives for the better too.
Sheida Esfandiari joined her Slimming World group in Uppingham in June and has sine lost two stone and says she couldn’t be happier.
She said: “I was so nervous arriving at the group, and chose to sit in the corner not knowing what to expect, but I was soon rescued by a smiling consultant and welcomed into group straight away.
“I was amazed with what I could eat, and on my first week I lost 4.5lbs.
“With group I soon learned how to still eat my favourite meals like burger and chips, and takeaways.
“I quickly made plenty of new friends and felt settled in my new community straight away.”
Now, Sheida has trained as a consultant for Slimming World and members at the group are getting ready to welcome her as their new consultant when she takes over the group on Tuesday.
Sheida added: “When I first joined Slimming World as a member, I never dreamed that I would end up helping other people to lose weight but now I just can’t wait to get started.
“It’s a privilege for me to be able to pass on the experience, insight and understanding that helped me, so that I can give my members the support they need to get to target.
“As a slimmer myself I know how hard it can be and I couldn’t have lost 2 stone without my consultant and my group.
“Sharing recipes and other ideas, and overcoming disappointments as well as celebrating success was all part of the journey, so there’ll be lots of support, encouragement and fun at my Slimming World group.”
Sheida’s Slimming World group will be held at Uppingham Town Hall every Tuesday at 7.30pm from November 3. For more information or to join Sheida’s group either go to a meeting or call her on 07794993490.
