Derry mother-of-two Maria Jackson enrolled on a Slimming World class and proved so successful she is now to take her very own class.
“I’ve fallen in love with food again and shed an amazing three stone,” she told the Journal.
Maria was so worried about “being the biggest bridesmaid at my best friend’s wedding” that she joined her local Slimming World class and shed an amazing three stone.
Five years on,Maria is about to become the new Slimming World Consultant in Rosemount.
Maria admits: “I let my weight get out of control. So when my best friend asked me to be her bridesmaid I decided it was time to try something new.
“I had put on an unbelievable four stone. I was so busy that more and more weight just crept on without me really even noticing.”
On the recommendation of a work colleague at Airporter Maria tried Slimming World World.
“I was nervous the first night I joined but I need not have worried, I couldn’t believe how welcoming and fun group was.
“Within weeks I had lost a stone and was getting compliments from people about how well I looked.
“I slipped into my size 12 dress for my friend’s wedding and danced the night away.”
Maria is taking over the groups that meet in Rosemount on Thursday 15th August.
“I am excited to be returning to my role as a Consultant so that I can help my members lose weight and keep it off.
“If I can do it, anyone can!” she says.
Maria’s classes are held at Rosemount Primary School, Helen Street every Thursday at 5pm or 7pm.
