A Kirton woman has spoken of her newfound confidence after losing more than 10 stone in weight.

Claire Sharpe, 39, has dropped from a size 20+ to a size 12 after losing a whopping 10 stone, six pounds.

After going from her original weight of 22 stone four pounds to 11 stone 11 pounds, Claire no longer feels self conscious walking into a room full of people.

Claire has no self confidence at a size 20+

Claire said: “I joined Slimming World after yo-yo dieting for many years, I had lost all self-confidence and knew things had to change.

“I had three young children who I needed to be around for and if I carried on treating my body the way I was that may not have been the case.

Now Claire is happy with her new body shape

“I couldn’t believe how much I could eat, filling up on free foods still enjoying the pasta, potatoes and meat that I love and cooking healthy nutritious meals for myself and my family which we all enjoyed.

“I am now 10 stone lighter and have so much self-confidence.

“I actually love what I see in the mirror now.”

Claire’s consultant, Sarah Lote added: “When Claire joined she was not very confident and felt very unfit – once she started to lose weight her confidence grew and soon started combining exercise with Food Optimising.

“Claire is a truly inspirational lady and is inspiring members to join and make the healthy lifestyle changes she has made.”
