A woman has shown off her “incredible” weight loss after losing seven stones.
Jamie Loader began his journey two years ago after a family vacation in Italy.
The 29-year-old and his family travel to Italy every year, but after a trip in 2018, Jamie decided that what he saw was enough after being “absolutely invasive”.
A few months later, she joined Slimming World.

“I didn’t just look like me, I looked much older and older. And so in January 2019, when I made the decision.”
Before embarking on the weight loss journey, Jamie weighed just over 17 pounds and since losing seven.
This is not the first time Jamie has lost weight since joining the Slimming World Group a few years ago.
During this time, Jamie almost managed to lose a stone but he couldn’t stop it.
“I probably lost seven pounds, I went to a rock and thought, you know, I can do it myself,” he said.

After joining the new group in 2019, Jenby, from Acranton, Lynx, now weighs 9 pounds 13 pounds.
“I feel like a new person, I’ve just gained so much confidence and I’m happy. My outlook on life, I was really negative about everything,” he said.
“I was always the one who was dressed in black and always made excuses not to go out because of my looks.
“I like seeing people and doing things now and how happy I would be.”
Through Slimming World, Jamie can control her diet and enjoy planned meals, replacing weekly takeaways for fake ones.
But when it comes to epidemics, the general group session had to be moved online and Jamie thinks she would have struggled without their support.
“Everyone was in lockdown and that’s why it was the only thing I could control, my food and I started exercising,” he said. “I was a little nervous when it all started.
“I couldn’t focus as much on my weight loss or healthy eating as I used to. Because everything else seemed to be in the air.”

“When my members made healthy behavioral changes before the lockdown, they did not know that it would provide them with the tools to cope with this difficult time, and to successfully reduce or maintain weight loss. Will help them. “
Now with a positive outlook on his future, Jamie is more optimistic about keeping himself healthy and even took part in a challenge to complete 400,000 steps to raise £ 200 million for the Samaritans. Is.
