Sharyn has lost over 3 stone in the last 12 months and is so thrilled to be down 3 sizes in clothes! And doesn’t she look great!
Sharyn says she’d been yoyo dieting for years after she’d had two knee replacements – but had never really lost the weight she wanted. She finally decided to do something about it 12 months ago.
“I wanted to do something for me!” says Sharyn “I wanted to look after my health and to be here for my grand-children. I’d known Marie for years, so went along to the Slimtone class in the Garw.
“It’s the best thing I’ve done – what an inspiration Marie is, as well as a lovely friend! I’ve lost 3 stone in 12 months and have dropped 3 dress sizes! I’ve got a little more to lose as I’m having a hip replacement soon and want to be really fit for that. I’m also going to be a great grandmother later this year, so that’s another reason to get myself in trim.”
“Losing the weight has been great and I love going to class. The Slimtone Lifestyle Plan really suits me. One of my favourites is a Warburtons pitta bread popped in the toaster and filled with ham and salad. It’s so crispy and very filling. I also like the Slimtone curry and, now with my Soup Maker, make lots of soups which are tasty and really help to satisfy you.”
One of Sharyn’s favourite soups is a tasty Leek and Potato – it’s simple to make and very inexpensive!
Serves 1 – approx 200 cals
2 large leeks, chopped 2 medium potatoes, diced (approx 280g/10oz)
1 onion, chopped 600ml/1 pint of vegetable stock
