Dot Wadeson has become Exmouth’s latest Slimming World consultant and will be holding weekly weigh-ins and image therapy sessions for members every Wednesday from next month.

Having joined in September last year after being recommended to the programme by a friend, Dot lost three stone in less than four months.

She said the confidence she had gained from losing weight was ‘priceless’.

“I fell in love with the Slimming World plan and how easy it was 
to follow – being able to eat the same foods as before, but healthily,” she said.

“Not having to give up sweets and takeaways was one of the best things for me.

“I am now at target and couldn’t have imagined how much my life would change – not just the food I eat but having the confidence and the fitness to be able to try new things like a 5k run.

“I absolutely cannot wait to help people achieve their dreams in the same way that I was helped.”

Dot recalls how as a child she was not able to fit into princess dress at Disneyland and she went from a size 14 to a size 20.

She tried going to the gym, cutting out all the high calorie foods and even took diet pills.

It was during lunch with a mutual friend that she found Slimming World.

She added: “It wasn’t really something I had ever considered before but at this point I was willing to try anything to try and get my weight under control.

“After some deep thinking, I met up with a friend who was at her Slimming World target and she walked me over to my very first group.”

Dot went on to lose six-and-a-half pounds in her first week and has since gone on to reach her individual four-stone weight loss target.

Now she wants to show others how the Slimming World plan can change their life.

Her first group will be taking place at Exmouth Football Club, in Southern Road on Wednesday, August 16, from 9.30am.
