A Sheffield super slimmer has lost an impressive four and a half stone – whilst munching on crisps.
Lucy Pincott, aged 21, was still able to enjoy her favourite snack every day as she shed the stones with Slimming World.
Lucy, of Heeley, said: “I had been overweight since my early teens but my weight got really out of control when I got my own flat.
“The more weight I gained, the more I became isolated from friends and family.
“I didn’t like to get dressed up and go out. Putting on pretty outfits and make up just made me feel like I was dressing up a tank.
“I couldn’t hide how big I had become so instead I stayed home gorging on takeaways and crisps.”
Lucy’s breaking point came one day at work when she was called a ‘fatty’.
The same week, she and her mum joined their local Slimming World group where she was living in London.
She said: “I felt nervous as I walked in but was greeted by loads of warm, friendly welcoming people. The consultant understood how I was feeling and I felt confident I was in the right place.
“I especially loved being able to have a packet of crisps every day and I couldn’t believe it when I’d lost my first stone within a month.”
Lucy eventually gained the confidence to move 200 miles to Sheffield to begin a new career and start up a Slimming World group on a Monday night at Queen’s Road Social Club, Heeley.
“I’m living a whole new life thanks to Slimming World,” said Lucy.
“Most of all I love I can still eat crisps.”
Lucy’s first meeting is on Monday. For details contact her on 07713 854574.
