Mum turns her life around with nine stone weight loss in a year

A woman who embarked on a weight-loss mission after having twins at 43 lost more than nine stone in just one year.

Traci Turnbull, 52, joined her local Slimming World group in a bid to lose weight – both for herself and her two young twin daughters.

She no longer needs to take diabetes medication and says she is now able to chase after her children and teach them to ride a bike.

said Traci Scunthorpe Live : “I had my twins when I was 43 and when they were about two years old I was like, ‘I have to sort myself’. I took eight different medications.

“I wanted to lose weight and do it for me, but also for my girls so they can have me more than their mom.”

In her first week at Slimming World, Traci, from Scunthorpe, lost 11 pounds and says she’s still able to enjoy her favorite foods.

She said: “What I love most about Slimming World is how simple it is. I used to starve myself to lose weight but now I eat myself thin instead of not eating.

“I used to eat fried food, junk food, takeout, chips, cookies, sausage rolls and cakes, but now it’s all just cooked in a different way that fits with food optimization.

“I switched to low-fat cuts of meat. I’ve made small changes, so cook recipes with spray oil instead of lard or goose fat. I love making some of the amazing Slimming World recipes and trying completely new ones that the whole family can enjoy.

“I had a few treats for Christmas, but my Christmas dinner was made the Slimming World way, and that was for the whole family, not just me.

“My partner, my mother and my children are all so supportive.”

Traci, who started Slimming World in 2018, said her kids are amazed at her transformation.

“I can now do absolutely anything that I set my mind to, nothing is holding me back more than when I was carrying my excess weight.

“I feel bad that I missed out on those things with my older two because I was so tall.”

Traci’s Advisor Amanda said, “Traci has done so well during her time as a Slimming World member and has enjoyed the Nutritional Optimization Plan. Traci has proven how effective diet optimization really is and that it is for everyone.

“She transcended her diabetes and health issues to reverse them completely, and with the power of the group, she was able to change her psychology of losing weight and making sure she had set strategies in place to ensure she did too maintains dream weight. Myself and her group are so proud of Traci.”
