Christine Towler swapped elevators for stairs and switched her diet to healthy alternatives.

“Christine’s success was very early on in her journey to meet many of the weight goals she had set and feel her Club10 award (losing 10 percent of her body weight) and the benefits of those results.
“In dealing with Lockdown, Christine is an active member in the virtual group and supports and inspires the rest of her group with her amazing success!”
Dr. Sarah-Elizabeth Bennett, Senior Research Associate at Slimming World, claims that a leaner person is more likely to hit their weight loss goals if they lose 5 pounds or more in the first seven days.
She said, “These data show us that one of the biggest predictors of success is heavy weight loss in the first week, because those who lost 5 pounds or more in the first seven days are four times more likely to lose 10 percent of their body weight in three months .
“Significant weight loss is often associated with ‘quick fix’ diets or restrictive faddy plans, but we can see from our research that it is possible to achieve great results on the scales by following a healthy, balanced eating plan .
“We at Slimming World know that many new members are amazed at the results on the scales in the first week as they can’t believe they could lose so much weight by making simple and easy changes to their shopping, cooking and eating Have made a meal and still enjoy a filling, healthy and varied diet. “
