Alan Kenny of Parkhead has been awarded Slimmer of Lockdown after losing a whopping 3st 9lbs in 20 weeks by joining his local Parkhead Slimming World group.
Alan joined the group in February 2020 after battling with his weight all of his adult life. Alan’s wife Angela who is a member at the group had lost 2.5 stone on the plan and suggested Alan went along with her. Alan was apprehensive and didn’t know what to expect, but he was warmly welcomed into the group by his consultant Karen Wright and all of the friendly Slimming World members.
Alan’s diet consisted of fatty foods, sugary energy drinks and takeaways. His weight increased to 24st and his health deteriorated. He had developed high blood pressure, was borderline diabetic and had been hospitalised for leg problems, he had no energy and was constantly tired so immediate action had to be taken.
Alan, a chef, was surprised at the foods available on Slimming World’s Food Optimising plan and couldn’t believe he could eat his favourite meals and lose weight but he gave it a go and within his first four weeks he had lost 1st in weight. With these amazing meals, Alan and Joanne could feed their whole family while achieving their weight loss goals.
Alan was awarded Slimmer of Lockdown at his group for his dedication to his weight loss. Now almost 4st lighter Alan feels happier, more confident, fitter and healthier.
Alan’s consultant Karen Wright from Parkhead group said “I am so proud of Alan and all he has achieved, he has a great attitude towards his slimming goals and he and Angela have a healthy competition between them that keeps them pushing forward to achieve their weight loss dreams. They are both a pleasure to support.”
Alan encourages anyone apprehensive about joining their local Slimming World group to take the first step. He said: “The members and Consultants are all amazing and so supportive and it has been the best move I have ever made. Myself, my wife and my family are happier and healthier than ever. I would recommend Slimming World to anyone.”
