A Caistor woman has been given a new lease of life after losing almost six stone in weight – all in less than one year.
Now, Jeannette Wheatley has been voted ‘Woman of the Year’ and ‘Miss Slinky’ at her local weightloss class.
“I set my first target with Louise, my Slimming World consultant, to lose three stone, and thought it was too much, but here I am, 10 months later, five stone and 10 pounds lighter,” said Jeanette.
Jeannette’s weight had rocketed after her movement was limited due to illness.
She started suffering with severe pains in her head and neck.
Eventually, she was diagnosed with an arachnoid cyst in her brain and had surgery in November 2014.
“It was very scary, but also liberating as suffering with pain from getting up in the morning to going to bed was very exhausting,” she said.
“I was feeling great but knew I had piled on lots of weight, at my heaviest weighing 18st 6lbs, and feeling out of breath.
“I would like to thank Louise and everyone at the Caistor group for their support; all the lovely women and men make everyone feel so comfortable.”
