Sale mum loses three and a half stone after post-pregnancy weight gain and wants to help others do the same
A SALE mum is on a mission to help mums-to-be prevent excess weight gain before, during and after pregnancy, after losing three and a half stone herself.
Mum-of-two, Nicole Nixon, said she lost the weight in less than nine months through a Slimming World plan, which enabled her and her family to eat more healthily.
Nicole said: “After my second child I struggled to lose my baby weight – I snacked all day on biscuits, cake and chocolate and continued to eat as I did when I was pregnant. I had no idea how much weight I was piling on, I was in complete denial.
“On the day of my daughter’s birthday party, rushing to get ready, I tried on the biggest dress I had left. But it didn’t fit.
“I was heartbroken, how had I got this big? I decided that was the last straw, some old colleagues had raved about Slimming World years ago so I decided to go along and see if it could help me.”
Nicole said she was welcomed with open arms, even with a baby in tow, and was able to lose four and a half pounds in her first week.
In fact Nicole is so happy with her achievement that she has started her own Slimming World group at St John the Divine Church, on Brooklands Road, which launches on October 30 at 7.30pm.
“I want to inspire people who want to lose weight, and what better time to start than in the run up to Christmas?” Nicole added.
