BANBRIDGE woman Sharon Niblock is celebrating after reaching her target weight loss of three stone with the local Weightwatchers group.
Having joined the group in January the 41-year-old was determined to stick to a healthy lifestyle and is now reaping the benefits. A keen runner, the mother-of-one said she has completely changed her lifestyle but feels it wasn’t too much of a challenge because of Weightwatcher’s simple programme.
“It didn’t even feel like I was on a diet most of the time because of the way the programme works,” she said. “As long as you stick to your points you are able to have a night out, the odd chcolate bar and even the odd chinese so it’s great!
“I feel a lot fitter now and love to run. It’s great to be able to wear nice clothes and maybe even pick up some things I wouldn’t have been able to wear before.
“And it’s ver flexible with both morning and evening meetings. I would have gone to a lot of the morning meetings and I think there must be between 20 and 30 members now.”
And Sharon had more than a few words of praise for the group leader Bernie Walsh.
“Bernie is just great,” said Sharon. “She is able to give you fantastic motivation and is just a great group leader so I’d like to thank her for all her help. And I also want to thanks John Niblock, my personal trainer, for all his help and support.”
