Portadown mum Elaine Murphy felt like Miss Piggy when she was trying to squeeze into a size 20 dress. But now after losing almost four stone the mother of three is on a mission to help others change their lives.
The 57-year-old began to see her weight creep up after having her children and as she could no longer embrace her love of fashion. But with the help of We Slim Together she won thought to a life changing transformation.
The Post Office Clerk has been so inspired that she is now a consultant for We Slim Together helping others meet their healthy lifestyle goals.
But it wasn’t always the case for Elaine. When getting fitted out for a wedding outfit she had to squeeze into a size 20 and felt shame and realised that she was heavier than her husband William.
When it dawned on her that she needed to lose weight Elaine began to question why she felt down, why she felt so self conscious.
Having had a positive experience with one slimming group the tragedy of losing a director she began to slip back to bad ways. With work, raising children and all the associated issues, including changing careers Elaine knew she was heading down a path she didn’t want to be on.
After so long putting others first, it was time for the mother and grandmother to take charge of her own situation.
Attending a We Slim Together class in Randalstown she remembered happy times supporting others in their weight loss journey and was not only losing weight herself, but was ready to step up to the challenge of being a consultant.
Once she had attended training at We Slim Together’s Magherafelt group, Elaine was inspired and eager to help others.
Now as a consultant with the We Slim Together’s, Portadown Seagoe group she feels better than ever, losing weight and helping others down the path of being healthier, fitter and lighter.
And, as for Elaine’s own journey…from 16st she’s now 12st 4lbs. That’s real evidence of success! Are you ready to change your life? Join a WST group or online today.
