Her twin sister Sharon who is a consultant there helped Lisa get on board to losing weight and since joining in 2017 she has dropped almost five dress sizes from a size 22 to a 14.

Lisa said: “I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in June 2016 and I was prescribed Metformin and Altorva Statin. I decided to try and reverse the condition by taking control of my diet as I was determined not to be insulin dependent.

"I had been a Slimming World member before, but I had never done anything like it with my sister and thought the extra support and competition would help me. The Group was extremely welcoming as I learnt about the plan and the support in group developed not only additional food learning but friends too."

After losing weight, Lisa has actually managed to reverse a Type 2 diabetes and no longer has to take her medication.

Her story hopes to inspire other woman who may be in the similar position as her.

She added: "Slimming World is a lifestyle change and the healthy eating plan allows you to lose weight but never go hungry. Being diabetic, I took advice and used the additional information supplied by Slimming World. Small changes are easy; the plan is so adaptable and you can still enjoy a full English breakfast and chips.”

Sharon, who runs the Holly Spring Primary School Slimming World Group, said:" “We know that the obesity crisis is a ticking timebomb and that type 2 diabetes is linked to obesity. I believe the support you get from being in a warm, empowering group environment is key to helping you to eat more healthily and be more active.

"In relation to this, my sister and I completed the Shine Marathon Walk in September this year in aid of Cancer Research UK; something which she would have struggled to do before her weight loss.”
