Leah’s a Slimming Queen!

Leah, who lives at one of our supported living services for people with learning disabilities in Havering, joined slimming world on the 14th January with the wish to lose weight.

At the time Leah’s mobility was poor and she used a stroller to aid her to walk.

When Leah accessed the community, Leah relied on her stroller to have rest breaks as it has a small seat that she turns and sits on. The staff support Leah to purchase her meals at Iceland where the slimming world meals are exclusive and Leah enjoys choosing from the vast range.

Once Leah returns home the staff support her to complete a menu with all her healthy options. Leah attends her Slimming World group every week to get weighed and has won slimmer of the week and slimmer of the month!

Leah has done amazingly well.  She’s lost two and a half stones and gone from a size 22 to a size 14!

Leah’s mobility has improved so much that she no longer needs to take her stroller out into the  community and many people from within her community have praised her and complimented the staff on their efforts to support Leah.

Well done Leah, you’re an inspiration!
