Wingfield slimmer wants to share weight loss dream with others
A mum-of-two who transformed her life by losing 4.5 stone is using her success to help others change their lives and achieve their weight loss dreams too.
Rachael Mittell, from Wingfield, dropped from a size 18 to a size 12 in nine months.
Now, she has trained as a consultant for Slimming World and, with the latest government figures revealing that 68 per cent of Norfolk’s population is overweight or obese, Rachael said her new role has never been more important.
“Obesity is becoming such a huge issue across the UK. When I first joined Slimming World, I never dreamed that I would end up helping other people to lose weight but now I just can’t wait to get started,” said Rachael, 37.
“After losing 4.5 stone and completing my training, it’s a privilege for me to be able to pass on the experience, insight and understanding that helped me, so that I can give my members the support they need to get to target.”
Rachael, who had struggled with her weight for years, said she wouldn’t have been able to lose 4.5 stone without the help and encouragement of her own consultant and group in Harleston.
“Support is really the most important thing. It all starts with feeling that you’re not alone,” said Rachael.
“I know the challenges people can face, which is why I will be there to support every one of my members all the way to their chosen target weight.”
Rowena Mason who manages Rachael as a Team Developer, said: “With Rachael’s experience of being a successful Slimming World member and her kind and warm personality and great sense of humour, I just know that she’ll be an amazing support to members, encouraging them all the way to their target weight.”
Rachael’s Slimming World group will be held at Archbishop Sancroft High School in Harleston every Thursday at 7.30pm from November 21.
