A woman was so touched at being asked to be a bridesmaid that she decided to make a change to her lifestyle and lose weight.
Skegness woman, Rose Pacey, said the request from her brother ‘changed her life’ and made her make a new year’s resolution to shift excess pounds.
But just over nine months since making the changes and joining Slimming World, Rose has lost a staggering five-and-a-half-stone.
“Before deciding to lose the weight and looking back at my pictures, I tried to avoid thinking too much about how I looked. It was hard to believe; I was crying in front of the mirror knowing how big I actually was,” she added.
Rose says she has always been unhappy with her weight since leaving school and craved snacks while sat in front of the television.
“My brother and his girlfriends changed my life in November 2012 when he asked me to be their bridesmaid at their wedding,” Rose said.
Rose lost an incredible 12-and-a-half-pounds in the first week and wore a size 24/26. Now she is just a size 12/14.
With the help of Slimming World, Rose has almost reached her goal and now wants to help others.
