Debbie is one of twelve Slimmers of the Year 2013 who have lost a staggering 102 stone between them. Debbie received her award – along with £1,000 cash – from Rosemary Conley, CBE, at a glittering ceremony held at the London Marriott County Hall Hotel on Thursday 3rd January.
Debbie had been overweight for over 20 years but when her father became ill with cardiac disease and she watched him deteriorate for two years it made her realise she did not want to put her two children through the same anguish of seeing a parent suffer. “I knew cardiac disease was hereditary and wanted to minimise my own risk and become healthier for the sake of my boys,” says Debbie.
And, when Debbie struggled to get up Pen-y-ghent - one of the Yorkshire Dales’ 3 peaks - on a family walk, she knew she had to change her lifestyle for the sake of her health. She completed the walk but as she was so out of breath it had taken her five hours as she had to stop every couple of hundred yards. However, since losing 7st, Debbie has now completed the walk again and this time it took her just two-and-a-half hours.
Rosemary Conley class finderDebbie says she wanted a slimming club that also offered exercise as she knew it was key to not only losing weight, but maintaining it, so she chose the Rosemary Conley Diet & Fitness Club where some of her work colleagues were already losing lots of weight, and, after joining in April 2011, she succeeded in shedding 6lb in the first week. “It was the perfect incentive to keep going with the diet,” says Debbie.
After losing her first stone in a month, it took her roughly the same amount of time to lose her second stone. And, after that, she lost a further stone every 2 months and by December 2011, she was already down to 11st 5lb. Sadly, that Christmas, Debbie’s father passed away, but she was relieved that he had seen her lose the majority of her weight. “He was so proud of me,” adds Debbie.
Debbie reached her goal weight in May 2012, and, since losing such an incredible amount of weight, she has gone from being someone who never exercised to someone who embraces exercise with a passion. “I started off attending one class a week and as I got into the swing of it I began to exercise at home, doing Wii Fit and following Rosemary’s videos, which are amazing,” says Debbie. “I love exercise now and it’s so much a part of my life. I get up at 5.45am each morning and do around 35-40 minutes of exercise which has helped me to tone up. Since exercising my figure has been completely transformed and I love being fit and active!”
