A mother inspired by her own weight loss is opening a slimming group in Borehamwood.

Hannah Harman will begin signing up members for Slimming World when it opens in Shenley Road at 7.30pm on June 4..

She joined Slimming World herself in 2010 and since then has lost 3 and a half stones.

Hannah said:“I’ve got two girls and I decided it’s time to get rid of the baby weight and get fit.

“It was pretty easy after that. With Slimming World you are filling yourself up with fruits and vegetables and healthy foods.”

The weight loss plan also has an allowance of occasional treats.

The slimming group entails weekly support meetings and weigh-ins. Hannah added the friendly atmosphere allows for the exchange of recipes and advice.
