Annabelle Stemp always struggled with her weight and as a child was referred to a slimming group.

By the age of 19, she was wearing size 20 clothes.

Annabelle said: “I had lots of friends but never had a boyfriend.

“I didn’t really want to go out because I was called the fat one or the ugly one.”

It was when Annabelle moved to Market Rasen that things changed.

“I decided to join the local Slimming World group and I have never looked back,” she said.

“It isn’t a diet, it is a change of lifestyle.

“Now, I can walk into a shop and pick up a size 10 or 12 dress and it is amazing.

“Losing the weight has boosted my confidence as well.”

Annabelle, who celebrates her 25th birthday today (Wednesday), has trained as a Slimming World consultant and opens her own group in Market Rasen this Saturday.

She said: “I want to help people and give them a new lease of life, no matter what their age.”

The group will be held in the Methodist Church schoolroom at 8.30am.
