A MUM-of-two has shed three stone after photos of herself swimming with dolphins made her “look like a whale”.

Ainsley Neish decided to flight the flab three years ago after feeling horrified at seeing photos from her dream holiday to Florida with children Colbie, 10 and Murphy, nine.

The determined mum decided to join her local Slimming World group and lost an incredible three stone in 18 months and transformed her figure and life.

Ainsley told the Times: “I had just piled on lots of weight and I went to Florida with my kids and we went swimming with dolphins, but when I seen the pictures I couldn’t believe it, I looked like a whale.

“Then my mum said to me I should join Slimming World with her and I have never looked back.”

The 32-year-old’s success has helped her to shape a whole new career helping other people change their lives and achieve their weight loss dreams.

Ainsley has dropped from a size 14 to a size 8 and has managed to sustain the weight loss.

Now, she has trained as a Consultant for Slimming World at their national training academy in Derbyshire.

Members at the Springside group are getting ready to welcome Ainsley as their new consultant when she takes over the group on Saturday, September 21.

Since joining slimming world Ainsley has fallen back in love with cooking and shopping.

She said: “I used to love going shopping for clothes before I put weight on but then I just hated it. I just wanted to get to a place where I enjoyed it again. I also wanted to lose weight and be healthier for my kids.

“They are active and I wanted to be able to join in with them.”

Having never attended a weight loss group or tried any other eating plans Ainsley was apprehensive about attending her first group and joining Slimming World but she went along with her mum and now tells everybody that it is the best thing she ever done for herself.

Ainsley’s Slimming World group will be held at Springside Community Centre every Saturday at 9.30am.
