My name is Ellis, I’m 22 and I’m from Bristol. I joined slimming world in 2017, and here’s my story.. When I was 20, I hit my highest weight at 16st 11lbs. I was a size 20 in clothing and I was the most unhappiest I’ve ever been. At the age of 20, all my friends were going into town in skimpy dresses and I chose to stay in to avoid any embarrassment. I was a secret eater, filling drawers with wrappers to hide all evidence. I was beginning to get some pains in my stomach, and I hadn’t had a period in over a year, so I decided to go to the doctors. I had all the symptoms for a syndrome called #polycysticovariansyndrome
I had several tests done, and the doctors told me that I had two choices, cure this by tablets for the rest of my life or loose some weight. PCO gives women trouble conceiving and the thought of this at age 20, persuaded me that something needed to be done.
In February 2017 I joined slimming world. My 5.30 group have been the best part of my journey, I’ve made some friends for life. Staying to group is definitely the best thing I’ve ever done. By August I had lost 4 stone.. I am a completely new person.
In 2018 I hit 4.5 stone. I’m now a size 10/12 and I have no signs of PCO.
