I’d like to start by featuring my cousin, Carol Blum. Carol lives in the United Kingdom and is a retired schoolteacher. She has two children and three grandchildren whom she adores. Check out her awesome photo at the top of the page!
Carol has struggled with her weight for many years, and after seeing the pictures below of herself at her heaviest weight of more than 250 pounds, she realized she had to do something if she wanted to be around to enjoy her grandchildren for several years.
Carol followed a program in the U.K. called “Slimming World,” which is similar to Weight Watchers in the U.S. She took frequent walks and found ways to continue to enjoy food – just healthier options and portion sizes.
Today, Carol is a slim 147 pounds. She has more energy and is enjoying activities with her family, especially her precious grandchildren. I’m so proud of her, and I’m also grateful for her encouragement and support as I continue my efforts to return to a healthier weight. Carol gives me hope! Check out her awesome “after” photo below! Congratulations, Carol! You are AWESOME and an inspiration to us all!
