After losing three stone in just over a year, Jason Perrio-Hunter is hoping to use his weight loss journey to inspire others.
The 29-year-old, of Thurston, said he had tried to lose wight before but only managed it after joining Slimming World.
Now he has trained as a Slimming World consultant and in January he will be taking over the group which meets at Stanton Community Village Hall at 5.30pm and 7.30pm on Thursdays.
“Walking through those doors changed my life,” said Jason.
“I decided to join when I went to a friend’s wedding and saw photos of me not looking my best. My relationship with food was awful, having take-away five nights a week and doing little exercise.
“Those pictures made me realise I needed to change my lifestyle and eating habits. I’ve gone from a 38inch waist to a 32. Now I’m able to be more active and enjoy my social life instead of sitting at home watching television.”
“I’m now a target member with a three stone weight loss and I am maintaining my weight loss whilst enjoying the foods I love and never feeling hungry,” he added.
“I feel that the time is now right to help inspire others, whilst going through the same experience with them.”
