A SLIMMER who transformed her life by losing almost four stone is using her success to shape a whole new career helping other people change their lives.

Tracey Gardner, a retired advertising sales manager, joined her local Slimming World group in Bromsgrove in July 2018 and dropped from 88kg to 64kg.

She has now trained as a consultant for Slimming World at their national training academy in Derbyshire.

She will be taking over the Catshill Slimming World group on June 26, running two sessions – 5.30pm and 7.30pm.

Tracey said: “After years of being overweight I knew something had to change.

"The catalyst was when I realised I was struggling to keep up with my two beautiful granddaughters when I took them to the park.”

She added: "I never dreamed that I would end up helping other people to lose weight but now I can’t wait to get started."
