Share With Your Friends


A slimmer who transformed his life by losing over 4 stone is using his success to shape a whole new career helping other people change their lives and achieve their weight loss dreams too.

Jerry Leahy joined his local Slimming World group in Youghal over 2 years ago and dropped from 17 stone 9 pounds to 13 stone 4 pounds.

When I first joined Slimming World as a member, I never dreamed that I would end up helping other people to lose weight but now I just can’t wait to get started. After losing over 4st and completing my training, it’s a privilege for me to be able to pass on the experience, insight and understanding that helped me, so that I can give my members the support they need to get to target.

His group has been up and running in Tallow Co.Waterford at St Patrick’s Parish Hall on Thursday at 5.30pm and 7.30pm with huge successes and weight losses.

Jerry will now also open a new group on the 08th January 2019 at 5.30pm at St Patrick’s Parish Hall Tallow.

“Support is really the most important thing. It all starts with feeling that you’re not alone. I couldn’t have lost over 4 stone without the weekly help, encouragement and understanding of my own Consultant, Carol, and her amazing group in Youghal. As someone who has lost weight myself I know the challenges people can face, which is why, along with the group, I will be there to support every one of my members all the way to their chosen target weight. Setting targets, sharing recipes and other ideas, and working together as a group to overcome challenges and celebrate success is so important to a successful journey. That’s why, at my Slimming World group, there’ll be tons of support, encouragement and fun.

“Like a lot of slimmers, I had tried to lose weight so many times before by following numerous diets but they were never sustainable because I’d always get tired of restricting what I ate. I thought I was destined to struggle with my weight for the rest of my life, but when I came to Slimming World it was different. I never felt like I was on a diet. The eating plan encourages you to eat lots of tasty, filling foods.


“Slimming World isn’t just about changing what you eat. Becoming more active is important too. Our Body Magic programme takes the threat out of activity by showing people, many of whom have unpleasant memories of being forced to take part in activity at school, how they can build activity into their daily routine without having to take up traditional forms of exercise like going to the gym or running. Everything counts from walking to gardening to washing the car. I love walking to get my Body Magic! Even at the office at work I move as much as possible. As a Consultant it’s my role to create that warm, supportive atmosphere to get people sharing their ideas and experiences to help others – it’s going to be great fun!”

Jerry’s Slimming World group is held at St Patrick’s Parish Hall, Tallow, every Thursday at 5.30 pm & 7.30pm. For more information or to join Jerry’s group either pop along to group any Thursday or call him on 086 4679974
