Ben, who is supported by our Manor Barn service has made some huge steps in his weight loss journey.

Ben, who moved into Manor Barn in Cheshire three years ago, had been struggling with his weight, his relationship with food and healthy eating for much of his life.

With support from Jackie, (Support Worker at Manor Barn), Ben joined Slimming World.

All of the staff in the service embraced the healthy eating programme in a bid to support Ben in his efforts.

Angela Swale, Service Manager said “Jackie got us all eating low fat breakfast muffins and ‘fake-aways’, Ben weighed in the following week and had lost 6lb!”

Ben then attended Slimming World for his second weigh in, Angela said “Ben lost a further 3lb! A total of 9lb in two weeks and he achieved his first half stone certificate… the first of many”

It was not long before Ben had lost his first stone! He continued along this path and has now lost more than two and a half stone.

Ben also recently won an award for ‘Mr Sleek 2018’.

Angela said “Ben currently has just 6lb to lose before he reaches his target weight!”

The whole team are incredibly proud of Ben and continue to support everyone in the service with maintaining healthy food relationships.
