Usually someone might be offended to be called a loser but Sylwia is delighted. The proud 32-year-old has been named Galway’s Slimming World Greatest Loser 2014 because she has lost a fantastic eight stone.
The super slimmer bagged the prize, which was awarded to the member of the Slimming World group who has lost the most weight, and says her weight loss has changed her life: “I feel like a new woman since losing weight, in fact I look so different that people who I haven’t seen for a while often cannot believe I am the same person. But for me it’s the change on the inside that has been the biggest – I am happier, healthier, and lots more confident now.”
