A slimmer who transformed her life by losing almost three stone is using her success to shape a new career, helping other people change their lives and achieve their weight loss dreams.
“Losing 12 stone, 9lbs has changed my life,” says the Athlone Springs group’s Deirdre Sheerin, who was named Slimming World’s ‘Woman of the Year’ 2017 for the group.
Deirdre Sheerin worked as a young Garda stationed in Longford, Moate, and Mullingar. Tragedy struck in 2009 when she was involved in a car accident, sustaining serious injuries which severely damaged her back. After the incident her mobility was greatly reduced and she has lived with severe pain every day since. She also had to use a wheelchair to get about, meaning she led a more sedentary lifestyle; she can walk, but very slowly. Much to Deirdre’s dismay, her weight began to pile on and eventually she went up to a size 26.
