“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.

Much to Deirdre’s dismay, her weight began to pile on and eventually she went up to a size 26.
