Tracy Jones: Lost an amazing 9 stone

A LLANDYSUL woman has lost an amazing 9 stones with Slimming World which she says has ‘transformed’ her life. Tracy Jones, a busy mum, joined the Llandysul group in May 2015 and achieved he 9 stones loss by January this year.

Tracy said: “I was feeling sad and had no confidence or self-esteem when I was at my heaviest after my children were born. I had absolutely no energy to run around after my two boys. I decided enough was enough and then a Slimming World leaflet came through my door.

“So I went along and nervously dragged myself through the doors. That day was the start of a better a life for me and my children. I shouldn’t have worried, I was made to feel so welcome, everyone was kind and friendly and made me feel at ease.

“I have tried every diet in the past and didn’t quite believe that just by changing the way I eat to a healthier diet. I started to see the pounds falling of me every week.

“And my family were eating healthily too. I don’t feel like I’m on a diet as I can eat lots and don’t miss out on treats. I’m a big portion girl and on Slimming World I can have as much free food as I want, honestly. Family favourites are curry, spaghetti bolognese and Slimming World chips.

“Since losing my weight I feel so different and people hardly recognise me. I love clothes shopping again and don’t get down because nothing fits me. The best thing is that I have fantastic energy and even play football with my boys without getting hopelessly out of breath. I’m a proper mum again, one that my boys can be proud of.

“I owe a lot to my new friends and really couldn’t have done without the love, help and support of my consultant, Elaine and also the Llandysul Slimming World group I have made lots of friends who encourage me every week. She has always had faith in me build my confidence and self-belief. My family and friends have given me heaps of support. This is it now, the new, slim, happy healthy me is here for life. It’s not a diet but a lifestyle.”

Elaine, her consultant, added: “Tracy is a very good role model in the group and she helps and encourages others. We meet every Tuesday evening at The Cricket Club in Llandysul 7:30pm.”

Man assaulted nurses while being restrained

Published

A PRE-SENTENCE report will be prepared on a Ceredigion man who assaulted two nurses and destroyed an extractor fan.

Lewis Hill, aged 24, of Brynhoffnant, appeared before Haverfordwest Magistrates Court on Tuesday (Aug 14) to plead guilty to the three charges.

Prosecuting, Mr Vaughan Pritchard-Jones told the Court: “At 11pm in the evening on January 30, the defendant was on the roof of Bronglais Hospital threatening to jump off. Police and medical personnel attended and were able to talk him down.

“He was taken to the Cwm Seren ward in St Davids Park, Carmarthen, where they arrived at 1:03am the following morning. During the course of being assessed he became aggressive and had to be restrained by staff. He kicked out at the first nurse and was then put on the floor.

“Whilst on the floor he was throwing his head back and forth and the staff nurse, who was concerned for him, tried to hold his head but he continued to throw his head and because of the force he was using he trapped her finger onto the floor.

“The charge did originally read as common assault but the nurse went to get her finger x-rayed which revealed the fracture.

“After that incident he got free and he started damaging an extractor fan which he completely destroyed.
“I am not sure why the case has taken so long to come here but at the time of the offence he was on a suspended prison sentence, the period for which has now elapsed.”

Defending, Mrs Katie Hanson added: “He is extremely sorry for his actions on that night. He was on the roof of Bronglais Hospital trying to commit suicide. There are serious mental health issues but he accepts he was struggling on the floor but he did not intentionally hurt anyone and he apologises for his actions.”

Magistrates ordered that a pre-sentence report be prepared and Hill was released on unconditional bail and must return to court on Wednesday, August 29 for sentencing.
