Do you struggle with your weight loss goals? Do you find yourself yo-yo-ing up and down the scale? Could you use some inspiration, motivation, and real-life stories about people who have successfully lost weight and kept it off? If so, then today’s podcast is for you!
How in the HELL did I get here is proud to present Slimming Stories around the world, a podcast produced and hosted by my friend and fellow podcaster, Claire Oldum-West. Claire is an accessible and honest host who loves discussing the journey of weight loss and committing to a fitness regime.
Claire, herself was stuck in a rut and struggled with a cycle of losing and gaining weight. In 2018, she created Slimming Stories around the world because she knew she wasn’t alone in her weight loss challenges and she felt called to join with others who had similar struggles.
As you’ll hear in this podcast, transformation stories and conversations about weight loss are two of Claire’s favorite thing. She believes a great transformation story proves that long-term weight gain can be lost, and when you hear others discuss their challenges, it reassures everyone that they are not alone. I’m not going to lie, this is a very motivational and inspiring podcast!

Notes about this episode:
Has your doctor ever encouraged you to improve your health by losing a few pounds? If so you will be able to relate to Aoife Larking my guest on this week’s podcast. It’s fair to say that Aoife’s doctor cut straight to the point when announcing that if Aoife didn’t do anything about her eating habits that her friends and family would be carrying her out in a box! Harsh, shocking words that hit home to Aoife that shook Aoife into taking action and finding sanctuary with Slimming World. Aoife was 25 stone 9lb when she stepped on the scales at her 1st weigh-in and has had an astonishing weight loss of 14 stone 10lb. Aoife's weight loss and her mobility around the stairs in her home resulted in a fall midway through her weight loss journey but this didn’t stop Aoife. After falling on her staircase suffering a break to her pelvis, tailbone and fractured femur Aoife didn’t give in and the weight loss continued.
A walking challenge came Aoife’s way and with improved fitness, she agreed after all Aoife explained: “it was just a walk”. Aoife had, in fact, agreed to climb the highest mountain in Ireland “Carrauntoohill”, and with no training, after all, it was just a walk Aoife well and truly conquered the mountain! From feeling breathless after walking 3 steps of her staircase to thousands of steps Aoife has come such a long way in more ways than one. Another wonderful lady sharing her story to inspire you into taking action….what are you waiting for!
