Slimmers in Melksham’s Bowerhill group are celebrating a successful year after losing a total of 5,006 lbs between them in 2015.
The members are boosting their weight losses even higher this month as they continue to enjoy the power of unlimited free food during Free Food February.
Throughout Free Food February, the slimmers will be challenged to pass on their love of healthy food to their family and friends in a bid to ‘love it, cook it, share it’ with the whole local community.
With so many members joining its groups, Slimming World has launched a campaign to recruit more people with a passion for helping others for the “best job in the world” with a special Slimming World careers opportunity event planned at The Mecure White Hart Hotel, Salisbury on Saturday 5th March at 9.30am
Claire Wilkinson who manages a team of seven consultants who run 17 Slimming World groups in the area said, “We’re going through a period of growth. In 40 years millions of people have changed their lives with Slimming World’s brilliant combination of a hunger-busting eating plan, increased activity and weekly group support.
“Now, with obesity at an all-time high – 30 million adults (62%) in the UK are overweight or obese – and government predictions that 80% of men and 70% of women will be overweight or obese in the next decade – the demand for our unique warm and friendly approach has never been greater.
“At Slimming World we have the best eating plan in the world where members can, and do, lose weight without ever having to feel hungry. We have the best understanding of the psychology of slimmers and we choose consultants for their empathy, warmth and understanding.
“We have the best training in the business too. Every consultant who comes on board goes through an intensive programme and is awarded diplomas in aspects of nutrition and successfully running their own slimming business.”
Slimming World is looking for people who have lost weight themselves with the club, who can share their own weight-loss success to build a fabulous career.
Claire added, “Every Slimming World group helps members achieve long-term weight loss through healthy lifestyle changes. Food Optimising is a unique healthy eating plan which satisfies the biggest of appetites by encouraging people to fill up on unlimited amounts of satisfying foods and enjoy meals cooked healthily. Meals like curry and rice, lasagne, Sunday roasts and even fish and chips. Members love the fact that they aren’t restricted.
“Just as importantly, we provide support 52 weeks of the year and our members know from the minute they first walk through the door, often when their self-esteem is at its lowest, that they will never be judged, that their details are completely confidential and that they are with people who understand them.”
Slimming World consultants are all former members. The role is part-time, with the potential to earn £100-£400 a week for working 10-20 flexible hours, as a self-employed franchisee.
