Debbie set to share slimming secrets

A slimmer who transformed her life by losing 3 stone is using her success to shape a whole new career helping other people change their lives and achieve their weight loss dreams too.
Debbie joined her local Slimming World group in Cheltenham and fell in love with the group straight away. “I remember clearly walking through those doors for the very first time. I was so nervous, and I was worried what people would think, as well as what to do and where to go once I got there. However, there was no need to worry as I had a really friendly welcome from the consultant as soon as I arrived.”
Now Debbie has trained as a Consultant for Slimming World, the UK’s largest group-based weight loss organisation, at their national training academy in Derbyshire. Members at the Friday morning group at Warden Hill United Reformed Church can’t wait to welcome Debbie as their new Consultant when she takes over the group this January.
The latest government figures reveal that around one in four adults are obese and it is estimated that, by 2034, this will increase to one in three. 56.5% of Cheltenham’s population is now overweight or obese, and Debbie says her new role has never been more important.
She said: “Obesity is becoming such a huge issue across the UK. When I first joined Slimming World as a member, I never dreamed that I would end up helping other people to lose weight, but now I just can’t wait to get started. After losing 3st and completing my training, it’s a privilege for me to be able to pass on the experience, insight and understanding that helped me, so that I can give my members the support they need to get to target.
“Support is really the most important thing. It all starts with feeling that you’re not alone. I couldn’t have lost my weight and kept it off without the weekly help, encouragement and understanding of my own Consultant and group. As someone who has lost weight myself I know the challenges people can face, which is why, along with the group, I will be there to support every one of my members all the way to their dream weight. Setting targets, sharing recipes and other ideas, and working together as a group to overcome challenges and celebrate success is so important to a successful journey. That’s why, at my Slimming World group, there’ll be tons of support, encouragement and fun.
“Like a lot of slimmers, I had tried to lose weight so many times before by following numerous diets but they were never sustainable because I’d always get tired of restricting what I ate. I thought I was destined to struggle with my weight for the rest of my life, but when I came to Slimming World it was different. I never felt like I was on a diet. The eating plan encourages you to eat lots of tasty, filling foods like pasta, rice, potatoes and lean meat and fish, you are never hungry and no foods are banned so there’s no deprivation. I couldn’t believe I’d found a way to lose weight without starving myself. I love a fried breakfast replacing cooking oils with low calorie spray.”
