The Slimming World team in Cheltenham have over 30 years of experience between them in helping their members to slim down in the local area. All of our local consultants receive training in weight management, as well as sophisticated behaviour-change techniques. This training draws on Slimming World's 50-plus years of experience of helping members to lose weight. Slimming World’s healthy eating plan and activity programme - Food Optimising and Body Magic - combined with a highly developed support group system based on care and compassion, helps members to make lifestyle changes. Consultant training focuses on encouraging and empowering members to make these changes in a supportive, warm and friendly group environment. Slimming World have also supported our local team to continue running their groups virtually during the lockdowns, so that we could still support our members to lose weight and stay healthy. This was so important to be able to do, especially with the concerns surrounding the links between obesity and Covid-19.
I run three groups in Bishops Cleeve, the first of which I opened in April 2016 after feeling inspired to give it a go whilst attending my own group as a member. I absolutely love it and when I took redundancy from my full time bank job that same year, Slimming World became my focus and provides an excellent work/ life balance.
I love helping people, reassuring them when things aren't going so well, encouraging and guiding them to success and celebrating those successes with them - which includes taking three of my members to the regional finals for Slimming World's Woman of the Year.
I live in Bishops Cleeve with my husband Scott and 16yr-old daughter Kitty. My son Cameron and his wife Lucy are expecting their first baby this year so after boring my members rigid with a wedding countdown, I've moved onto to how many weeks left till I become a Nana!
I love a box-set and crafting, which I really got into during lockdown. I'm hoping to expand my crafting into baby booties this year and plan to get more active, to see more of what our beautiful county has to offer.
I run three groups in the Up Hatherley and Warden Hill areas of Cheltenham.
I became a Consultant five years ago after losing 3st 7lb as a member and loving being able to eat and enjoy all the meals I love with Slimming World - even burger and chips! Just by making small changes I was able to lose weight without ever needing to go hungry. Meals that can be prepared quickly and easily are my go-to, so I love that I can make dinner in a flash. This was a revelation to a take-away fan who'd struggled with her weight since a teenager!
I became a Consultant because I wanted others who struggled to see how easy and liberating Food Optimising is, and provide the help of the group experience,which was so important to me in my own journey.
I love seeing the way members look out for each other, my proudest moments are seeing the smiles on my wonderful members faces as they achieve their weight losses.
I was always a swimmer, and whenever possible I'm found in a lake, river or the sea, even part of an English Channel relay team in 2017. I've now added running, cycling and an occasional triathlon to my activities. The highlights are London Marathon in 2019 (a great way to celebrate turning 50), and running almost 70 miles in just over 24 hours around the Isle of Wight coast. Not bad for someone who hated PE at school!
I love the confidence I now have to give things a go, that I wasn't brave enough to before Slimming World.
I run two groups in Cheltenham, in the St Marks and St Peters area. I became a consultant three-and-a-half years ago after losing six stone, and became Team Developer for Cheltenham and Tewkesbury two years ago.
I became a Consultant because I wanted to help others live a happy and healthy lifestyle. I love seeing my members support each other in group every week, and I love seeing my members build their confidence as they achieve their goals.
My proudest moments as a Consultant has to be giving out 4 Target awards to members who reached their goal weight during the first lockdown - being able to support them to continue reaching for that goal during such difficult times was just amazing.
I live with my partner in Cheltenham, and in my spare time I enjoy walking, yoga, cooking, reading, watching films, cross stitch and I'm trying to learn to knit. Slimming World has changed my life entirely - I am healthier after losing weight, and I have a fantastic career where I can support my members on their own weight-loss journey, as well as support my team to run their own successful businesses.
I run three groups in Prestbury, Charlton Kings and Hatherley in Cheltenham. After trying most diets and failing miserably I decided to give Slimming World a try after a friend lost 3st.
After losing over 20st as a family I wanted to help others know that by eating everyday foods and by adapting their favourite recipes slightly to the Slimming World way they too could achieve their weight-loss goals and dreams.
Seeing members blossom as they lose weight, coming off medication that they have taken for years, having that operation they thought they would never have due to being overweight and seeing those members conceive naturally after trying for a baby for so long is the best feeling ever.
I run three groups in Swindon Village and in the St Marks area of Cheltenham. I became a Consultant five years ago after losing four-and-a-half stone with Slimming World. After having tried numerous diets in the past, Slimming World worked for me as I lost the weight without ever needing to go hungry. I loved that I could still enjoy the occasional chocolate treat!
As a Consultant, I love seeing people smile when they achieve their goals each week, and I love being able to present them with their weight loss awards in group! My proudest moment as a consultant has to be seeing members being able to come off medication for conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure.
I live with my husband and daughter in Cheltenham, and we love going for long walks as a family. We love going away on holiday together as well. Slimming World has not only helped me to lose weight but has given me a fantastic work/life balance where I can enjoy time with my family- and be happy to be in all the holiday photos!
