Less Leads to More – at Shaftesbury Slimming World

Simming World 1In January 2016 Shaftesbury welcomed 80  brand new members to the Slimming world groups held there. 11 months on and 50 ladies and gentleman from the groups have reached their PAT; personal achievement target. PAT is chosen by the individuals themselves and once it’s achieved the membership to Slimming World becomes free for life!

Pictured are some of our winners that attend either the Tuesday evening 5.30pm or 7.30pm sessions or Friday 9.30am session at The Royal Chase Hotel Shaftesbury.  Amongst them are  Jennifer Matthews, Jemma Wellstead, Susan Neal, Heather Andrews, Tracey Park, Maureen Stranger, Celia Cundy and Audrey O’Donnell who is also a Diamond target member who has maintained her dream weight for more then 1 year.

Jennifer Matthews says the following about her journey to target. “Joining Slimming World has changed my life in so many ways.  Firstly  I’m so much healthier. I no longer take tablets for high blood pressure and high cholesterol, that is such a good thing and my GP is well impressed with me.  I had a hip replacement operation in June this year and my recovery has been amazing.  That’s because I have been able to get out and walk every day and losing nearly 3 stone has helped me to do that. I have gone down 3 dress sizes which gives me a much better choice of clothes and also has given me so much more confidence.  Going to group each week gave me the support I needed to keep going and not giving up on myself.  We are all there for the same reason, we want to lose weight, so it really makes sense to be with people who have the same goal as you.  Of course none of us could do this without the support of Charlene, our consultant .  She’s always there when you need advice and is very supportive.  Last but not least, I have made so many new friends  who I know will be life long friends.  I love Friday mornings, it’s a big part of my social life which I look forward to every week”.

Charlene the consultant for the groups says  “Groups have been so successful in the year of 2016 that we have had to change venue to bigger premises and introduce a brand new session which opens Friday 6th January at 11.30am. The Royal Chase Hotel also offer the members of the groups, a discounted swim on the group days. A token can be received from the groups. My aim is to help and support each person that walks into my groups to their chosen PAT dream weight and with these fabulous target members in group each week as well as all the other members too together we can make your weight loss dreams come true too.”
