Slimming World’s research, with its 1.1 million members, highlights that being part of a group is key to slimming success.
Local Slimming World consultants understand all the reasons why - it is about being in a group of like-minded people, who support and motivate each other in their weight loss journeys, guided by a Slimming World consultant who has been trained to help members develop strategies to make changes that stick.
This is why local Slimming World consultants are especially excited, in line with government guidelines, to return to offering full group support from September 20.
“Members in our groups, share ideas, experiences, inspiration and laughter and develop tactics to overcome old habits. Slimming World’s study of our 1.1 million members show the value of losing weight as part of a group. Members inspire each other and support each other to develop strategies to form healthy new habits around food and activity that they can maintain for life,” Pauline, who runs the groups in St. Kieran’s Community Centre, said.
“Members who attend their weekly Slimming World groups regularly, go on to have 14 percent more weight loss. Also, our research show that 50 percent of members have become more active since joining Slimming World and almost half have encouraged their families to be more active too,” Sinead, who runs the groups in The Shamrock Lodge Hotel, asserted.
“In a recent poll, Slimming World members reported forming new healthy relationships with food and over three quarters of members (76 percent ) said that they always feel satisfied or full when following Slimming World’s flexible, healthy eating plan which is based on the filling quality of foods,” Carol, who runs the groups in Ballybay Hall, Kiltoom, continued.
“Being part of a Slimming World group is the power beneath the wings for many of our members. Slimming World groups are warm and friendly environments, where members are treated with respect, understanding and kindness,” Caroline, who runs the groups in The Shearwater Hotel, Ballinasloe, concluded.
