Local weight loss expert, Tracy King, is celebrating after being recognised for the exceptional work she does to support people in Ballyhaunis to achieve their dream weight. Tracy was one of around 100 high-achieving team developers invited to Slimming World’s Team Developer Thank You Day at the organisation’s head office in Alfreton, Derbyshire, UK.
Tracy is a slimming consultant for the Ballyhaunis Slimming World group and also one of the organisation's leading team developers, as well as managing her own group as a self-employed franchisee, she is doing a great job of managing other consultants in Mayo, Roscommon, and Sligo to ensure excellent service right across the area.
As part of the day, Tracy, who graduated from the Slimming World Academy in Jan 2013, was invited to discuss best practice and share her tips on delivering a first-class weight management service to ensure fantastic weight losses and members’ success. She also shared ideas for building and managing successful local teams. In the afternoon the guests were invited to take part in a workshop, hosted by Slimming World’s director of field operations, Lisa Salmon, and were treated to a healthy banquet in a pop-up marquee.
Tracy said: “It was honour to be invited to the special day at Slimming World HQ - when the event invite dropped through my letterbox I got goosebumps! The day itself was just so inspirational from start to finish. To have had the opportunity to meet and share ideas with other top-performing weight loss experts and managers was an experience I’ll never forget. I left the day absolutely brimming with tips and ideas, and there’s no doubt the insight will enable me to improve the support I give to other consultants in the area, so that anyone who attends Slimming World in Mayo, Roscommon, and Sligo, including the members who attend my Slimming World group each week, get the very best possible service and support to achieve their weight loss dreams.
“I know what it’s like to struggle with your weight, and having lost just over two stone as a Slimming World member myself after joining 2011, I also understand what a huge difference the right kind of support can make to your chances of achieving long-term success. There are so many fad diets around, so being able to tell people that they can lose weight without going hungry and while enjoying everyday foods - like pasta, rice, potatoes, fruit and vegetables, lean meat, poultry and fish, and they can find new ways to get active that don’t have to involve going to the gym or taking part in team sports, is a great thing.
“I feel so passionate about helping people to change their lives by learning new healthy habits, and to be able to keep excess weight off for life. Having the chance to get together with other high-achieving consultants from across the country to share ideas and experiences is yet another example of the superb support that we get as Slimming World franchisees. My job is flexible and rewarding, and although I’m self-employed I feel wholly supported. I’m so proud to be part of Slimming World – the UK’s and Ireland’s favourite weight loss company,” adds Tracy.
