Slimming World opened its doors in Newtownforbes on 14 June 2012 and in just 10 weeks it’s members have achieved a combined weight loss of an amazing 100 stone.
Newtownforbes consultant, Tammy Nicholas, who herself lost 5 stone with Slimming World last year said “I am so proud of what the group has achieved in such a short period of time. The individual and group weight losses each week are amazing, especially over the Summer months when there is so much going on, holidays, weddings and christenings. Following the Food Optimising Plan enables people to enjoy these special events and remain on track.”
The group celebrated this achievement by recognising their ‘Woman of the Year’. Each member has the opportunity to nominate someone from the group who inspires, motivates and encourages them on their weight loss journey.
There were two winners, one from each session. The winner of the 5.30pm session was Michelle Reilly from Bornacoola and the 7.30pm session winner was Julie Elarnauti from Newtownfores, both ladies are a real inspiration to the other group members. Tammy holds two Slimming World sessions every Thursday at Miranda Moran’s Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic, Newtownforbes at 5.30pm and 7.30pm. For information call 086 176 8210.
