The virtual world has taken over Slimming World classes with groups cropping up all over the Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket areas thanks to social media and the internet.
Consultants have been helping thousands of members from one losing 12 stone to another having reduced medication for diabetes.
A woman lost nine stone to enable a hip replacement and countless lives have been touched through eating plans and the power of weekly group support.
Slimming World groups are being rebuilt piece by piece where members can continue to lose weight, create a healthier approach to cooking and learn ways to build in daily activity and exercise … even if no hugging is possible.
Kelly Cooper, consultant and team developer from Bury St Edmunds said: “I have to be real honest, my life crumbled when I was enforced to close my groups, I’ve been a consultant for six years and never have I shut my support to my members.
“I really didn’t know what to do. The groups really are a great support network and I am so delighted that through the power of the this new modern tech world we live in, that there is a way to offer the same Slimming World love, support and care to every single person who is struggling with the guilt and shame of their weight.”
If you are a current member or looking to join in one of the groups call Kelly on 07792 603204 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for local “virtual” groups and times which included reduced fees.
