Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

AN EAST­COTE slim­mer who shed pounds will now be­come a con­sul­tant to help oth­ers with their weight loss goals.

Sarah Pater­son gained the con­fi­dence to re­launch her own group af­ter los­ing 1st 13lbs with a lo­cal Slim­ming World.

She dropped from a dress size 14 to a size 8-10 and is “ex­cited” to help oth­ers with their diet plans.

Sarah ini­tially put on weight in 2004 while be­ing ill with M.E (Myal­gic En­cephalopa­thy) with the lack of energy to move around, she took to com­fort eat­ing to make her feel bet­ter.

Once she was feel­ing bet­ter, her mother had sug­gested they both joined Slim­ming World as her mother had been be­fore and lost weight suc­cess­fully.

Sarah is a veg­e­tar­ian and felt she could still have a var­ied diet, from chips, crust­less quiche, veg­e­tar­ian lasagne, fruit, yogurt, rice, salad, stuffed pep­pers, plus daily treats such as cho­co­late or crisps.

She said: “I am so pas­sion­ate about be­ing able to help peo­ple lose weight and never go­ing hun­gry. I know how hard it is to walk into a slim­ming group, so I want to let peo­ple know they will be wel­comed into a friendly, lov­ing, car­ing and non judge­men­tal group from the mo­ment they walk through the door.

“I have tried other di­ets in be­tween af­ter go­ing on in­clu­sion hol­i­days but al­ways end up back at Slim­ming World af­ter try­ing other di­ets be­cause it works long term with never go­ing hun­gry.”

Sarah will be re­launch­ing the East­cote Bri­tish Le­gion group on Wed­nes­day at 10am on 2 Septem­ber 2015. To find out more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Sarah on 07721025502 or visit w w w. s l i m m i n g w o r l d . com.
