Rutherglen Reformer - - Health Matters - Kenny Smith

Three Ruther­glen men are cel­e­brat­ing af­ter be­ing awarded the ti­tle of Man of the Year at their Slim­ming World groups.

Kevin Docherty goes to the Ruther­glen group which runs in Ruther­glen West and Ward­lawhill Parish Church on Tues­days at 10am, noon, 5.30pm and 7.30pm,

He joined Slim­ming World be­cause he was: “em­bar­rassed when he looked in the mir­ror.”

Since join­ing, Kevin has lost over four stone and is an in­spi­ra­tion to all men that at­tend group by mak­ing them feel welcome. He plays an ac­tive role in the so­cial team and em­braces his role as weigh per­son with en­thu­si­asm. He has less than a stone till he reaches his tar­get weight.

Kevin ben­e­fits from a more ac­tive lifestyle and said: “Even a fussy eater as my­self can lose weight by healthy means.”

The most re­cent mem­ber to join Slim­ming World is John Wal­laceWeir.

In the last nine weeks, he has lost 1.5 stone and is over­joyed at how easily the Slim­ming World plan fits into his daily life.

John has be­gun to in­tro­duce more ex­er­cise into his daily rou­tine and ac­tively en­cour­ages fam­ily mem­bers to join Slim­ming World.

He said: “I am no longer em­bar­rassed about my size and can now go into a shop and buy “reg­u­lar” size clothes now”

Another suc­cess Gal­lagher.

Di­ag­nosed with type one di­a­betes from his teens, Paul has been in­sulin de­pen­dant for most of his life.

Re­cently his weight bal­looned to a point where, strug­gling to get his in­sulin un­der con­trol, the med­i­cal pro­fes­sion in­di­cated that he would not see his 60th birth­day in nine years time, if he didn’t do some­thing about his weight.

In just over a year, Paul lost nearly four stone, and just as im­por­tantly, his daily dose of in­sulin has sta­bilised, which has ben­e­fit­ted his health dra­mat­i­cally.

Paul added: “Slim­ming World has made such a dif­fer­ence to my health. I feel and look bet­ter and can now walk with­out pain in my feet.”

Paul is an in­spi­ra­tion in group and shares his health ben­e­fits with ev­ery­one.
