Trio are honoured
Man of the Year titles for super slimmers
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.
