GALA NIGHT

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sponsored Content - Jonathan Ged­des

A group of Ruther­glen slim­ming con­sul­tants showed that they had the magic touch re­cently.

They were at the Slim­ming World Awards in Birm­ing­ham, where they met TV pre­sen­ter and ma­gi­cian Stephen Mul­h­ern.

He was co-host­ing the event with the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s founder and chair­woman Mar­garet Miles-Bramwell OBE.

Kirsty Gib­son, who runs a group in Half­way, said: “We couldn’t be prouder of our mem­bers.

“They’ve lost fan­tas­tic amounts of weight through­out 2016, with many of them mak­ing their weight loss dreams come true by hit­ting their tar­get weight, im­prov­ing their health and con­fi­dence, and more.

“It’s so re­ward­ing to see peo­ple be­ing able to do things that they didn’t think pos­si­ble be­fore los­ing weight, whether that’s hav­ing more en­ergy and con­fi­dence, wear­ing smaller clothes, tak­ing up new hob­bies, re­duc­ing med­i­ca­tion or do­ing more with their fam­ily and friends.

“Every week we feel so lucky to play even a small part in peo­ple’s achieve­ments and we felt very hon­oured to rep­re­sent our Slim­ming World groups when we met Stephen.

“He was bowled over by the dif­fer­ence Slim­ming World makes to peo­ple and how it changes their lives, so meet­ing him has re-in­spired us and now we feel su­per mo­ti­vated to sup­port even more peo­ple in Ruther­glen to lead health­ier, hap­pier lives in 2017.”

Carol Downes, re­cently re­tired from her work as a con­sul­tant, but is still en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to join their lo­cal group and take pos­i­tive steps to­wards a health­ier 2017.

She said: “Lots of peo­ple will be mak­ing res­o­lu­tions to lose weight and im­prove their health this New Year.

“I truly be­lieve that join­ing a lo­cal Slim­ming World group is the best way for peo­ple to lose weight and learn new habits.
