Sor­sha is set to share her slim­ming se­crets

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

ASLIMMER who changed her life by los­ing 3 stone is us­ing her suc­cess to shape a whole new ca­reer help­ing other peo­ple change their lives and achieve their weight loss dreams too. Sor­sha joined her lo­cal Slim­ming World group in Charvil 18 months ago and dropped from a size 16 to a size 10. Now, she has trained as a Con­sul­tant for Slim­ming World, the UK’s largest group-based weight loss or­gan­i­sa­tion, at their na­tional train­ing academy in Der­byshire. Mem­bers at the group are get­ting ready to wel­come Sor­sha as their new Con­sul­tant when she takes over the group on Wed­nes­day 10th Oc­to­ber. The lat­est Gov­ern­ment fig­ures re­veal that around one in four adults are obese and it is es­ti­mated that, by 2034, this will in­crease to one in three. Obe­sity is be­com­ing such a huge con­cern across the UK. “When I first joined Slim­ming World, I never dreamed that I would end up help­ing other peo­ple to lose weight but now I just can’t wait to get started. Af­ter los­ing 3 stone and com­plet­ing my train­ing, it’s a priv­i­lege for me to be able to pass on the ex­pe­ri­ence, in­sight and un­der­stand­ing that helped me, so that I can give my mem­bers the sup­port they need. “Sup­port is re­ally the most im­por­tant thing. It all starts with feel­ing that you’re not alone. “I couldn’t have lost 3 stone with­out the weekly help, en­cour­age­ment and un­der­stand­ing of my own Con­sul­tant and group. “As some­one who has lost weight my­self I know the chal­lenges peo­ple can face, which is why, along with the group, I will be there to sup­port ev­ery one of my mem­bers all the way to their cho­sen tar­get weight. “Set­ting tar­gets, shar­ing recipes and other ideas, and work­ing to­gether as a group to over­come chal­lenges and cel­e­brate suc­cess is so im­por­tant to a suc­cess­ful jour­ney. That’s why there’ll be tons of sup­port, en­cour­age­ment and fun. “Like a lot of slim­mers, I had tried to lose weight so many times be­fore by fol­low­ing nu­mer­ous di­ets but they were never sus­tain­able be­cause I’d al­ways get tired of re­strict­ing what I ate. “With Slim­ming World I never felt like I was on a diet. The eat­ing plan en­cour­ages you to eat lots of tasty, fill­ing foods like pasta, rice, po­ta­toes and lean meat and fish, you are never hun­gry and no foods are banned so there’s no de­pri­va­tion. I couldn’t be­lieve I’d found a way to lose weight and never feel hun­gry! “Slim­ming World isn’t just about chang­ing what you eat. Be­com­ing more ac­tive is im­por­tant too. Our Body Magic pro­gramme takes the threat out of ac­tiv­ity by show­ing peo­ple, many of whom have un­pleas­ant ex­pe­ri­ences, how they can build ac­tiv­ity into their daily rou­tine with­out hav­ing to take up tra­di­tional forms of ex­er­cise like go­ing to the gym or run­ning. Ev­ery­thing counts from walk­ing to gar­den­ing to wash­ing the car. I love tak­ing my dogs for a walk, to get my Body Magic!” Like Sor­sha, Slim­ming World Con­sul­tants are all for­mer mem­bers who have lost weight them­selves. There are cur­rently around 4,000 Slim­ming World Con­sul­tants across the UK and Ire­land run­ning 15,000 groups. Con­sul­tants re­ceive train­ing in Slim­ming World’s healthy eat­ing and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity pro­grammes and learn how to use group sup­port to em­power mem­bers to take con­trol of their own weight loss jour­ney.

Sor­sha’s Slim­ming World group will be held at Charvil Pav­il­ion, East park drive ev­ery Wed­nes­day at 5.30pm or 7.30pm from 10th Oc­to­ber.
