Middleton Guardian - - FRONT PAGE - JON MACPHERSON

ASLIMMING con­sul­tant got the chance to meet an X Fac­tor star to cel­e­brate the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s golden an­niver­sary.

Sue Woods, who runs a weekly group at The Old Boars Head, Mid­dle­ton, was de­lighted to meet Ry­lan Clark-Neal at the Slim­ming World Awards and said it was a ‘won­der­ful way to round off a great year’.

She said: “I couldn’t be prouder of my mem­bers. Not only have they lost fan­tas­tic amounts of weight through­out 2018 – with many of them hit­ting their tar­get weights – they’ve also im­proved their health, boosted their con­fi­dence and are head­ing into 2019 with new healthy habits that will stay with them for life.

“Ev­ery week I feel priv­i­leged to play even a small part in sup­port­ing peo­ple to­wards these achieve­ments and to cel- ebrate with them, so I felt es­pe­cially hon­oured to rep­re­sent my mem­bers.”

TV per­son­al­ity Ry­lan, who has pre­sented on This Morn­ing and Chan­nel 5’s Big Brother’s Lit­tle Brother, said he was ‘thrilled’ to meet Sue at the awards event, which was held at Birm­ing­ham’s In­ter­na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­tre.

He said: “I met so many peo­ple who had lost in­cred­i­ble amounts of weight and made a huge dif­fer­ence to their lives.

“While the sto­ries I heard were ob­vi­ously very per­sonal, the one thing they all had in com­mon was how much sup­port they re­ceived from their ‘Slim­ming World fam­ily’ and how so many of them were achiev­ing their dreams.

“Ev­ery one of them spoke pas­sion­ately about how they couldn’t have made those changes to eat more healthily and be­come more ac­tive with­out the

sup­port of their con­sul­tant and group ev­ery week, so peo­ple like Sue are clearly worth their weight in gold.”
