ASLIMMING WORLD, con­sul­tant from Orm­skirk marked the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s 50th an­niver­sary by meet­ing TV per­son­al­ity and pre­sen­ter Ry­lan Clark-Neal.

Ry­lan, who rose to fame af­ter ap­pear­ing on The X-Fac­tor, co­hosted the an­nual Slim­ming World Awards with the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s founder and chair Mar­garet Miles-Bramwell OBE.

Mar­garet opened her first Slim­ming World group in 1969 and over the past 50 years the busi­ness has grown to be­come the UK’s lead­ing group-based weight-man­age­ment or­gan­i­sa­tion, sup­port­ing nearly one mil­lion slim­mers.

Sarah Salka, who runs a Slim­ming World group at Dig­moor Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, Skelmers­dale, ev­ery Thurs­day, was de­lighted to get a chance to meet Ry­lan.

She said meet­ing him was a won­der­ful way to round off a great year at Slim­ming World, as well as a bril­liant way to start 2019 – Slim­ming World’s Golden Year.

She added: “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.

“Watch­ing peo­ple change be­fore my eyes and start be­ing able to do things that they didn’t think pos­si­ble be­fore los­ing weight ab­so­lutely amazes me.

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

Ry­lan said he was thrilled to meet Sarah at the event, 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 Sarah are clearly worth their weight in gold.”

Sarah holds ses­sion at Dig­moor Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, Skelmers­dale ev­ery Thurs­day.
