X Factor treat for slimmer Sue
ASLIMMING consultant got the chance to meet an X Factor star to mark the organisation’s golden anniversary.
Sue Woods, who runs a weekly group at New Town Social Club, Castleton, 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 she could not be prouder of her members.
Sue said: “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.”
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.”
