Slimming from your living room

A change of view for local slimmers as Slimming World groups go virtual to help people with their health and weight loss during the lockdown.

Local Slimming World consultants are making sure all the weight loss successes their members have achieved are not negatively impacted during the coronavirus pandemic, setting up virtual sessions to continue supporting members and to be able to welcome new members as well.

Slimming World’s unique group sessions are the heart of their success, supporting members to Food Optimise and lose weight beautifully.  With our healthy Food Optimising eating plan there’s no food that’s off limits and members can fill up on real food – like pasta, rice and potatoes.  Through picking up ideas in group there’s no need to ever go hungry.

Rebecca Martin, Consultant and Team Developer for East Swindon says “We were all shaken when we first had to close our doors.  If anything, this is the time our members need that support even more and we all felt helpless!  With health such a priority for everyone, we wanted to help our members to stay in control of healthy new lifestyle habits, when it might not be as easy as it is under normal circumstances.  We know how important the support is from Consultants and other members in group, which is why we’ve worked so hard to develop the virtual groups to provide everything you would get in a physical group.  It’s a real feeling of community with so much fun and positivity each week – we truly are a family!”

“Members can still access that amazing weekly support, but now from the comfort of their own home.  The new package uses video conferencing to meet weekly for support, ideas and inspiration.  It’s about supporting each other to make healthier choices, stay active indoors and keep motivation high in these challenging times, and just as importantly to have some fun!”

“In virtual groups members are sharing their strategies for staying on track, as well as working together to overcome common challenges we’re all facing during lockdown.  The power of the group is incredible and our members are loving it.  They are also doing incredibly well - continuing to lose weight and achieve amazing results – though it’s definitely not easy.”

For extra help during the current situation the membership fees have been discounted for all members.  Groups are running at various times across the week with contact details for your local groups available or contact Rebecca Martin on 07816 281940 to help find a local group that suits.
