Slimming World Consultants Lisa Walker and Lorraine Crocker meet singer and presenter Rylan Clark-Neal
As Slimming World enters its 50th year, two Consultants from Oldham are celebrating half a century of success for the organisation by meeting TV personality and presenter Rylan Clark-Neal.
Rylan, who shot to fame after appearing on hit show The X-Factor, co-hosted 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 last 50 years the business has grown to become the UK's leading group-based weight-management organisation, today supporting nearly one million slimmers.
Lorraine Crocker, who runs a group at the Oldham Academy North, Royton every Saturday, said: “2018 has been a brilliant year for Slimming World.
"We’ve launched our Slim for Life plan to give even more support to our target members, and won awards for both our magazine and food range.
"We’re hoping our Golden Year will be even more successful and we have a string of exciting activities planned to celebrate our 50th birthday in style, including the launch of brand-new websites and apps, golden events and special publications.
“I truly believe that joining a local Slimming World group is the best way for people to lose weight, learn new habits and make long-term healthy changes.
"Thanks to our eating plan they’ll see big results on the scales without ever having to feel hungry or deprived, and at our Oldham groups they’ll discover a whole world of support and advice that’s sure to help them achieve their targets – and have a lot of fun along the way too! I’d love for anyone who wants to make a change to join us - I promise they won’t look back!”
Lisa Walker, who runs a Slimming World group at St. Matthews RC High School in Moston every Wednesday and Saturday, was delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to Rylan and said meeting the TV host was a wonderful way to round off a great year at Slimming World.
She said: “I couldn’t be prouder of the members of the Oldham groups.
"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.”
