Slimming World consultant from Northumberland meets Chatty Man Alan Carr
A Slimming World consultant from Northumberland recently celebrated success by meeting Alan Carr.
The chat show host and comedian co-hosted the annual Slimming World Awards with the organisation’s founder and chair Margaret Miles-Bramwell.
Margaret opened her first group in 1969 and over the last 50 years, Slimming World has become one of the nation’s favourite ways to lose weight, supporting almost one million slimmers.
Rachael Bewley, who runs a Slimming World group at Lindisfarne Adult Learning Centre, Alnwick, every Monday, and Amble Parish Hall, Morpeth, every Wednesday, was delighted to get a chance to meet Alan.
She said: “The members at our Alnwick group make me burst with pride, not only have they seen big changes on the scales, many have improved their health and completely changed their lives too.
“For many people, taking that first step into a Slimming World group takes a huge amount of courage.
“But they’re always certain of a warm welcome and introduction to our fabulously flexible eating plan which means you’re never hungry while you’re losing weight.
“I feel proud of the small part I play in supporting people to achieve their dreams and to celebrate alongside them when they do, so I was honoured to represent the Alnwick group at the Slimming World Awards.
“Alan was left in awe of the difference Slimming World makes to people’s lives too.”
Alan, who presented comedy chat show, Chatty Man, on Channel 4, and who met Rachael at the event, said consultants like her have helped change peoples’ lives.
He said: “I met so many people who had transformed their lives and it was clear how much the support they received from their ‘Slimming World family’ meant to them.
“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 consultants like Rachael and their group every week.
“I left the awards feeling so uplifted and positive, I wish I could’ve bottled that Slimming World feeling.”
