A slimmer who transformed her life by losing seven and a half stone is using her success to shape a whole new career helping other people change their lives and achieve their weight loss dreams.
Anna Plews joined a Slimming World group in York in 2015 and in just over a year dropped from a size 22 to 12.
She has now trained as a consultant for Slimming World and is holding sessions in Norton.
Anna’s Slimming World group will be running at The Indoor Bowls Centre, Bowling Lane, Scarborough Road, every Tuesday at 3pm, 5pm and 7pm.
Anna said: “Obesity is becoming such a huge issue across the UK. When I first joined Slimming World as a member I never dreamed that I would end up helping other people to lose weight but now I just can’t wait to get started.
“After losing seven and a half stone and completing my training, it’s a privilege for me to be able to pass on the experience, insight and understanding that helped me, so that I can give my members the support they need to get to target.
“Support is really the most important thing. It all starts with the feeling that you’re not alone.
“I couldn’t have my weight without the weekly help, encouragement and understanding of my own consultant and group.
“As someone who has lost weight myself I know the challenges people can face, which is why, along with the group, I will be there to support every one of my members all the way to their chosen target weight.”
Shirley Sowersby, who helps cover the Norton groups and manages Anna as a Team Developer, said: “Slimming World consultants are chosen for their positive outlook and because they genuinely care about the health and happiness of others.
“With Anna’s experience of being a successful Slimming World member and her warm personality and great sense of humour I just know that she’ll be an amazing support to members, cheering them all the way to their target weight.”
