A woman who achieved weight loss success with Slimming World and then became a consultant is starting a new group this Saturday.

Wendy Thompson joined her local group in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea two years ago and dropped from 17 stone 2.5lb to 12 stone 9lb.

After going through the training process and launching Tuesday groups at Newbiggin Maritime Centre, 5.30pm and 7.30pm start times, in May last year, she wanted to help more people achieve their weight loss dream.

Therefore, she will be running another group at the same venue on Saturday mornings – sessions will start at 8.30am.

Wendy said: “When I first joined Slimming World as a member, I never dreamed that I would end up helping other people to lose weight.

“I couldn’t have lost four-and-a-half stone 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.

“When I was looking for a job that was well paid, flexible and could fit around my life, launching my own Slimming World groups was an ideal option and I’m looking forward to starting the Saturday group.”
