A slimmer who has passed on her knowledge and experience to help others shift the pounds has launched a new group, less than a year since starting her first.
Monica Stewart took over the Widdrington Slimming World group, which takes place on Wednesday evenings, in July last year.
And now she is opening another in Ashington to help more people lose weight.
Monica lost two stone on the plan, which advocates healthy eating, and loved it so much that she decided to become a consultant to help others do the same.
Her Widdrington group regularly has 80 members and she hopes the Ashington group, which will run on Tuesday evenings at the YMCA, will also do well.
Monica said: “Like a lot of slimmers, I had tried to lose weight so many times before by following numerous diets, but they were never sustainable because I’d always get tired of restricting what I ate.
“I was going through a particularly bad time in my life when I gained weight, and it was a vicious circle, because my weight gain was also part of why I was so down and miserable.
“I decided on return from a break away, after seeing a photo of myself, that I had to do something about it.”
“My weight loss has completely changed my life. I feel so much healthier and more confident. I’ve found Slimming World works well for my whole family.”
The group will run at 7.30pm each Tuesday. Contact Monica on 07912 056989 for more information.
