A WEIGHT loss expert from Ormskirk has recently celebrated her 20th anniversary as a Slimming World Consultant.
Tina Whewell, who runs the Wednesday groups at the Fiveways, is one of the national slimming club’s top performing “Gold” Consultants.
The prestigious accolade is given to Slimming World Consultants who consistently have 100 or more members in their groups.
It represents the highest level of service in slimming and places Tina in the top 5% of the organisation’s 3,500 Consultants, meaning Ormskirk is home to some of the best slimming support in the UK.
Tina said: "I absolutely love my work and running my own successful groups. Having struggled with my own weight, I’m passionate about helping people to transform their lives by losing weight.
“I’m so proud of all members. They’re the ones who make my groups the success that they are, with their fabulous commitment and the wonderful support they give each other every week. They make the group a fun, buzzy place to be and I can safely say I always look forward to going to work.
“I truly believe I have the best job in the world.
“We have had some amazing success over the last 20 years including Andy Heyes, who has lost an incredible 10st 6lb since January this year.
“It’s a fabulous feeling knowing you’re making such a difference to peoples lives.
“And with almost 30m people in the UK now over weight, it’s never been more important that overweight people get caring and compassionate support to make changes to lead healthier lives."
To join Tina’s group, which is held every Wednesday at 9.30 & 11.30 am and 5.30 & 7.30pm at the Fiveways, give Tina a call on 07855097585.
