Super slimmers in Lisburn are helping Slimmng World consultant Mary-Claire Crozier celebrate three years of success.
Thanks to her successful weekly Slimming World classes which she first began in August 2011 more and more people are now pounds and stones lighter.
She first began classes in August 2011 at Laurelhill Community College and has now moved more recently to Lisburn City Church in Graham Gardens.
Mary-Claire believes in offering a unique service to as many members as possible.
So she has now four full sessions running every week to facilitate over 200 members, who attend the Lisburn groups.
By following the Slimming World’s Food Optimising eating plan, which was created by the organisation’s team of expert nutritionists, people are encouraged to fill up on satisfying foods such as pasta, rice, potatoes, lean meat and fish, pulses and fruit and vegetable in order to lose weight and get healthy.
Mary-Claire explained: “Filling up on lots of satisfying foods means you are never hungry so I’ve never felt as though I was on a diet.
“Before I joined Slimming World I thought losing weight meant going to the gym and counting calories.
“But now I know it’s about making healthier choices about food and becoming a bit more active.
“Reaching this milestone as a group just proves the huge change that we’ve all made to our lives.
“Some people who’ve lost big amounts of weight have probably even saved their lives.
“It’s brilliant to celebrate together as well because that’s how we’ve been losing weight – together.
“Every week we support and encourage each other and share tips and recipes, and on top of that we all have a lot of fun.”
One of the local people who attends Mary-Claire’s class and has been successful in losing weight with Slimming World, thanked her for all the help and support she has given to everyone who attends the Lisburn groups.
“The support and inspiration we get from our Consultant Mary-Claire has also been integral to our success,” she said.
“Because she’s lost weight herself, she understands the ups and downs of slimming and can offer us help and advice based on her own experience, without her I don’t think we’d have achieved nearly as much.”
Mary-Claire’s group is held at Lisburn City Church, Graham Gardens every Monday between 9.30am to 11.30am,5.30pm and at 7.30pm.
