PEOPLE in Lisburn can look forward to a healthier, happier New Year with the help of a local slimming expert.
This January Mary-Claire, who runs a Slimming World group in the Red Cross Hall on the Pond Park Road, is delighted to reveal a brand new package for slimmers, the Ultimate Slimming Guide for 2013. The package was created to get slimmers off to a flying start after research by Slimming World, the UK’s largest weight-loss organisation, revealed that a good first week weight loss as well as regular attendance at group were the factors most likely to lead to long-term weight loss success.
“Slimming World has been helping people to lose weight for more than 43 years so we’ve learned a thing or two about supporting slimmers to achieve their dreams, including a deep understanding of the emotional as well as the practical aspects of losing weight,” she explained. “If anyone in Lisburn is pledging to slim down and become more active in 2013, Slimming World is the place to be to make sure their dreams turn into a reality.
“This year we’ve created a brand new pack for members that includes all of our very best advice – all based on the latest research as well as our decades of experience. It combines top tips for a fabulous first week weight loss, simple shopping advice, and small swaps that will make a big difference to your waistline and help you to form healthy habits that will last a lifetime, all as well as introducing members to Slimming World’s healthy eating plan, Food Optimising. Most people who embark on New Year diets fail within days or weeks because they follow plans that are too restrictive and leave them feeling hungry or deprived so they’re impossible to keep up. But Slimming World’s Food Optimising plan isn’t a diet and you don’t have to count and measure everything you eat. Instead by satisfying your appetite on everyday foods like fruit and veg, pasta, rice, potatoes, lean meat and fish, which are filling yet naturally low in calories, it’s possible to lose weight without ever having to go hungry or feel deprived.”
This January every new member will receive a copy of the Ultimate Slimming Guide for free when they join their local group. Combined with the support of the group, this slimming ‘bible’ will give everyone who walks through the doors the very best possible change of a great first week weight loss meaning they’re more likely to achieve their weight-loss target, according to Slimming World’s research. And the new guide isn’t the only reason Mary-Claire believes January 2013 is a great time to start slimming. This January Slimming World is also launching its new members’ mobile website, Lifeline-on-the-go, which is free of charge to members. The new site enables slimmers to access information and inspirational features from their smartphones 24/7. As well as this package, new members will get the support of highly-trained Consultant Mary-Claire: “I’ve lost weight with Slimming World myself so I know exactly what it feels like, from feeling nervous about walking into the group on that first day through to the joy of reaching your weight-loss target. Everyone in the group is there for the same reason – to lose weight and become happier and healthier – and each week we help and support each other by sharing advice, ideas, tips, recipes and more. I’m so sure that slimmers in Lisburn will be successful that anyone who doesn’t lose weight in the first four weeks, can have their money back.”
