It takes two! Slimming couple in Baillieston lose 4st to win award!

Updated: Sep 2, 2019


A mother and daughter from Baillieston who have turned their lives around by losing over 4st between them have bagged a top slimming award.


The Baillieston Slimming World group celebrated Margaret Marshall and Lisa Marshall’s achievements as part of Slimming World’s Couple of the Year 2019 competition. Margaret and Lisa believe supporting one another on their weight-loss journeys has been key to their success.


Margaret, who has lost 3st, said: “When we first joined Slimming World we couldn’t believe how much food we could eat and still lose weight. Making small changes to the way we cooked our meals meant we could still enjoy all of our favourites like curries.

“We love sharing our new recipes with family and friends too – they taste so great and people are always surprised to learn they’re good for them. As we’ve lost weight we’ve enjoyed being more active as well, which means we do more together like running at Strathclyde Park.”


It was the couple’s fellow slimmers who voted for them to represent the Baillieston Slimming World group in the Couple of the Year 2019.


Lisa who is 1st 2lbs lighter since joining Slimming World, said: “We’re lucky because as well as the support we had from each other, the rest of the group have also been there for us. Every week in our group we swap recipes and if we’ve ever struggled there has always been someone ready to suggest a new idea or remind us why we started this journey. I don’t think we could have achieved all we have without the support of our Consultant Ann Marie and the rest of the Baillieston group.”


Ann Marie Nairn who runs the Baillieston and Shettleston Slimming World groups, said: “Margaret and Lisa are living proof that slimmers are more successful when they lose weight together and get support and motivation from others. Seeing Margaret and Lisa’s weight come down week after week has been a joy. They’re a real inspiration to the rest of the group, including me.”
