Slimmers come back together

Slimmers from Glasgow's east end are making a ‘comeback’ as their Slimming World group fully reopens. Consultants are ecstatic to help members lose weight and improve their health. Slimming World has been supporting members virtually but with the current easing of restrictions in many areas, real-life groups are back to full set up. Ann Marie Nairn, Team Developer for Glasgow East, says, “We are delighted to finally be back together with our members! We are so proud of how our members have been there for each other through these difficult months and continued to lose weight and get more active. There’s nothing quite like the magic of our real-life groups, though, and research of our members during lockdown has shown that while our members have loved attending their virtual groups they’ve missed the motivational power and accountability of meeting in person each week.”

Slimming world are putting measures in place to ensure groups comply fully with government and local guidance so that members can return safely to their much-loved Slimming World groups.

Ann Marie says, “As well as looking forward to ‘that feeling’ of being back together with our existing Slimming World members, we can’t wait to welcome new members too. Obesity is a huge issue in the news at the moment with evidence showing that carrying extra weight makes it harder for the body to fight COVID-19, and the Government announcing brand-new plans to tackle obesity across the UK – which Slimming World are very proud to be part of. We know many people’s routines were turned upside down by lockdown and lots of us have been feeling more worried or anxious than usual, all of which can have an impact on making healthy choices.”

For anyone who’s worrying about their weight or health, Slimming World offers a non-judgemental space and a very warm welcome.

Losing weight isn’t about going hungry. Their eating plans are easy, delicious, and super generous. Anne Marie told us, “Our groups are hubs for sharing ideas and recipes. Through weekly sessions, members have discovered how to identify the potential pitfalls that have prevented them from reaching their weight-loss goals in the past. The new healthy habits you’ll discover will soon become habits of a lifetime.”

Ann Marie also runs the Shettleston And Baillieston Slimming World groups. For more information visit or contact Ann Marie on 07799472489
