A quartet of Slimming World consultants from the district were chuffed to rub shoulders with singer and TV presenter Peter Andre recently.
Georgie Grinling and Sharon Wright, who run weekly Slimming World groups in Market Harborough, and Suzanne Taylor and Mandy Knapp, who run classes in Lutterworth, say they were thrilled to “cuddle up” to Peter when he co-hosted the annual Slimming World Awards with the organisation’s chairman and founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell.
The event was held at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre just before Christmas.
Suzanne said meeting the Mysterious Girl singer was “a wonderful way to round off what’s been a great 12 months”.
She added: “I’m so proud of all of our members.
“They lost fantastic amounts of weight in 2014, with many reaching their target weights and improving their health substantially.
“It’s so rewarding to see people achieve things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight, whether that’s wearing smaller-sized clothes, taking up new hobbies, reducing medication or being able to do more with their family and friends.
“Meeting Peter was a real treat – he was such a nice guy.”
Georgie said she hopes more people will join her class and benefit from making healthy lifestyle changes.
She added: “Everyone will be sure of a fab start with Slimming World and even if people have struggled to stick to weightloss plans in the past, I know we can help them to make a change for life this time around.”
Sharon said: “We truly believe joining Slimming World is the best way for people to lose weight this January.
“Getting off to a great start is really important when embarking on a slimming plan; seeing results on the scales and feeling lighter and brighter will motivate people to keep going and achieve their goals.”
Mandy Knapp, a Slimming World manager from Lutterworth, said: “Meeting Peter was a great way to celebrate the year.
“Now I feel powered up and I can’t wait to help members hold on to all of the fabulous changes they’ve made and support even more people to become happier and healthier in 2015.”
