NEWBRIDGE Slimming World leader Barbara Byrne, was delighted to get a chance to meet TV presenter Rylan Clark-Nea at the recent SW awards. Barbara, who runs a weekly6 Slimming World meeting at the Open Arms Church each Tuesday night said meeting the TV host was a wonderful way to round off a great year as well as a brilliant way to start 2019 – Slimming World’s Golden Year:
“I couldn’t be prouder of my members, not only have they lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2018 – with many of them hitting their target weights – they’ve also improved their health, boosted their confidence and are heading into 2019 with new healthy habits that will stay with them for life.
“Watching people change before my eyes and start being able to do things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight absolutely amazes me. Every week I feel privileged to play even a small part in supporting people towards these achievements and to celebrate with them, so I felt especially honoured to represent my members at the Slimming World Awards.
Rylan, who is now a seasoned presenter having appeared on This Morning and Channel 5’s Big Brother’s Little Brother, said he was thrilled to meet Barbara at the event, which was held at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre. “People like Barbara are clearly worth their weight in gold,” he said.
Barbara continues: “2018 has been a brilliant year for Slimming World. We’ve launched our Slim for Life plan to give even more support to our target members, and won awards for both our magazine and food range. We’re hoping our golden year will be even more successful and we have a string of exciting activities planned to celebrate our 50th birthday in style, including the launch of brand-new websites and apps, golden events and special publications.
“So, this New Year I truly believe that joining a local Slimming World group is the best way for people to lose weight, learn new habits and make long-term healthy changes.Thanks to our eating plan they’ll see big results on the scales without ever having to feel hungry or deprived, and at the Newbridge group they’ll discover a whole world of support and advice that’s sure to help them achieve their targets – and have a lot of fun along the way too! I’d love for anyone who wants to make a change to join us at Open Arms Church Hall, Newbridge every Tuesday and Springfield Hotel, Leixlip every Wednesday, I promise they won’t look back!”
