The Haddenham Slimming World group has gone from strength to strength since it opened in January 2014 and will be opening a second session at 5.30pm, in addition to its regular 7.30pm session on Thursday 10th September.
The friendly village group now has over 90 members, including many men. Local people's lives have literally been transformed as they lose weight. Consultant Francesca Flaxton says "Members love the fact that they can fill up on masses of healthy 'free' foods and never go hungry. It's not unusual to see losses of 4 to 8lb in the first week, followed by consistent weight losses every week."
"We have loads of ladies and men who have lost 2, 3, 4, even 5 stone. It's such a friendly and supportive group, very much a part of our community and I'm so proud of all of them. We welcome new members every week and it's now so popular that we're opening a second session at 5.30, in addition to our regular 7.30 group on 10th September".
The group has just held its Woman of the Year competition, when the members nominated 7 ladies who inspire them. The winner, Elaine Westbrook, has lost almost 5 stone in 13 months. Runners up, Ange Bull and Sarah Watkins have lost an incredible 8 stone between them. All three say they are fitter, healthier and more confident as a result of their amazing achievements.
Slimming World is held on Thursdays at St Mary's CE School, Aston Road. From 10th September, there will be two sessions: at 5.30pm and at 7.30pm.
