A Slimming World Consultant from Grantham says she is feeling ready to make any weight-loss dream come true, after meeting legendary soap actor and popstar Jason Donovan at an awards ceremony.
Joolie Cunningham runs three Slimming World groups in the area, and was delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to the Aussie star when he swapped Ramsay Street for the annual Slimming World Awards. He co-hosted the event with the organisation’s chair and founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.
Joolie said meeting Jason was a wonderful way to round off a fabulous year for the Grantham Slimming World group, as well as a great way to get ready for another successful 12 months. “I couldn’t be prouder of the members of the Grantham group. They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2015, with many of them making their weight loss dreams come true by hitting their target weight, improving their health and more,” she said.
“It’s so rewarding to see people being able to do things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight, whether that’s wearing smaller clothes, taking up new hobbies, reducing medication or being able to do more with their family and friends.
“Every week I feel so lucky to play even a small part in people’s achievements and I felt very honoured to represent the Grantham Slimming World group when I met Jason. Now I feel incredibly motivated and I can’t wait to support more people in Grantham to lead healthier, happier lives in 2016.”
Donovan said he was thrilled to meet Joolie at the event, adding: “I met lots of people who’ve lost incredible amounts of weight and it has completely changed their lives – in fact, it’s saved their lives in some cases. And every single one of them told me that they couldn’t have made the changes they have to eat more healthily and become more active without the help and support of their Slimming World group and their Consultant, so people like Joolie are clearly very important.”
Joolie is determined to continue helping as many people as possible in the area to achieve their weight-loss aims. “Lots of people will be making resolutions to lose weight and improve their health this New Year. I truly believe that joining their local Slimming World group is the best way for people to lose weight and learn new habits,” she said.
“We’ve had a lot of fun together in 2015 and I can’t wait to see what 2016 holds for the Grantham Slimming World group. I’d love anyone who’s thinking about losing weight this January to join us at Harrowby Methodist Church, Grantham every Monday, at Great Ponton Village Centre, Grantham every Wednesday or at every Saturday at the Church of the Ascension hall, Harrowby.”
