Penni at Poplars Community Centre

Your Consultant is


In August 2016 I walked through the doors to my first ever Slimming World group shy, alone, afraid and friendless. I’d tried so many crazy things over the years to lose weight. After losing more than 3 stones and reaching my target I’ve become a Consultant – to help others achieve their weight-loss dreams. From the moment I walked in I felt welcomed and realised I was in a group of supportive, friendly and caring people, who were going through the same journey as me. As weeks passed, I made friends who I knew would be with me forever. I lost my first half a stone in a month – being recognised with a certificate and applauded by the group made me want to continue even more.

Your first time at a Slimming World group

As soon as you walk through the doors, you’ll get a warm welcome from your Consultant and fellow members. Before you go ahead and join, your Consultant will explain everything you need to know about our delicious Food Optimising plan.

You’ll then be invited to enjoy our support session where our members share ideas, recipes and their inspirational stories – this is where the magic happens!

Along with other new members, you’ll enrol and weigh-in privately – your weight always remains confidential.

The session will last around 1½ hours – there's no obligation to join, but you’ll be so glad you did!
