Joanne at Welcome Change Community Centre

Your Consultant is


Hi, I'm Jo – your group Consultant. I joined Slimming World after trying many other diets over the years but when my son was one, I realised that to be able to play with him properly I needed to lose weight. I was unfit and I could never find nice clothes in my size. About three years ago, I joined Slimming World, stuck with the plan and finally reached my target last year, just in time for my wedding. In total, I've lost 5 stone so I understand how hard losing weight can be, but I also know the feeling of jubilation when you have a good loss. Along with the support you'll receive in group, you will never regret taking this massive step towards a healthier, happier you x

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!
