Rachel at Base Camp

Your Consultant is


I remember the night I first walked into Slimming World so vividly - I'd never been so nervous. I was a young mum of two, and if I am truly honest, I had lost sight of myself. I lacked confidence and self-belief and I wanted to find my sparkle again - which is why I joined. I suddenly dared to dream that I could do this, for me! Within 6 months of joining I had reached my target weight and lost 3st 7lbs in total. My health, happiness, confidence and general oomph for life were now at an all-time high. These are the reasons that 3 years ago I became a consultant. A member with experience is all I am, and I'm passionate about our wonderful Food Optimising plan. If you're looking to chase a dream then please come along.

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!
