A GROUP of Middlewich Slimming World consultants have got the magic touch when it comes to weight loss, according to TV presenter Stephen Mulhern.

Middlewich consultants Linsey, Penny and Deborah met Stephen when he co-presented the annual Slimming World Awards alongside its founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell.

Linsey said meeting Stephen was a great way to round of 2016, adding: “We couldn’t be prouder of our members.

“They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2016, with many of them making their weight loss dreams come true by hitting their target weight, improving their health and confidence, and more.

“Every week we feel so lucky to play even a small part in people’s achievements and we felt very honoured to represent our Slimming World groups when we met Stephen.

“Meeting him has re-inspired us and now we feel super motivated to support even more people in Middlewich to lead healthier, happier lives in 2017.”

Penny said: “Lots of people will be making resolutions to lose weight and improve their health this New Year. I truly believe that joining a local Slimming World group is the best way for people to lose weight and learn new habits.”

Catchphrase host and former magician Stephen said of the event: “I’m known for my magic tricks and there was definitely magic in the air at the Slimming World Awards.

“The stories I heard from people who had lost amazing amounts of weight and transformed themselves – inside and out – were so inspirational.”

Three Slimming World groups are held at the Wych Centre in Civic Way, on Tuesday morning and evenings and Thursday evenings. Visit slimmingworld.co.uk for more.
