A WEIGHT-loss Consultant from Yate is celebrating after being recognised for the exceptional work in helping people in the area lose weight.

Bonny Mills, has been a consultant for Slimming World in Yate for the last six years and lost four stone herself as a member.

Now she has been recognised by the company for her good work, after being invited to Slimming World's Golden Anniversary Celebration 2019.

As part of the day, which was themed ‘50 amazing years, one special day’, Bonny was invited to share some of her learnings from running her award-winning groups, to inspire other attendees to continue to ensure fantastic weight losses and members’ success. She also picked up tips from the other Consultants there in return. All guests at the event were treated to a healthy lunch at Slimming World’s on-site restaurant, as well as hear from the company’s founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell.

Bonny said: “To receive an invite felt very special, it’s wonderful to be recognised as one of the highest-achieving Consultants.

“Helping people from Yate and Sodbury to achieve their dreams makes this the best job in the world and to be recognised for doing something I absolutely love feels fantastic."

"As self-employed franchisees we are always treated so well by Slimming World, and to be invited to an event like the Golden Anniversary Celebration and meet the founder Margaret herself was amazing – it really was the VIP treatment!

“Having the chance to get together with other high-achieving Consultants from across the country to share ideas and experiences is yet another example of the superb support that we get as Slimming World franchisees.

“All Slimming World Consultants receive in-depth training from the Slimming World Academy, based at Slimming World’s national Derbyshire head office. The training provided helps Consultants give their members the support they need to make long-term changes to improve their health and wellbeing as well as passing their new habits on to their member’s family. Training includes the role of diet and activity in weight management. Crucially, it also includes training in how to help members to lift the guilt and shame they may feel as a result of struggling with their weight and help them to form healthy lifestyle habits.

“I headed home at the end of the day brimming with ideas for helping my members, and I can’t wait to use what I’ve learned to take the support I give in group to the next level. I know what it’s like to struggle with your weight and I also know that with the right kind of support you can really make long-term healthy changes to lose weight and keep it off for good.”
