Two Slimming World Consultants from Derry are feeling ready to make any dreams come true after meeting Jason Donovan.
Georgina McCarter and Kellie Durey said they were delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to the Australian heartthrob when he swapped Ramsay Street for the annual Slimming World Awards, co-hosting the event with the organisation’s founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.
Georgina, who runs a Slimming World group at Waterfoot Hotel every Monday and Tuesday, said meeting Jason was a wonderful way to round off a fabulous year. She said: “I couldn’t be more proudof our members. They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2015, with many of them making their weight loss dreams come true by hitting their target weight, improving their health and more.
“Every week I feel so lucky to play even a small part in people’s achievements and I felt very honoured to represent our Slimming World groups when I met Jason. Now I feel incredibly motivated and I can’t wait to support more people in County Derry to lead healthier, happier lives in 2016.”
Jason said he was thrilled to meet Georgina and Kellie at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre.
He added: “At the awards I met lots of people who’ve lost incredible amounts of weight and it has completely changed their lives – in fact, it’s saved their lives in some cases. And every single one of them told me that they couldn’t have made the changes they have to eat more healthily and become more active without the help and support of their Slimming World group and their consultant, so people like Georgina and Kellie are clearly very important.”
Kellie, who runs a Slimming World group at Eglinton Community Centre every Thursday, says 2015 has been a big year for Slimming World, with the organisation welcoming hundreds of thousands of members and launching its first-ever food range, and hopes 2016 will be just as successful.
“Lots of people will be making resolutions to lose weight and improve their health this New Year. I truly believe that joining their local Slimming World group is the best way for people to lose weight and learn new habits. I’d love anyone who’s thinking about losing weight this January to join us.”
