Fat of the Fens falling over themselves to join expanding Slimming World group

THE fat of the Fens are falling over themselves to sign up to lose weight as a slimming group is set for rapid expansion.

Denise Fassler’s Tuesday evening Slimming World sessions in Whittlesey have proved so successful that more than 80 members have signed up in the hope of losing weight.

And now - with the group bursting at the seams - Ms Fassler has added a new morning session to cope the extra demand from slimmers across the area. It will begin on Tuesday.

Ms Fassler said: “Obesity is a such a huge issue across the UK and the numbers joining Slimming World help to demonstrate the awareness that people have with regards to being overweight and the health risks it can bring.

“Members are joining in order to lose weight and improve their health. The benefits we can all achieve from losing just 10 per cent of our body weight are amazing. On top of that your mood and self-esteem can also benefit.”

Ms Fassler dropped from a size 18 to a size 10 in less than a year after joining a Slimming World group. She decided to become a consultant four years ago.

Slimming World groups use a ‘food optimising plan’ which includes being able to eat unlimited amounts of everyday food such as pasta, rice, fat free dairy products and chicken.
