As a result Gemma is one of the organisation’s top Consultants, meaning Whittlesey is home to some of the best slimming support in the UK.

“It’s not just a triumph for me though, this award belongs to my 200 members too. They’re the ones who make our groups the success that it is, with their fabulous commitment, the lovely warm welcome they give new members and the wonderful compassionate support they give each other every week, and, obviously, their impressive weight losses while following Slimming World’s Food Optimising eating plan. They make the groups fun and friendly places to be and I can safely say I always look forward to seeing everyone each week.”
