Members have lost a combined 143 stone since July - and they're encouraging others to join them.

It's a special year for Slimming World - the very first group was set up 50 years ago this January.

The New Year also marks a new start, as some slight changes to the programme are brought in, with an updated booklet for members.

Bex Rosall from Bulford started her own Slimming World journey in September 2015.

When she joined up, she weighed 14 stone 10 lbs.

By following the Food Optimising programme, she lost 5 stone within 11 months, and reached her target weight in December 2016.

She has also become a Slimming World Consultant, running group in Durrington every Wednesday evening at 5.30 and 7.30pm at the Village Hall.

In fact, Bex is so determined to help others with their own weight loss that she's quit her job of 14 years to go full time.

Bex says she just wants to encourage others to give it a try:

"If anyone in Durrington is thinking of embarking on a weight-loss journey this January, Slimming World is definitely the place to be - not only do we have five decades of experience helping millions of people to lose weight, we also have a fabulously fun calendar of celebrations planned throughout the year."

"While everyone else looks forward to Christmas, at Slimming World we always joke that we look forward to January because we love welcoming new people to our group and seeing them discover that they can lose weight without feeling hungry or deprived - and celebrating with them when they do. However, this year is more exciting than ever before because I know our 50th year is going to be even more special.

"Just like our founder Margaret back in 1969, I'm on a mission to help people to achieve their weight-loss dreams. She built Slimming World on the promise of weight loss with no hunger, no judgement and freedom from guilt, and that's exactly what our members still do today. "


It's a Food Optimising eating plan, which gives members choice over their own healthy options.

There are 'free foods' like lean meat and fish, pasta, rice, fruit, veg, eggs and fat-free dairy which you can have in unlimited amounts.

Then, you add in your 'Healthy Extras' to include calcium and fibre.

Finally, there's a chance to enjoy those treats you had before - like alcohol, biscuits, chocolate and more - within the plan, and guilt free.

Do that by counting up your 'syns'  for the day - you're allowed 5 to 15 of them.

Durrington group consultant Bex Rosall says:

"Our Food Optimising eating plan is based around satiety and energy density - eating foods that are best at satisfying your appetite and have fewest calories per gram of food - so you learn how to make healthy choices and lose weight - and keep it off - without feeling hungry.

"There's no such thing as a 'quick fix' when it comes to losing weight and Slimming World has always offered sustainable, long-term weight loss, so it's definitely the best choice for anyone wanting to get slim for life this January - and to have a great time in the process."


Bex's Slimming World groups are held at Durrington Village Hall at 5.30 and 7.30pm every Wednesday evening.

New members can pop along, or give Bex a call on 07827 919749.
