The manager of Slimming World groups in Arbroath ‘lit up’ when she met TV comedian Paddy McGuinness at a national awards ceremony.
Fiona Maxwell travelled down to the organisation’s annual event at the Birmingham International Convention Centre.
And while there, she met Paddy, star of the hit STV dating series ‘Take Me Out’.
The New Year often sees many people take the resolution to lose weight and get fit and healthy.
And with several groups operating in the local area, Fiona believes it’s never too late to sign up and shed the pounds.
She said: “Obviously the most important thing of all is that our members have lost weight and improved their health throughout 2013 and we’re so proud of all of our members – many of them have achieved their target weights and been able do things they never thought possible before slimming down, including doing more with their families, taking up new hobbies, reducing medication or simply fitting in smaller-sized clothes.
“And they’re helping their entire family to eat more healthily too. But as well as seeing stonking success on the scales, we’ve had a lot of fun throughout the year too – we’ve held parties in group, raised money for charity and members have cheered each other on with every step of their weight loss journey.
“I can’t wait to see what 2014 holds for Slimming World and I’d love anyone who’s thinking about losing weight this January to join us.”
