An Inverurie Slimming World manager has got the magic touch when it comes to weight loss according to TV presenter Stephen Mulhern.

Rachel Fyfe was delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to Stephen when he presented the annual Slimming World Awards.

Rachel said: “I couldn’t be prouder of all of the members in Inverurie. They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2016, with many of them making their weight loss dreams come true by hitting their target weight, improving their health and confidence, and more.

“It’s so rewarding to see people being able to do things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight, whether that’s having more energy and confidence, wearing smaller clothes, taking up new hobbies, reducing medication or doing more with their family and friends.

“Every week I feel so lucky to play even a small part in people’s achievements and I felt very honoured to represent all of the Slimming World groups in Inverurie when I met Stephen.

“He was bowled over by the difference Slimming World makes to people and how it changes their lives, so meeting him has re-inspired me and now I feel super motivated to support even more people in Inverurie to lead healthier, happier lives in 2017.”

Stephen, who presents Catchphrase and Britain’s Got More Talent, said he was thrilled to meet Rachel at the event, which was held at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre.

He added: “The stories I heard from people who had lost amazing amounts of weight and transformed themselves – inside and out – were so inspirational.

“While all of their stories were different, the one thing they all had in common was how much they felt they owed to their ‘Slimming World family’.

“Every one of them spoke passionately about how they felt that they couldn’t have achieved everything they had or made the changes they have to eat more healthily and become more active without the support, advice and encouragement of their group each and every week, so people like Rachel who run and manage the groups are clearly very important.”
