AN ASHBOURNE slimming club leader was ‘delighted’ to meet a well know TV presenter at a recent awards ceremony.
Alison Foster, who runs a twice-weekly Slimming World group at the Waterside Centre was thrilled to get a chance to cuddle up to Paddy McGuiness when he co-hosted the club’s annual awards evening with the organisation’s chairman and founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.
Alison said meeting Paddy at the event was the cherry on the top of a great year for the Ashbourne group: “Obviously the most important thing of all is that the group have lost weight and improved their health throughout 2013.
“I’m so proud of all of my 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.
“I can’t wait to see what 2014 holds for the group and I’d love anyone who’s thinking about losing weight this January to join us.
“I truly believe that Slimming World is the best way for people to take control of their weight.“
