After seeing some holiday photos of herself, Heather Pointer knew it was time for a change.
Three years later, she is 4 stones lighter and a totally different person. Now a Slimming World Consultant, she is dedicated to helping other people in the Macclesfield area change their lives for the better by losing weight, feeling more healthy and maintaining the weight loss long term.
Heather's groups have won Bronze and Ruby awards for helping so many people achieve their desired weight loss. From people who have had long term battles with their weight to others who want to look the best they can for a special occasion, we can help absolutely anyone lose weight.
When you lose weight with Slimming World, you don't go on a diet. Instead, you fill up on healthy food, meaning that there is no need to hungry. We call it Food Optimising - there is no calorie counting or foods that need to be avoided. You won't feel isolated from family meals; it is a long term healthy eating plan that will fit in with your day-to-day life.
What Happens at a Group?
Heather will personally welcome you to her Macclesfield groups, ensuring that you are put at ease from the moment you walk through the door. Before you decide to join, she will tell you about Slimming World and Food Optimising, before asking you to join the main group to enjoy the session called IMAGE Therapy.
IMAGE Therapy stands for Individual Motivation and Group Experience and is full of inspirational stories, laughter, friendship, support and recipes for healthier living.
After the session, Heather will invite you to enrol and get weighed. Your weight remains private and confidential throughout your time with Slimming World. We do not believe in embarrassing people into losing weight; as someone who has struggled with weight loss herself, Heather knows that positivity, support and motivation are the key to success.
People of all different shapes, sizes, ages and genders come along to the Macclesfield Slimming World groups - in fact, they range from 11 to 80! Slimming World offers children from 11 to 15 the option of coming along for free with a full paying member. We call this Free2Go and tailor our weight loss plan to the needs of younger people.
