A BUSINESSWOMAN is losing pounds left, right and centre – and she doesn’t mind a bit.
Estate agent Kathryn Brown lost three-and-a-half stone when she joined an Ashington Slimming World class in 2007 to shed some pounds for her wedding.
The Ellington resident was so impressed that she applied to become a consultant herself and since 2009 she has run a weekly class at Alnwick.
Now she is branching out to Widdrington Station and just two weeks after starting up the group already has 32 members.
Mrs Brown said: “I felt I got a lot out of the slimming class. I just loved going and seeing everybody get their rewards, and I thought I could inspire people myself.
“I’ve been working in Alnwick and still have an evening group there, and I have just opened in Widdrington.
“I still love it and I hope I inspire the members. Certainly quite a few have got to their target. It’s all about planning and support. If any member is having a bad time, I know how they feel because I have been there myself. I had a baby and put weight back on so I’m back on the plan myself. That’s what’s good about it – there’s no judging.”
Mrs Brown has also urged others to consider joining the team as consultants.
“I have a part-time job as an estate agent and the evening groups fit in with my life. It is so flexible and the work is so rewarding. The job satisfaction you get from it is tremendous,” she said.
The Widdrington group meets at Grange View First School every Wednesday, at 7.30pm.
