Slimming World: Helping You Reach Your Weight Loss Goals

Helen, from Slimming World, is here to help you shed any unwanted lockdown pounds.

During lockdown, we’ve all reached for the odd ‘treat’ or takeout or sat on the sofa for a little too long and who can blame us? It’s been a tough year! But with vaccines now being rolled out and Summer fast approaching, now might be the perfect time to make a lifestyle change in order to make 2021 the best year for you. 

Many of you may know, or have been a part of, Slimming World, what with it being established way back in 1969 by the lovely Margaret Miles-Bramwell 

Margaret always believed that those who are overweight struggle with two things: the physical burden of weight but also the shame or criticism some may experience while being a certain size.

Well, the lovely Suffolk team at Slimming World are here to help you achieve any weight loss goals you may have in a safe and healthy way. Helen Scott started the programme six years ago after seeing how well the diet worked for her friend. 

Helen explains: “When I joined, I didn’t believe I could lose weight and I definitely didn’t think I could keep the weight off forever but I’ve come such a long way and I’m so much happier now.”

She recently became a consultant for Slimming World in October after her multiple experiences working as a nurse for the NHS where she sees so many patients come in that are desperate to lose weight and change their lifestyle for good. 

Helen decided that, having gone on her own weight loss journey and with a little persuasion from her own consultant, she was the right person to be a helping hand through someone’s journey. 

Helen said: “I love to help people, I think I am caring by nature and, when I see people walk into the NHS and tell me they can’t lose weight, I know that with the right support they absolutely can and go on to lead a much healthier lifestyle. In my time at Slimming World, I’ve seen people come off medication and even smile more week by week”

Helen caters for all ages within the local vicinity of Lawford, Manningtree, Brantham, Bradfield, Ardleigh, Great Bromley and even further if people need her to. 

Based in Lawford, at the Venture Centre, Helen runs her Slimming World sessions on Thursday afternoons and is already helping people drop the pounds, her own mother even losing six stone in the process- which is incredible! 

While in lockdown, Helen is doing the sessions virtually so that everyone can still get the support they need on their journey.

To book in with Helen for a consultation appointment, go to the Slimming World website under the Lawford location or give her a ring on 07891 315177 or email at
