Jo to pass on her slimming secrets after losing 30lbs and hitting target weight in five months – DorsetBizNews – Dorset Biz News

Jo Campbell-Dykes is to share her slimming secrets after transforming her life by losing 30lbs.

Shes to use her success to shape a whole new career, helping others to achieve their weight loss dreams too.

Jo joined her local Slimming World group in Corfe Mullen, and achieved her target weight in just five months.

She said: Earlier in the year, before I joined my group, I was really struggling with my health and the recent loss of my dad.

Also having a child with complex special needs, I was getting very little help and feeling isolated.

I never dreamt that I would then find such support and long term friendships whilst improving my physical and mental health.

Jo has trained as a Consultant for Slimming World, the UKs largest group-based weight loss organisation, at its national training academy in Derbyshire.

She is now opening her own Saturday morning group in Oakdale, Poole.

Latest government figures reveal that 28 per cent of adults in England are obese and a further 36 per cent are overweight.

It is estimated that, by 2034, the percentage of obese adults will be one in three.

Jo said her new role had never been more important.

She said: Obesity is becoming such a huge issue across the UK.

When I first joined Slimming World as a member, I never dreamed that I would end up helping other people to lose weight but now I just cant wait to get started.

Ive have been overweight since a young age and I was bullied emotionally and physically, through my school years.

My whole adult life has been spent constantly struggling to lose weight and then to keep it off.

After losing over 2st and now completing my training, its a privilege for me to be able to pass on the experience, insight and understanding that helped me, so that I can give my members the support they need to get to target.

Support is really the most important thing.

It all starts with feeling that youre not alone.

I couldnt have lost the weight without the weekly help, encouragement and understanding of my own Consultant and group.

As someone who has lost weight myself I know the challenges people can face, which is why, along with the group, I will be there to support every one of my members all the way to their chosen target weight.

Setting targets, sharing recipes and other ideas, and working together as a group to overcome challenges and celebrate success is so important to a successful journey.

Like a lot of slimmers, I had tried to lose weight so many times before by following numerous diets but they were never sustainable because Id always get tired of restricting what I ate.

I thought I was destined to continue to struggle with my weight for the rest of my life, but when I came to Slimming World it was different.

I never felt like I was on a diet.

The eating plan encourages you to eat lots of tasty, filling foods like pasta, rice, potatoes and lean meat and fish, you are never hungry and no foods are banned so theres no deprivation.

I couldnt believe Id found a way to lose weight without starving myself.

Slimming World isnt just about changing what you eat.

Becoming more active is important too.

Our Body Magic programme takes the threat out of activity by showing people, many of whom have unpleasant memories of being forced to take part in activity at school, how they can build activity into their daily routine without having to take up traditional forms of exercise like going to the gym or running.

Slimming World Consultants are all former members who have lost weight at their local group themselves.

Groups are set up as micro businesses in the heart of local communities.

There are currently around 4,000 Slimming World Consultants across the UK and Ireland running 15,000 groups.

Consultants receive training in Slimming Worlds healthy eating and physical activity programmes and learn how to use the power of group support to empower members to take control of their own weight loss journey.

As self-employed micro-entrepreneurs, Consultants also learn how to build a successful community-based business.

Jo said: For me becoming a self-employed franchisee was a great option.

I wanted a job that was well paid, flexible and could fit around my busy family life, so launching my own Slimming World group was an ideal option.

I feel like Ive got a brand new career helping others, and I cant wait for my new group to open.

Zoe Mole, pictured left, who runs Slimming Worlds Corfe Mullen group and manages Jo as a Team Developer, said: Slimming World Consultants are chosen for their positive outlook and because they genuinely care about the health and happiness of others.

With Jos experience of being a successful Slimming World member, and her kind and warm personality and great sense of humour, I just know that shell be an amazing support to members, cheering them all the way to their target weight.

Jos Slimming World group is at Oakdale Conservative Club, Darbys Lane, Poole, every Saturday at 8am from November 5.
