An inspirational slimmer who has sustained her 6 stone weight loss for an incredible 5 1/2 years has reached the semi-finals of a national competition to recognise the importance of weight maintenance.
Sue Balaban, who runs Slimming World groups in Bridlington, uses her experiences to help tons of other people to lose weight each week. She secured her place at the semi-finals of Slimming World’s Top Target Consultant 2019 competition after successfully maintaining her remarkable weight loss.
Sue was one of just 32 Consultants from across the UK and Ireland to bag a place in the finals.
Like all Slimming World Consultants, Sue lost weight with the organisation herself. At her heaviest she found both her health and confidence were suffering, so in January 2013, she joined her local Slimming World group. She reached her target weight 8 months later and has kept it off ever since – a remarkable 5 1/2 years.
Said Sue “Being able to lose weight without feeling hungry seemed too good to be true; I’m living proof that it works though. I was nervous when I first walked through the door yet it was without doubt one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. My whole life is completely different as a result.”
Sue unearthed a passion for helping others to achieve their weight-loss dreams and decided to train to become a Slimming World Consultant herself. Now she supports around 180 slimmers at her groups each week.
Sue’s weight loss put her in the running for Slimming World’s Top Target Consultant 2019 competition, which was open to all of the club’s 5,500 Consultants.
If you’re inspired by Sue’s journey, her Slimming World groups are held every Tuesday evening at 7.30pm at Christchurch and Tuesday mornings at 11.30am at Bridlington Rugby Club (the 9.30am session is currently very busy). Everyone’s welcome and anyone who’d like to find out more can visit www.slimmingworld.co.uk or call Sue on 07842 454250.
