A weight loss expert from Bridlington has struck gold for the exceptional work she has done in helping more than 100 people to lose weight at her local group every week.
Jackie Dixon, who runs the Rugby Club Slimming World groups, has been awarded ‘Gold’ status by the national club because of her success in supporting slimmers to reach their dream weight.
The accolade is given to Slimming World Consultants who consistently have 100 or more members in their group over several months, and come back because they are losing weight.
The award puts Jackie in the top five per cent of the organisation’s 3,500 Consultants, meaning Bridlington is home to some of the best slimming support in the UK. She is also the first ever Bridlington Consultant to get the award. Jackie said: “I absolutely love my job, I’m passionate about helping people to transform their lives by losing weight and seeing them succeed is reward enough. This award really belongs to the Rugby Club Tuesday group’s 150 members as they make it so successful.”
Altogether Jackie’s group has lost an amazing 130.5 stone this year. “It’s never been more important that overweight people get the support to make changes to and lead healthier lives – both for themselves and the future generations,” she said.
To join any of the Rugby Club groups, which are held every Monday at 5.30pm and 7.30pm or Tuesday at 9.30am and 11.30am, either pop along or give Jackie a call on 07833 223614.
