A weight loss expert from Beverley has struck gold for the exceptional work she does in helping more than 380 people to lose weight every week.
Philippa Dukes, who runs three Beverley Slimming World groups every week, was presented with a Gold Award at the national slimming club’s annual awards ceremony in Birmingham because of her success in supporting slimmers to reach their dream weight .
In April, Philippa became one of Slimming World’s Gold Consultants again. The accolade is awarded in recognition of achieving the highest levels of support for slimmers and giving expert advice to help the people of Beverley reach their weight loss goals week after week.
It places Beverley in the top 5% of the organisation’s 3,500 Consultants, meaning Beverley is home to some of the best slimming support in the UK.
Philippa was one of a high flying group of 73 Slimming World Consultants, who have all become Senior Consultants in the last 12 months. It’s the 8th time Philippa has been awarded the prize since becoming a Consultant in 2006.
Philippa said: “I am delighted to have received the Gold Award again.
“I love my job, I’m passionate about helping people to change their lives by losing weight and seeing them succeed is reward enough so being given this recognition really is the icing on the cake.
“It’s not just a triumph for me though,this award belongs to my Beverley members too.
They are the ones who make our groups the success that they are, with their fabulous commitment, the lovely warm welcome they give new members and the wonderful compassionate support they give each other every week, and, obviously, their impressive weight losses while following Slimming World’s Food Optimsing eating plan.
Philippa said: “They make the groups a fun and friendly place o be and I can safely say I always look forward to going to work. I truly believe I have the best job in the world.”
“Every single group has really put healthy weight loss on the map in Beverley.
“Together, they have lost an amazing 625 stone in 6 months. Obesity is at record levels everywhere and the percentage of adults in Beverley is rising.”
