FEELING supported is the backbone of any weight loss journey, whether it’s by family, friends or a group of like-minded people.
I’m SO proud that people say the support they get on our programme is one of the best they’ve experienced.
Within Slimpod Club, our private Facebook group, we have amazing support from the community, a buddy system and mentoring.
We also have a constant programme of motivational challenges. In addition, of course, I do my weekly live chats, which are designed to motivate and inspire.
But we recognise that the group support up until now has only been available if you’re a Facebook user.
So our lovely community managers, Kate Morris and Lynn Haddrell, are going to be hosting weekly Zooms called Gold Gatherings to support the whole community whether you’re on Facebook or not.
Kate and Lynn recently joined Team Slimpod. They’re both Slimpodders and have great stories to tell.
I asked Lynn to introduce herself to you all and you’ll be amazed by her video:
This is the inspiring takeaway from Lynn:
“Slimpod has made me feel like a completely new person but in truth this me was always there, I just didn’t know how to find her.
“I am slimmer, fitter, healthier and I can look in the mirror and smile. I am a positive, calm, resilient and happy person who loves life.
“I’ve always been kind to others but am finally kind to myself too.”
What a wonderful, uplifting, full-of-hope story – just when we needed something to make us all feel better about life.
The Gold Gatherings are kicking off tonight (Monday Nov 2) at with a test run at 8pm for Slimpod Club members. It’s an informal gathering for Slimpod Club members who want to meet up for a chat and get support.
If you’re in Slimpod Club, we’ve already posted details on how to log in to the Zoom chat.
The community managers do not give weight loss advice but they can share their wisdom about Slimpod and point you in the direction of help if you’re struggling.
Next week’s Gold Gatherings will be a coffee morning on Wednesday Nov 11 at 10am. This will be held at GoldGatherings.com and will be open to all Slimpodders.
However, don’t go searching for GoldGatherings.com until next week as it won’t be open until shortly before each Zoom meeting takes place.
I’ll email you full details about next week’s Zoom chat, including a password, nearer the time.
Meanwhile, please leave a comment below to let Lynn and myself know how her story has resonated with you.
