Your very first group will last around 1½ hours, then it's up to 1 hour each week after that.
Weight loss programme
motivation and support
A friendly and super-supportive group is the very best place to learn how to understand yourself as a slimmer and achieve your dream target. Here’s what your very first group has in store...
A warm welcome, kindness and care
As soon as you walk through the doors of a Slimming World group, you’ll be greeted by your Consultant and a group of really friendly people, all at various stages of their slimming journey. People who truly ‘get it’, who’ll listen, understand, and who’ll inspire you through the great times, and the trickier ones.
During your first half an hour your Consultant will talk you through Food Optimising – our generous, flexible eating plan. Then, if you love what you’ve heard (and we’re sure you will), take a seat – the best is yet to come.
Personalised group support
We understand that losing weight isn’t always plain sailing. To change lifelong habits, we have to look deep within ourselves – which is so much easier with the right support.
That’s why each week in IMAGE Therapy (which stands for Individual Motivation And Group Experience), you’ll get personalised support, share recipes, ideas and strategies to keep you highly motivated and on track as you build your knowledge of Food Optimising and our Body Magic activity programme. It’s based on Slimming World’s deep understanding of the psychology of slimming and we’ve helped millions of people make lasting changes.
You’re never alone
Afterwards you’ll be invited to weigh in and set your dream target – the weight you’d love to be. Never forget, in a Slimming World group your weight is always confidential and there’s never any humiliation or judgement – just care, support and encouragement.
Nothing – absolutely nothing – beats the friendship, the trust, the community spirit and the support of your amazing Slimming World group.
