How Slimming World Support is Like Friendsgiving

Are you hosting or going to a Friendsgiving dinner this year? A gathering of friends sharing delicious food is a wonderful way to spend a day…and that feeling is very similar to what you’ll find in your online Slimming Group, as a member.

How is our Slimming Group support like a Friendsgiving gathering? Our groups bring members together in real-time online weekly meetings, where we cheer each other on and celebrate successes; share ideas, recipes, and challenges; and lean on one another for support through our weight-loss journeys—much like you’d do at a gathering of friends! You’ll quickly make lasting friendships and connections with fellow members in your weekly online group meetings. Even though we’re losing weight online, we’re not losing weight alone.

Lisa Taylor, Member Support Manager at Slimming World, has lost 115 pounds* with the friendship and support she found with Slimming World: “It’s said that friends are the family that you choose for yourself. I had no idea when I joined Slimming World as a member just how important my fellow members would become—not just to my weight loss, but to my life! Years later, those relationships are just as important. Their encouragement and support were and continue to be a key to my success.”

We hope you’ll discover the world of support and friends waiting for you, to help you on your weight-loss journey. And PS: as a member, you’ll find delicious recipes for lightened-up versions of all the Thanksgiving classics (from turkey to pumpkin pie) to bring to your real-life Friendsgiving and Thanksgiving gatherings!

*Your weight loss will vary according to your individual circumstances and how much you have to lose.
