And according to Lorraine Killen – a Slimming World district manager from Bedford, who lost five stone – it couldn't be easier.

She said: “With so many people struggling to lose weight on their own we are on a mission to find those special people in the local community who can help us.

“The opportunity to become a self-employed Slimming World consultant provides plenty of flexibility and fits around most lifestyles.

"Successful consultants can choose whether to work full-time running several groups or part-time running just one group to fit around family and other commitments.

"I worked full time and had two small children when I first started my business. I absolutely loved helping others, and knew it was something incredibly special and so rewarding. I was so proud to become employed by the company just three years after starting my first group.”

Lorraine lost five stone 10 years ago with Slimming World, and now supports 169 groups and their consultants.
