Slimming World in Firhouse Relaunches

Margaret Hackett SW Firhouse

On the 27th of May, Margaret Hackett relaunches the Slimming World group in Firhouse Community Centre. Margaret, who has recently become a Slimming World consultant will host 5:30pm and 7:30pm sessions.

Margaret began her weight loss journey began on 17th April 2018 in a local Slimming World.  By December 23rd she had reached target after losing an incredible 4 stone in 8 months! Margaret commented “I achieved this simply by changing the way I eat. Slimming World is NOT A DIET, it’s a lifestyle change.  No food is banned, there is no calorie counting and little or no weighing & measuring.  You can still enjoy all your favourite foods and even your few drinks”.

The new consultant added “Before I joined Slimming World I was very unhappy.  I was conscious of my size and hated buying new clothes.  I was always tired and unable to do much exercise. My confidence was at an all-time low! When I joined Slimming World I was nervous but excited at the same time. I wanted to change my life.  I couldn’t believe how many people were there hoping to do the same thing.  Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The support & encouragement from the group every week is amazing – I learn something new every week.  That 1 1/2 hours every Tuesday morning is something I feel I owe to myself.”

In the first week, Margaret had a 4 lb loss and it spurred her on to have another great week of food optimising   The amount of food you can eat is limitless and I never feel hungry with three healthy meals a day and snacking on “free food “.  Margaret concluded “For the first time in years I actually like my body! I do aqua aerobics twice a week and I swim once a week.  I have also joined the gym. I now exercise every day and I’m looking forward to completing the Women’s Mini Marathon in June. If you are inspired by my story, come along and see what Slimming World is all about. There’ll be a friendly smile waiting for you at the door and a cup of tea or coffee.  There’s no judgement or humiliation and your information is completely confidential. Change your life while eating the foods you love!!”

Monday evenings at 5:30pm and 7:30pm at Firhouse Community Centre, Ballycullen Drive, Dublin 24. For more information see
