A slimming consultant from Market Rasen is feeling ready to make any (weight-loss) dream come true after meeting actor and popstar Jason Donovan.
Shona Drew, who runs a Slimming World group in The Festival Hall, was delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to the Australian heartthrob when he swapped Ramsay Street for the annual Slimming World Awards.
Shona, from Binbrook, said meeting Jason was a wonderful way to round off a fabulous year for the Market Rasen group, as well as a great way to get ready for another successful 12 months.
“I couldn’t be prouder of the members of the Market Rasen group,” she said.
“They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2015, with many of them making their weight loss dreams come true by hitting their target weight, improving their health and more.
“It’s so rewarding to see people being able to do things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight, whether that’s wearing smaller clothes, taking up new hobbies, reducing medication or being able to do more with their family and friends.
“Every week I feel so lucky to play even a small part in people’s achievements and I felt very honoured to represent the Market Rasen Slimming World group when I met Jason.
“Now I feel incredibly motivated and I can’t wait to support more people in Market Rasen to lead healthier, happier lives in 2016.”
Jason, who found fame on Aussie soap opera Neighbours before launching a pop music and stage career, said he was thrilled to meet Shona at the event, which was held at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre.
“At the awards I met lots of people who’ve lost incredible amounts of weight and it has completely changed their lives – in fact, it’s saved their lives in some cases,” he said.
“And every single one of them told me that they couldn’t have made the changes they have to eat more healthily and become more active without the help and support of their Slimming World group and their Consultant, so people like Shona are clearly very important.”
