Gaynor, who says she ‘knows the misery of being overweight’ having lost four and a half stones herself adds: “I am proud to say I have kept my focus after all these 22 years.

“When I took the most amazing leap of faith back in 1994 to become a Slimming World consultant for this amazing company little did I know that day would change mine and my family’s life in a way dreams are made of. As our healthy eating plan is family friendly we enjoy all the meals together.

“Still to this very day Wednesday in the community centre here in Great Sutton is such a magical day welcoming over 250 members through our doors, each with a journey, each with a dream. Knowing that I can help each and everyone of them achieve that dream is beyond words.”
