An Epworth weight-watching expert who has helped her members lose more than a tonne of unwanted fat has received a national award for her services to slimmers.
Sam Purser, 37, was awarded Weight Watchers Diamond Leader status at the regional Weight Watchers conference in Manchester.
The award, which celebrates leaders who have provided exceptional support to their members during their weight loss journey is only given out once every two years to a select group of leaders across the country. This year alone, Sam has helped her members shed approximately 4,000lbs from the start of the year and has led over 100 to successfully shed five per cent or more of their weight.
Meeting member Esther Noble said: “Sam is wonderful. She is an inspiration to many of us and gives us great tips, tricks and support to help us achieve our weight loss goals. I have lost 84lb with Sam and I’ve never felt better.”
