More on Slimming World:-

Tue 2 June: Settle 9.30am: Slimming World -Tue Mornings –
Settle 7pm:    Slimming World -Tue Evenings
both at Settle Social Club

For  the 50 percent of you who receive my emails who are superfit and
skinny,  these meetings will be irrelevant, but for everyone else: –

I’m  giving  a plug  for  “Slimming  World” because:

I  am  enjoying  it  and
It  gives  me the discipline to keep trying.
It’s fun.
We support each other at the group

You  don’t have to count calories, and you can eat as much as you want
provided it is certain types of food.

It’s  a  very  healthy diet.
Losing 1 1/4 stone saves you the equivalent of carrying a
washing-up  bowl full of water around  every day (See.. I do it
because I am lazy)
It makes it easier on my knees.
It  gave me the incentive to attend various fitness activities which I
also enjoy attending in their own right.
There are many websites  which  say  how losing a bit of weight (for
average  and obese people) makes you healthier and live longer. Then
you can be more helpful to other people..

There  are at least 5 men who come, (maybe more), and two who stay for
the whole session.

So if you have been thinking about coming, give it a try.

There  is  a  new  class opening this Tuesday on Tuesday mornings. (as
well  as  the old one continuing in the evenings – Now at Settle Social
Club

Once you have joined, you can stay for the whole two hour sessions or
just go  in and get weighed.

(At least 4 people who get these emails already attend)

Phone  Sheila,  the leader on 07894 275 431 for more details.. or just
turn up.  http://www.slimmingworld.com/

If  you  do  not  wish  to receive these “Events around Settle” emails
