AN MP has praised people shedding weight.
Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage visited Slimming World in Alverstoke to meet members. It comes after Gosport was ranked the sixth most obese local authority area in the country.
Ms Dinenage said: ‘I paid a visit to Slimming World in Alverstoke and heard about the incredible progress that the group has made in the past 24 weeks, losing a scale-shattering 232 stone and half a pound in total.
‘The organisation is turning around the lives of men and women across our area, helping them to make better food choices, get more active and have an all-round healthier lifestyle.’
There are 35 groups and 65 sessions in Gosport and Fareham with 15 consultants and 2,500 members.
