Welcome to Slim With Pat! - Virtual and Physical Slimming World Groups
Our group runs a combination of virtual Slimming World groups (weigh in at home from anywhere) or physical Slimming World groups (weighing in at our venues in Dublin 15) with optional group meetings online via Zoom or at physical venue when available / covid restrictions allow.
When you join our group you get support, encouragement and motivation from your group of like minded individuals and dedicated consultant. You get all the experience, tips, tricks and meal ideas you can handle from our group and a fabulous food plan, allowing you to still eat all your favourite meals and still lose weight.
You'll also get access to our members website full of motivation, tools, articles and recipes and our new smart phone app (including new barcode scanner) with optional access to a closed and private Facebook support group. And Optional Image Therapy / Group – where members meet together to celebrate success and help each other overcome any challenges faced.
For us personally as such at Slim With Pat groups we have 4 levels / versions of that Image Therapy Group available to us depending on what level of restrictions are in place.
Option 1 (During Level 1 and 2 Restrictions). – Members weigh in at group on our scales and can still sit down together for a meeting after – with all the appropriate covid safety precautions in place to keep our members safe and sound. We've worked very hard to be able to offer this service!
Option 2 (During Level 3 Restrictions). – In this scenario, our Blakestown Community Centre group is open for weigh in and shop etc on Wednesday evenings and Thursday mornings, with our group meeting taking place online via Zoom shortly after weigh in.
Option 3 (During Level 4 and 5 restrictions) – Where our venues can't open for weigh in like in Option 2, our members weigh in at home on their own scales, submit weigh in results and a group image therapy session takes place online via Zoom around the same time as normal group would take place.
Option 4 (Our Virtual Group) For as long as the current covid situation continues we also offer a fully virtual service to members weighing in at home with dedicated zoom sessions available.
Obviously Option 1 is the best case scenario for our physical groups (short of covid being gone completely and everything going back to the way it was beforehand!) But we are always here, week in and week out, no matter what restrictions are in place, because we know how important being a member is, and how that weekly weigh in and top up of motivation and encouragement is needed, no matter if that comes from a physical location or online.
The main thing is being part of your group, helping you and supporting you stay on track on your journey – no matter what life throws at us.
I've been a consultant with Slimming World since 2016 having lost 5 stone as a member myself. My groups (Physical and Virtual) provide fun, support, motivation and encouragement alongside Slimming Worlds fabulous Food Optimising plan. Lose weight whilst continuing to enjoy your favourite foods and meals and never go hungry!
New and returning members are always welcome both virtually and in our physical groups when they return!
