A slimming expert in Ilkeston has landed a gold award for helping more than 100 people achieve their weight- loss goals.
Jules Bullock, 41, of Ilkeston, who runs the Slimming World group at Arena Church, on Rutland Street was awarded gold status last week.
The consultant who has run the group since 2009 was delighted to receive the award.
She said: “I absolutely love my job and I’m passionate about helping people to transform their lives by losing weight.
“Seeing them succeed is reward enough, but being given this recognition, for the whole group really is the icing on the cake.”
She added: “The Arena group has really put healthy weight loss on the map in Ilkeston.
“Together, they’ve lost an amazing 127 stone this year.”
The award represents the highest level of service in Slimming World.
Jules is now among just five percent of Slimming World’s 3,500 consultants nationally who have achieved gold status.
