A temporary ‘virtual’ weight loss service has been launched to support Exmouth slimmers during the coronavirus crisis.
Slimming World groups in Exmouth were suspended last month in response to social distancing guidelines from the Government.
‘Virtual’ groups have been launched using the video conferencing app Zoom where members can interact with their consultant and fellow slimmers.
The groups run on a similar timetable to the suspended groups and members weigh themselves at home and report their progress to their consultant via text message.
Slimming World member Tina Drew said being able to see friends she would normally see every week is a ‘real tonic’.
She added: “It keeps me just checking what I’m eating. I prefer the real thing but in these difficult times this is a good way forward.”
Fellow slimmer Emma Davies added: “It’s helping me to be more mindful of what I am eating as I am continuing to weigh each week.”
