Slimmer Sara’s success story
Last updated at 11:12, Thursday, 11 July 2013
FROM a Cleator Moor consultant to glamorous cover girl is Sara Rogers.
The mother-of-two is featured on the front of August’s Slimming World magazine which sells over 400,000 copies a month.
Sara, who runs Slimming World classes in Cleator Moor, was invited to attend a London photo shoot where she was styled as one of several ‘success’ stories across the pages.
However, while enjoying the all-day pampering she had no idea the editor had chosen her as that month’s cover girl.
Sara, of Moor Row, said. “The photo-shoot was fantastic. The make-up artist had previously worked with Helen Mirren, Dawn French and Nigella Lawson.
“When I walked into the room there were stylists with hundreds of outfits and accessories. They started taking pictures and I heard them say: ‘That’s the shot’. I didn’t realise I was going to be the cover. When I found out I cried!’’
It was a particularly emotional for Sara, whose beloved grandmother, Gwen Goodfellow, had died only days before the shoot. “My husband, Daley, who also came to London, bought me, my mum and sister each a ring with my grandma’s birthstone,’’ she said.
Sara became a consultant last summer after losing two stones on the Slimming World plan following the birth of her first child. She has since had a second baby, but remains at her target weight.
“Becoming a consultant forced me to step outside of my comfort zone,’’ she explained. “I had never stood in front of a group of people before. I was really nervous.
“However, I love the job and it has really changed me. The best thing is to help my class members achieve their aims.’’
Sara runs Slimming World groups each Thursday at Cleator Moor Civic Hall. The magazine will be on sale next week.
