Founding member Ellen Foulstone told News Of the Area, “We’d been travelling to Karuah to a slimmers group for years when myself and Lyn Humphries decided to start up a meeting in Tea Gardens.”

“We approached the Country Club and they were only too happy to supply a room for us to hold our weigh ins and that was 10 years ago.”

“During the years our numbers have fluctuated as have our weights,” Ellen said.

“But we have a lot of fun, we are not a miracle group, but we are a support group for one another, swapping recipes, talking about food labels and portion controls.”

“One of our members has lost a staggering 23 kilos.”

“Some of our members are quite elderly, so when it comes to exercise we do things like chair yoga,”Ellen said.

The group celebrated its 10th birthday with a dinner at the Country Club last Thursday night.

“After their weigh ins we all enjoy a great meal and the odd glass of wine, then it’s back to being good for the rest of the week.”
