When Sandra Forder first became a Weight Watcher at Harleston, she lost over 59 lbs.
In the 11 years since, she has become a Weight Watchers coach, working six days a week and running ten meetings — including the group where she began as a clerk.
Last year alone, she helped her members lose 550 stones — and she is now a Weight Watchers diamond coach.
It is an award only given out every two years to coaches who have demonstrated exceptional support to their members.
“I am passionate about Weight Watchers,” said Mrs Forder. “I love the job. I want to give people the same help I had when I lost my weight.”
Mrs Forder, who lives at Ditchingham, added: “I’m so proud of my members and what they’ve achieved. It has been a fantastic year and to receive this award for doing something I love is amazing.
“It’s great to see my members enjoying the food they love and jumping off the scales happy.”
One of her members, Anne, said: “Sandra is a real inspiration. She always provides great tips, tricks and support to help us achieve our weight loss goals and develop healthier habits. I have lost four stone with Sandra and I’ve never felt better.”
The Harleston Weight Watchers meet on Thursdays at Archbishop Sancroft High School.
“I have fantastic members who are doing really well,” she said.
