ALISON HAMMOND SURPRISES WW MEMBERS WITH VIDEO CALLS TO CELEBRATE THEIR MILESTONE MOMENTS

15th July 2019: Alison Hammond, WW, the new Weight Watchers’ ambassador, surprises members with a video call to celebrate their successes. The much-loved British television personality talks candidly to WW members about their weight loss and wellness journey, and congratulates them on reaching their #WWMilestoneMoments.

Alison, who is already seeing the benefits of following the WW programme, checks in on WW members from across the country to celebrate their inspiring achievements, including a couple who combined have lost 100lbs, a woman who now feels confident enough to wear a bikini and a member who has transformed her life by gaining the confidence to become a personal trainer. 

Alison who has been a WW ambassador since April said: “I had a blast calling these incredible people, to listen to their stories and celebrate their success. I am on my own journey with WW and I know how much commitment it takes to live a healthy lifestyle, but when you start seeing those results it makes it all worthwhile. Reaching out to other members who are doing the same as me has given me such a buzz. This programme works really well for me and easily fits in with my on-the-go lifestyle, and I am feeling fantastic. Do you know what, these guys inspire me!”

Alison caught up with Mike Freeman, 60, who has lost over 10 stone through following the WW programme. When Mike joined WW, he was suffering from Type 2 diabetes, as well as ‘fatty liver,’ and was at risk of contracting non-alcoholic liver cirrhosis. After shedding almost half of his body weight, Mike says he now feels like a whole different person. “My confidence has grown immeasurably since I began my WW journey. When I first joined, I could barely walk up a flight of stairs without being out of breath. Now, I can walk my dogs and do all kinds of exercise – it’s amazing how much energy I have.”

Alison also spoke with Maria Dawson, a WW member who’s hopeful of becoming a mother in future. Having been told that she would need to lower her BMI in order to have IVF treatment, Maria sought out her nearest WW Workshop and her partner Ben also joined to support her. “I knew that when I joined WW I would have to make some big lifestyle changes, but they’ve made me feel so much better. I’ve been able to lose two stone in weight and I am now closer than ever to my goal weight! I’m very excited for what the future holds.” 

Alison herself has already made some healthier lifestyle changes since being on the WW programme. “Thanks to WW I’ve got a new lease of life. I’m eating healthier, have more energy, and I’m even taking part in some form of exercise every day. I’ve also been inspired by the thousands of members on the WW online community, Connect, who regularly share updates on their journeys and I really believe that we need to spread this positive feeling beyond members and into the wider community. I’m glad I got the chance to find out more about the inspirational journeys of the 11 WW members and I can’t wait to get reading other #WWMilestoneMoments!”
