Blackpool’s Gail Tyson has helped thousands of residents in Blackpool towards a healthier lifestyle.
And now Gail has been recognised for the eighth time for her outstanding service to Weight Watchers members in the community.
She was awarded Weight Watchers Diamond Leader status at her meeting in Kirkham Conservative Club.
The award, which celebrates a coach’s exceptional support to their members during their Weight Watchers journey, is only given out to a select group of Weight Watchers experts across the country.
In 2017 alone, Gail helped her members shed approximately 1,1872 lbs – with a plan personalised to each member’s age, gender, Body Mass Index and lifestyle.
Gail who has lost 6st herself, has been recognised for her commitment to helping every member achieve their goal.
It is the eighth time Gail has been awarded Diamond Leader status.
Gail said: “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 feeling happy.
“Unlike fad diets and quick fixes, Weight Watchers Flex is the most flexible and liveable programme ever.
“It gives people more freedom to enjoy food. No food is off limits.
“Research shows that with Weight Watchers meetings and online tools you could lose up to seven times more weight than on your own.”
Gail runs 12 Weight Watchers meetings a week across Blackpool and the Fylde coast – including in Bispham, St Annes, Kirkham, Forest Gate and South Shore.
