Slimming World was founded in Alfreton, Derbyshire in 1969 by Margaret Miles-Bramwell, who remains the driving force behind the company today.
Margaret had struggled with her own weight since childhood and she understood that people who are overweight carry a double burden – the physical burden of excess weight and the sometimes far heavier burden of shame and self-criticism.
Margaret’s mission was to create a brand‐new approach to weight management. The programmes at the time relied on hunger, restriction and humiliation, and Margaret had a vision for a positive, practical system of support to help people learn new habits and achieve long-term success. It would be an approach based on freedom from hunger, and freedom from humiliation and guilt. From the first meeting, held in a church hall in Alfreton, to becoming the UK and Ireland’s favourite way to lose weight, Slimming World has been on an incredible journey over the last 50 years.
