Suzanne Payne helped hundreds of local Thame residents towards a healthier weight and lifestyle – and now she has been recognised for her outstanding service to slimmers in the area.

Last week Suzanne was awarded Weight Watchers Diamond Leader status at the regional Weight Watchers conference in Wales.

The award, which celebrates Leaders who have provided exceptional support to their members during their weight loss journey; is only given out once every two years to a select group of Leaders across the country.

This year alone, Suzanne has helped her members shed approximately 625 Stone and has led hundreds of the members to successfully shed 5% or more of their weight.

Thame meeting member Lara Collen says the accolade is very well-deserved: Suzanne is wonderful! She is an inspiration to many of us and gives us great tips, tricks and support to help us achieve our weight loss goals. I have lost four Stone with Suzanne and I’ve never felt better!” So much so that I have also become a leader for Chinnor.

Weight Watchers UK Operations Director Samantha Rhodes, who made the award to Suzanne said: “At the heart of Weight Watchers success are inspiring Leaders like Suzanne.

Suzanne has been with Weight Watchers for six years – firstly as a member who successfully lost 6 Stone and then as a Leader, running five meetings a week in Thame, Chinnor & Stokenchurch. 

We are delighted to have her as part of the team and immensely proud of the difference she makes in her local community!”

It is the 2nd time Suzanne has been awarded Diamond Leader status and she is thrilled.

“I’m so proud of my members and how well they’ve done; and to get this award for doing something I love is amazing!”

Suzanne Payne runs meetings on: Mons @ 6.30pm in Stokenchurch, Tues @ 9.30am & 6.30pm in Thame, Weds @ 7pm in Woodstock, Thurs @ 7pm in Chinnor & Sat @ 10am in Abingdon.
