Success Weight Loss hosts open house this Thursday in Qualicum Beach

Guests are encouraged to bring non-perishable goods for Manna Homeless Society

Success Weight Loss is celebrating their second birthday this Thursday.

According to a news release issued by Success Weight Loss, the studio has helped Parksville Qualicum Beach residents lose around 3,000 pounds in the last two years — the equivalent of three horses.

To celebrate, they’re inviting past, present and future clients to their open house on Thursday, Sept. 17 from 2-7 p.m. at the Memorial Avenue location in Qualicum Beach.

“We are celebrating the growth and transformation of both our clients and our business,” said Kirstin Bjarnason, a registered nurse and weight loss coach.

Bjarnason is proud that she and her team have helped people lose weight, and the nurse in her equally values the decreased blood pressure and blood sugar levels that come with that weight loss. In fact, that was what drew her to the program in the first place.

“I did the program myself and lost 25 pounds, but what I really liked was the healthy approach to losing weight,” she said. “I just knew I had to share it with others.”

Bjarnason notes that weekly meetings, regular body composition analyses, daily videos, goal-setting rewards and a one-year stabilization follow-up program all help to make certain clients attain and maintain their targets.

Attendees will have the opportunity to sample food, share in clients’ stories and receive a free body composition analysis. Door prizes will be awarded and the first 10 visitors will receive $20 gift certificates.

Guests are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or a pair of socks to support Manna Homeless Society. Success Weight Loss will then donate a portion of each new start from the day.

Success Weight Loss is located at 702B Memorial Avenue in Qualicum Beach. For more information visit www.successweightloss.ca.
