A Cleckheaton mum has been crowned her local slimming club’s weight loss queen after dropping seven stone.

Sarah Thompson, 33, shed the pounds in just 18 months after joining the Hunsworth Slimming World group.

The inspirational teaching assistant has been named Woman of the Year by the club and also reached the final 18 from 306 entrants into the West Yorkshire district final.

Sarah, a single parent, made drastic changes to her diet and also began the group’s Body Magic exercise classes to achieve her dream weight.

“I was so proud to represent our fabulous group at the district final and met some amazing people who had changed their lives forever. I have so much more confidence and I don’t hide in the corner any more,” said Sarah.

“I now not only enjoy all the healthy eating I have been doing, but also embrace more moderate exercise. Now I am learning to maintain my weight and I know that with the help of my lovely consultant, Paul, the rest of group and the fabulous food optimising plan, I can’t fail and will be slim for life.”

The group meets every Wednesday evening at 5:30pm and 7:30pm and on Saturday mornings from 9am at the Scout Hall, Hunsworth.
