Daisy Wynn, 23, from the 5.30pm Thursday group, lost a 5st 3.5lbs in just 30 weeks.

She shared with the group about her struggles with weight most her life and about how she finally feels she has overcome these hurdles and with the group support she is confident she will reach her target weight.

Racheal Long, 40, from the Thursday 7.30pm group, reached her target weight loss of 4st 2,5lbs. She said: “I never could have dreamt that I’d be in this position when I first began my weight loss journey.

“Losing weight has made such a big difference to me. I now exercise regularly, my health is better, I have more energy, and this means I am more involved with my children and a better mum.”

Carol Woodman, 71, foom the Friday 9.30am group, was crowned winner of the competition with her 2,5 stone loss to reach her target weight.

She said: “I know a lot of people worry about joining a slimming club because they don’t know what to expect.

“Right from the first moment I walked into my Slimming World group I felt comfortable though, and the support I’ve received has been amazing.

“I look forward to going each week to catch up with all of my new friends and share tips, recipes and advice. I just love it!”

The Cranbrook Slimming World group is run by Kirsty Bailey.

She said: “I’m so proud of each one of these amazing woman.

“They are a huge inspiration to everyone in our group and I hope they inspire other women – and men – in Cranbrook to change their lives in the same way.”

The Cranbrook Slimming World group is held every Thursday at 5.30pm and 7.30pm and Friday at 9.30am at the Younghayes Centre in Cranbrook.
