Super slimmers in Heckington have been motoring to their goals - losing the equivalent weight of a Ford Mondeo car in just over a year.
The members of the Heckington Slimming World group are now 1,590kg lighter under the watchful eye of consultant Mickala Day took over the group 16 months ago, and have also managed to lose over 17stone, or 242lbs, this month alone.
One such member is Paul Carter, who has lost five stone 8lb to drop from size 42 to 34 inch trousers in less than a year.
He said: “Before I joined Slimming World I thought losing weight meant going to the gym and counting calories. But now I know it’s about making healthier choices about food and becoming a bit more active.
“It’s brilliant to celebrate together as well because that’s how we’ve been losing weight – together.”
Mickala said: “I’m delighted that my members have lost weight so beautifully. It has made a big difference to their lives and to their whole families’ lives, and all of them are happier and healthier now.”
Slimming World members lose weight by following their Food Optimising eating plan which encourages them to fill up on healthy but satisfying foods such as pasta, rice, potatoes, lean meat and fish, pulses and fruit and veg.
They also attend weekly meetings to support each other as they slim down.
