A woman who lost six stone amd 12.5lb in a year has been named the Attleborough Slimming World 'Woman of the Year'.

Rosalyne Harris, 26, said she was thrilled with the achievement, which came after she joined the group in August last year.

Ms Harris said she had gone from a dress size 20 to a 12 over the period.

She said: 'When I started out I never dreamt I'd be able to achieve all that I have.

'It's changed my life. My health is better, I have more energy and I'm much happier now – I definitely feel more comfortable in my own skin.'

Ms Harris said she had felt her confidence grow as her waistline shrank throughout the year.

She said: 'I remember feeling like there was no hope when it came to my weight but I've realised that when people believe in you – and you believe in yourself – you can do anything you set your mind to.

Jenni Lotarius, who runs Attleborough's Monday evening Slimming World groups, said: 'I'm so proud of Rosalyne.

'She's a fantastic ambassador for Slimming World and what she's achieved is nothing short of incredible.

'She's a huge inspiration to everyone in our group and I hope she inspires other women – and men – in Attleborough to change their lives in the same way.'

The group meets at the Methodist church in London Road at 5.30pm and 7.30pm, call 01953 529985 or 07917 866082 for more information.
