"I could barely walk at all and I was so unhappy.

"Losing weight has made such a big difference to my life. My health has improved, I have more energy, I'm happier and I feel more comfortable in my own skin."

Mrs Lang won the group's 'Woman of the Year' award two years running for her achievements and said she would like stay at her current weight for life.

She said: "I feel like a different woman to the one who walked into Slimming World a few years ago.

"I remember feeling like I would never be happy in my own skin again, but I've realised that when people believe in you - and you believe in yourself - you can do anything you set your mind to."

Hollie Barrett, who runs the Oulton Community Centre group, added: "I'm so proud of Margaret, what she's achieved is nothing short of incredible."
