Steve Little went from 20 to 14 stone over six months in 2016 and has since opened his own Slimming World group in Norwich.

The 33-year-old started the group in January of last year after developing a passion for helping others lose weight. He trained as a consultant and now coaches others to achieve their target size.

'My weight was affecting my health and my self-confidence and I knew I needed to make a change. Not only did I lose weight but I got a brand new career that I love too.'

Mr Little runs the group every Wednesday at Wensum Junior School.

'Having been a member myself I know exactly how people are feeling, whether that's being wracked with nerves when they walk into the group for the first time, feeling frustrated if they haven't lost as much weight as they expected to, or feeling fabulous when they reach their target weight.'

He is now in the running to be crowned Slimming World's Consultant Slimmer of the Year and will go forward to the national finals at Slimming World's Derbyshire head office in February.

The winner bags a £2,000 prize as well as the national title.
