The Market Weighton Slimming World Tuesday Night Group has announced its Miss Slinkys and Mr Sleeks after a recent competition.

The competition is one of a number run throughout the calendar year and the rest of the group vote for the winners.

They look at the change in their appearance, their understanding of how the plan has helped those amazing losses, understanding and taking on lifestyle changes, and how they inspire and motivate the rest of the group.

Because there are two sessions on Tuesdays there are four winners.

The four members nominated were Cliff Hancox who has lost 4st 11 lb so far, Kate Davison (4st 2lb), Mandy Lewis, 2st 1.5lb and at her target, and John Parry who lost 4st 1lb and is at his target for the first time in 10 years.

Cliff said: “As the cook of the house I have now learnt to make amazing recipes the slimming world way and the ‘quick and easy chicken curry’ is a family favourite.”

Kate said she can’t believe how a year in group has completely changed her life. With over four stone lost she is loving the plan and the amazing new friendships shes made.

Mandy, one of the group’s target members, has transformed her figure and loves buying new clothes.

John is at the group every week, helping, sharing and supporting his fellow members. He spends plenty of time with his grandchildren. He said: “I wanted to lose weight be healthy and be a granddad, not a picture of a man in a frame on the mantle piece they never knew.”
