Ch­eryl Blythe from Basil­don, Es­sex, lost 14stone in 18 months and was crowned win­ner at the Slim­ming World Woman of the Year ball in Birm­ing­ham ICC on Novem­ber 7.

On the night, hun­dreds of con­sul­tants, man­agers and ten women, who had lost a phe­nom­e­nal amount of weight, were cel­e­brated for their achieve­ments.

Carol Downes, from the Ward­lawhill Parish Church, was in­spired by the women on the night and cal­cu­lated that mem­bers in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang had lost 32,234lbs, which equates to 2,302 stone.

She said: “Their sto­ries of their weight loss jour­neys were ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic and the win­ner Ch­eryl Blythe, lost an amaz­ing 14 stone in 18 months.

“She had been told by her GP she would die by the time she was 45 if she did not lose some weight.

“It got me think­ing and I have asked the lo­cal Cam­bus­lang and Ruther­glen con­sul­tants to give me their to­tal weight losses from their groups so far this year.

“I am ab­so­lutely stag­gered at the amount lo­cals have lost in 10 months fol­low­ing the Slim­ming World healthy eat­ing plan.

“Think of the dif­fer­ence Christ­mas is go­ing to be this year for those who are health­ier, slim­mer, fit­ter and ready for the hec­tic time ahead.”
