Two Suffolk men have shed a total of more than 21st in little over a year – and been named among the country’s top male slimmers for 2015.
Wayne Leech, a 38-year-old lorry driver from Wickham Market, weighed in at 28st 3lb last year – but has shed 11st 11lb since joining Slimming World just one year ago.
And Mark Ripper, 33, from Ipswich, has also lost an impressive 9st 5lb from his 24st starting weight since he first went to Slimming World in January last year.
Now the dramatic change in weight – and shape – has helped both men improve their fitness and confidence. They were so successful, they both reached the semi-finals of Slimming World’s Man of the Year competition.
