Father, mother and son Paul, Joann and Lee Dale have between them been hailed as super slimmers after losing a combined weight of just over nine stones.

The trio from Great Whelnetham joined up with their local Slimming World group at the village’s community centre in a bid to shed the pounds in a bid to reverse health issues they were suffering from.

And in the past seven months they have lost a total of nine stone three pounds.

Joann said: “We all got breathless and had no energy. We had severe stomach problems and I had diabetes which was out of control. We found doing everyday things difficult because the weight got in the way.

“We have committed to seeing it succeed and we never thought we would turn into healthy eaters but it seems to have happened.

“We are all so happy with our weight loss and feel healthier than we have done in a lot of years. “Breathlessness is a thing of the past and we are fitter now, going for long walks and bike rides which we found difficult before.

“The stomach problems have disappeared and the diabetes is totally under control, to the point that, if things continue as they are, medication may be stopped.”
