Wensum 'Miss Slinky' winner lost 6 stone in one year
A mum from the Norwich area has been recognised by her slimming group for her weight loss achievements this year.
Sarah Carrs, 43, from Costessey, weighed 15 stone and was a size 18 when she joined her local Slimming World group.
Having lost six stone and dropping to a dress size 10, Ms Carrs has now been voted the Wensum Slimming World group’s Miss Slinky 2018 – an annual Slimming World award, along with Mr Sleek, that recognises members who “have transformed both inside and out by becoming healthier and happier, slimmer and more confident”.
Ms Carrs said: “It has been an incredible year as I never imagined that I could’ve lost this much weight.
“I have tried to count calories in the past and never had much success. Going to Slimming World has changed my life and I have made so many new friends.
“It really is a lifestyle not a diet and I can’t thank my consultant Steve enough for giving me a new body and new confidence to match.”
Steve Little, who runs the Wensum group Ms Carrs attends said: “Christmas is a time of year for getting dressed up and having a good time.
“However, I know a lot of my members have told me they’d often dread it because they felt uncomfortable and out of place at parties, which is just so sad. This year I know Sarah will feel completely different from previous years.
“I’ve no doubt that they’ll inspire other people to lose weight too and show that whether you’ve got a little or a lot of weight to lose, slimming down can make a big difference to how you feel about yourself and really boost your confidence.”
