A MAN has filled his fridge with awards from his weight loss group after an incredible transformation.

Dave Roberts, from Little Sutton, has lost an incredible five stone in five months at his local Slimming World group at The Woodhey Hotel.

Dave was concerned about his health and worried about his future after a visit to his local GP they advised him to lose weight as they were concerned about his deteriorating health.

Dave said: “I was concerned and worried as I have a beautiful granddaughter and want to make sure I am around to be with her.”

This feeling spurred Dave to join his local Slimming World group and got in touch with John Bruce who runs the Little Sutton groups.

John told the Standard that when Dave first arrived at the sessions, he said he was unsure about how he could lose weight

Within his first month of following the lifestyle plan, he had lost one and a half stone and his fridge has since been decorated with all of his awards – displaying his five stone weight loss for all to see at home and in person.

John, who also lost five and a half stone himself in a short period of time, loves the fact that he can help members to make such a difference to their lives.

He said: “Being overweight or obese is associated with an increased risk of a number of common diseases and causes of premature death, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease and some cancers. The risk of poor health is strongly correlated with body mass index (BMI).

“I am really excited about now officially taking on a second group with two sessions and it’s being relaunched on Monday November 25 at 5 and 7pm.
