Super slimmer passes on weight loss secrets

A SLIMMER from Little Canfield has managed to inspire friends and family with her dramatic weight loss and is now set to share her secrets.

Cara West lost a massive five stone through the Slimming World Program after seeing a picture of herself dressed as a bridesmaid in 2007.

Shocked at her appearance she said: “Seeing that photo was the wakeup call I needed to do something about my weight.”

In 2007 she joined the slimming world group in Harlow – a move that she says changed her life.

“I lost five pounds in the first week and then lost weight regularly,” she said. “The pounds turned into stones in no time.”

Cara won the prestigious ‘Woman of the year’ award after moving to Little Canfield and continuing her weight loss journey at the Takeley Slimming World Group nearby.

She explained: “The secret of my success was definitely having a warm and friendly bunch of people behind me and staying in a group was critical in my weight loss, as well as a great night out.”
