MEMBERS of a slimming group have lost almost 300st between them – and celebrated at an Indian restaurant.

Cowplain and Waterlooville Slimming World groups spent 2013 working to shed the fat and as an end-of-year treat they got together at The Shalimar Indian, in Waterlooville.

Sharon Mann, who runs the groups, said: ‘My Slimming World members are proof anything is possible and now they’re looking and feeling fantastic. I’m really proud of them all.’

Kerry Gurd, from Waterlooville, has lost 6st 13.5lbs since January 2013,and says she was determined not to have another year of feeling overweight and frumpy and couldn’t wait to wear a skimpy dress at the party.

‘I can’t believe how different I feel in such a short time,’ Kerry said.

‘I haven’t had to do anything drastic either, just make small easy changes to my eating and activity levels. I’ve learnt how to make healthy choices and I know I’ve got the tools to be slim for life, so I’m confident I’ll be able to keep the weight off.’
