James Evans has just been awarded Southwell's Man of the Year by Slimming World after losing an amazing five and a half stones in just 10 months.

"The weight loss has completely changed my life," explained James. "I was in constant pain before with my back, but could never tell anyone as I knew they would just say lose weight." The weight loss has also completely reversed James' diabetes.

The Southwell and Farnsfield Slimming World groups are run by Allison Winson, who had initially joined Slimming World a member.

"James has done absolutely amazing and we're all so very proud of him," said Allison. "I had also tried to lose weight so many times before by following numerous diets, but they were never sustainable because I'd always get tired of restricting what I ate. But Slimming World is different. The eating plan encourages you to eat lots of tasty, filling foods and no foods are banned so there's no deprivation."

The Farnsfield group meets Mondays at 5.30pm and 7pm at Farnsfield Cricket Club and the Southwell Group on Tuesdays at 5pm and 6.30pm at the Baptist Church on Nottingham Road. Call Allison on 07538 899196 for more details.
