Slimmers keep it in the family
by David Simister

FOUR members of the same family have ended 2012 slimmer than when they started after shedding the pounds with a weight loss group.

After Kath Cobain and Dave Atkinson , from Tarleton, lost more than seven stone between them in nine months with the village's Slimming World group, they managed to inspire David's parents Jim and Nora Atkinson to join them at the group, who themselves lost a total of three stone.

Jim said: “At first I was nervous about joining a slimming club but I just want people to know there’s nothing to be scared about, everyone was so friendly and supportive from day one and now we look forward to going every week.

”I think what really worked for us was losing weight together, it meant that we spurred each other on and stayed motivated. And I suppose there’s been a little bit of healthy competition too!“

Kath and David have been named the group's Man and Woman of the Year in the 2012 competitions, while David has also been named as the group's greatest loser thanks to his efforts.

The club has its meetings every Tuesday at 5.30pm and 7.30pm at Tarleton Bowling and Social Club. To find out more call Marie on 07712 043480.
