Paul said: “I felt very overweight looking at pictures of myself. I didn’t want our wedding photos to make me feel like that, so I joined a Slimming World group that a friend from work was attending.

“When I joined I was at high risk of diabetes but I am now no longer high risk, plus my asthma has improved and much to Amy’s delight I have stopped snoring!”

Amy said: “I had put on so much weight since meeting Paul. I knew that I needed to lose some weight before the wedding, so I joined him at Bay Tree Farm.”


Paul was named the group’s Man of the Year 2019, and together Paul and Amy were awarded Couple of the Year 2019.
