THREE women are celebrating being the ‘greatest loser’ after shedding a whopping 17 1/2 stone between them.

Genine Mathews, Nichola Temlett and Sharron Griffiths lost the weight after attending Slimming World classes at the Baptist Church in Bridgwater and Victoria Park Community Centre.

Genine has been going to the club for two years and has lost 5st 8lb. She said: “It’s all about a different way of eating. I actually eat more now than I used to.”

Nichola has been going for almost three years and has lost 6st. She said: “I’m a lot more active now and I’m able to play with my children without getting tired.”

Sharron Griffiths has only been attending Slimming World for 17 months but has lost over 6st. She said: “It’s been great having the support of a group, which I think really helps rather than dieting alone. If we can do it, anyone can.”
