Two ladies have transformed their lives after losing an incredible 12 and a half stones between them.
Mother of one Rachel Catton, 29, and Rebecca Harrison, 35, both from Soham, have shed the weight since they joined Soham’s Slimming World club, which is run by Diane Anderson.
When Mrs Catton joined slimming world in April 2013, she weighed 19st.
Since then, through her hard work and with the support of the group, she has lost six and a half stone.
She said: “I would have struggled to lose weight on my own, but being part of a group was the key to my success.

Mrs Harrison has been a member of the group since June last year.
On joining she weighed 19st but her transformation has been every bit as impressive as Mrs Catton’s.
The nursery nurse, who has shed 6st, hopes other ladies will follow in her footsteps and be inspired to get healthier.
She said: “My top tips are don’t give up, if you have a bad day then you can always start again the next day.
“You need to persevere, some weeks will be harder than others but keep going.”
