A SLIMMER summer awaits two East Grinstead mothers, who have shed seven stone between them.
Kate Edwards and Heidi Weller are among the top weight-loss performers at their local Slimming World branch in the town.
The pair have each tried out other diets in the past, but have never seen the same positive results they are experiencing now.
Kate, 39, who is a stay-at-home mum, who lives in Cranston Road, said: "I have done diets all of my adult life, so I didn't think this would work for me, but it really does.
"So far I have lost 2st 10.5lbs – about a quarter of my body weight.
"I feel much better.
"I have reached my target but I will continue to go to the meetings because I don't want the old ways to creep back in."
Teacher Heidi, also 39, of Lingfield Road, has lost 4st 3.5lbs since she joined the group last July.
She said: "I did other diets years ago, but I'd put the weight back on again.
"I felt I needed to lose a ton of weight because I didn't want to be a fat mother.
"I'm now thinner, I'm much happier in myself and I'm looking forward to the summer not being quite so unhealthy and overweight."
