A couple have shed the combined weight of one person after being spurred on by their daughter’s wedding.

Mark and Lesley Lodge, of Heron Way, Mayland, decided to shed the pounds last June and have lost a combined 9st 7lbs.

Daughter Sam’s wedding last September added extra motivation.

Mark, 53, set his target weight at 13st 5lb and has now lost 6st 1lb.

Lesley, 52, has lost 3.5st and has another 3st to go to meet her target weight of 11st.

The couple joined the Southminster Slimming World group, where they have been crowned couple of the year, and they often picked up the slimmer of the week accolade.
