A super slimmer who lost three stone in three months has been rewarded for maintaining the loss for a year.

Jackie Holden, 44, of Northey View, Heybridge, joined Maldon’s Slimming World group in 2013 and managed to not only shed the pounds but keep them off since.

She has been chosen as the group’s Diamond Member of the year, which is awarded to the most inspirational member who has lost weight and maintained their new shape.

The slimming group meet at Maldon and Tiptree FC, Park Drive, every Saturday at 8.30 am and 10.30am.
