A 24-year-old woman who has lost more than six stone has been named as one of Newark Slimming World’s Women Of The Year 2017.

Holly Fixter, of Newark, has lost 6st 4lbs in a year and gone from a dress size 18 to a ten after joining the group that meets at Charles Street Methodist Church Hall.

“When I started I never dreamt that I would be able to achieve all that I have,” Holly said.

“Losing the weight has made such a big difference. My health is better. I have more energy and I’m much happier.”

She lost 6lbs in her first week and as the weight started to come off her fitness improved and she now loves circuit training.

Holly progresses to the regional finals of the competition putting her in the running for the national title, where there is a £3,000 prize or a five-day holiday in Dubai.

Group leader Ashleigh Barlow said Holly was a fantastic ambassador for Slimming World.

“She is a huge inspiration to everyone in our group and I hope she inspires others to change their lives in the same way,” Ashleigh said.
