AN ALCESTER man who has lost more than 80 pounds has been named the town’s Slimming World Man of the Year 2016.
Thomas Dudley joined the club in October last year and has since lost 5st 11lbs, earning him his well deserved title.
The 29 year-old joined the group after his work colleague recommended it and the weight has been dropping off even since.
He said: “Deep down I’d been unhappy with my weight for some time but it took me a long time to face up to it. And then when I did admit to myself that I wanted to lose weight I still didn’t want to ask for help.
“Slimming World helped me to break it down into chunks and by starting small I’ve managed to build up my activity gradually. I have recently gained enough confidence to start going to the gym which I would never of done before. I can honestly say I feel like a different man since losing weight and I’m confident that with Slimming World I will achieve my target weight in the near future.”
Becky Barber, who runs the Alcester Slimming World group said: “ He has done brilliantly and we’re all amazed by his transformation. He’s a real inspiration to the group. We know that many men assume slimming clubs won’t be right for them, but Thomas shows that once they come through the doors they do brilliantly. Like Thomas I would advise anyone who would like to lose weight to find the courage to take that first step.”
The Alcester Slimming World group is held every Thursday at the Jubilee Centre & Fields at 9.30am and 7.00pm.
