Wisbech slimmer wins competition after incredible weight loss
A WOMAN from Wisbech is celebrating after winning a local slimming competition, losing more than six stone in just seven months.
Anna Twidale’s huge loss of 6 stone 6.5lb won her the title of Slimming World Elme Hall Hotel Wisbech’s Woman of the Year 2010.
The 37 year-old dropped from 19 stone to 12 stone 8lb, inspiring fellow slimmers and changing her life.
She said: “Obesity never seems to be out of the news these days and I was afraid that I was fast becoming one of the statistics. I felt constantly tired, unfit and unhappy. My confidence had slipped away years ago.
“This time I’ve changed the way I shop, cook, eat and exercise. I’ve totally changed my attitude to food and activity.
