Super slimmer Lesley Richardson has continued her incredible weight loss journey after reaching the semi-final of Slimming World’s Woman of the Year competition.
The mum of seven from Mildenhall booked her place in the semi-final of the event held at Slimming World headquarters in Alfreton in Derbyshire on Sunday, October 6, after winning the Suffolk, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire regional round in Peterborough on Sunday.
Since joining the Mildenhall branch of the national group, which is run by Donna Cooper, Mrs Richardson has seen her waistline shrink after losing a staggering 17st 1lb.
“It just amazing to see Lesley selected as the winner of the district competition as her weight loss story is truly incredible,” said Donna.
“She now goes to Derbyshire next month with a great chance of making it through to the final.”
The Mildenhall branch also saw Trudy Kent, who has lost 10st 1lb, and Ruth Gatward, who has shed 7st 1lb, make it through to last 12 which made up Sunday’s district final.
“For a group the size of Mildenhall to have three members reach a district final against bigger groups is amazing,” said Donna.
“In the 18 years I have been running Slimming World seeing three of my group in the final 12 of a district final was one of my proudest moments.”
