A COUPLE of super slimmers from Wymondham will be competing for a national title.
Katie and Mark Fairhead have lost an impressive 19st 3lb and celebrated their success on St Valentine's Day after being crowned Wymondham's Mr and Mrs Slimming World 2009.
Mrs Smith started the ball rolling when she joined a local group, losing 9st 7lb and dropping eight dress sizes, while her husband has shed 9st 10lb and 10in from his waist.
She said: "It's definitely helped that we've been doing it together, because we've been able to encourage each other. I've also had lots of great support from the rest of the Slimming World group and our consultant Debbie. Every week I look forward to going to the group and sharing recipes and ideas. We have so much fun."
Mr Smith said he decided to join his wife on the slimming plan to offer support. "I love curries and roast dinners and I can still enjoy them, which is brilliant," he said.
The national final will be held at Slimming World's head office on March 8. The top prize is a week's holiday at a luxury spa resort in Cyprus or �2,000 cash.
