A STAFFORD woman is showing off a new look after shedding the pounds for summer.
Carol Flint, 62, who dubbed herself a Telly Tubby, has shed an impressive 4st 2.5lbs.
The mum-of-two and grandmother, from Burton Bank Lane, had piled on weight and began to lose confidence.
After suffering a stroke and other health problems Carol decided to do something about it and with the support of husband Alan and her two sons, she joined Slimming World in Rising Brook.
On her first weigh-in in July last year Carol, who is 5ft 4ins, tipped the scales at 14st 2lb.
During her first week she lost 8lbs.
She said: “I am retired now but it’s made such a difference to my health. I can breathe easily, my blood pressure is down and there is less stress on my back and legs too.
"Now perhaps I will be able to get my garden sorted out as I do love gardening.”
