A dad from Whittlesey who wanted to get fitter so he could be more active with his son has lost more than four stone in a year.
Robert Evans joined Slimming World at the Eastrea Centre at the end of January 2020 because "being overweight was getting in the way of him being active with my son".
In his first week, Robert lost five pounds and continued his journey despite lockdown hitting in March. He carried on to achieve his four stone award.
Having been in group every week, Robert is now heading towards his four-and-a-half stone award after getting back on track following Christmas and losing half a stone in the first two weeks of January.
He said: "I would like to thank my consultant Anna Foster and the members of the group for helping me make those changes to his lifestyle.
