TWO super slimmers have lost so much weight together they can both fit into an old pair of their “fat” trousers.

Friends Alison Brennan and Paula Edwards have lost six and five stone respectively at their local Slimming World class at Harwood Meadows School.

Mrs Brennan, aged 38, was fed up of going on fad diets in a bid to try and lose some of her 17st 9lb which had crept on over the years due to bad choices, so she started the class in January 2013.

Ms Edwards, aged 38, was so impressed with her friend’s progress she also joined four months later weighing in at 16st 9lbs — and the pair started their synchronised shrinking.

Mrs Brennan, who now weighs 11st 2lbs, said: “I have always yo-yo dieted and I have tried everything to lose weight, but this is the only time I have managed to lose it and keep it off.”

Mum-of-three Ms Edwards, who now weighs 11st 4lbs, said: “I have always been big but after the birth of my third child the weight kept creeping on.

“I have gone from a size 22 to a size 12 to 14 and I feel great. I haven’t been this size since I was 18. I want to lose one more stone then I will be at my target weight.”
