Dorset Ladies Dropping the Pounds

If you're trying to shake off one or two pounds after some Easter excess, spare a thought for 6 local ladies who are celebrating a monumental weight loss.

Between them they've shed 47 stone.

The slimmers have been rewarded with a makeover at the Dorchester Beauty Therapy and Skin Care Centre and a photo shoot with Greg Cameron Day Photography.

Rose from the Cambridge Weight Plan in Durngate Street says being a healthy weight is life changing.

"Everyone likes to look good but the big thing is health, and that's a massive issue down here. It's getting worse.  Because I lost my weight I have come off blood pressure tablets.  I can walk again.  I was paralysed after a nasty accident, but because I lost the weight I was able to have an operation.  It changes your life totally."

Jodie Martinez in Bridport lost 5 stone and has 2 to go.  She's says it's given her and her partner new hope of becoming parents:

"We were told that we might not be able to have children naturally but that's pretty much gone now and we can start trying again.  So it's a huge health and lifestyle change."

Debbie Ferris from Weymouth lost 7 stone.

"I've got 8 grandchildren and it means I can run around after them now without getting out of breath.  Losing the weight has changed my life."
