A make-up artist dropped five dress sizes after losing the equivalent of nearly 35 bags of sugar in weight.

Helen Guy, 47, of Thoresby Avenue lost five-and-a-half stone over a period of 11 months after attending a Slimming World class in Bridlington.

Helen said: “My weight was just getting ridiculous and I was just really focused at getting rid of it.

“I weighed 14 stone 11.5lb then began losing it slowly, but surely!

“Then 11 months later I had reached my target weight of 9 stone 4lb.

“It’s the best thing I have ever done – absolutely fantastic.”

Helen who is a self-employed make-up artists based in Beverley, added her new slim look has improved her outlook at work.

She said: “I look totally different and dress totally different.

“I wouldn’t say it’s changed the way I work, but I used to dread photographers turning up a wedding parties.

“I would always make sure I was hidden behind someone for the photos!”

Helen also featured in the Slimming World magazine recently and has been told she will appear in the group’s newest promotion.

She added: “It was a great experience, they put me up in a hotel in London and paid for everything for me and the kids.

“It is really great for confidence.”
