A MOTHER and daughter are hoping they can be an inspiration to others after shedding a combined 11 stones.
Aleshea McIntosh and mother-in-law Susan from Worsthorne were so upset seeing themselves in party pictures that they took up a Weight Watchers challenge at the Rainhall Centre in Barnoldswick.
Since then, the duo have not looked back with Aleshea losing 6.5st. Susan dropping 4.5st.
As well as enjoying a slimmer look, Susan has pleased her doctor and is reaping the health benefits while Aleshea has rediscovered a love of fashion.
Aleshea has also found a new hobby in running and is so keen on keeping in shape, she is now a Weight Watchers leader at Rainhall Centre sessions on Wednesdays at 6pm and on Saturdays at 10-30am.
Aleshea said: “We are both proof that you can lose weight and keep it off and still enjoy life, including tempting times like summer holidays, birthdays and celebrations.”
Susan added: “I can’t begin to tell you how much better I feel as a result of losing 4.5 stones.
“From increased energy to loads more confidence; I’ve never felt better. I challenge all Barnoldswick residents to join me and feel fantastic.”
