Judges of a slimming award found by no means slim-pickings from their finalists - not with “amazing” competitors like Tara Day.

A diamond-hard will was the sparkling superpower that helped Tara, of Nelson, to shift a “fabulous” seven stone.

The mother-of-two’s dedication to her goal made her the perfect candidate to represent the Nelson group in the district finals of Slimming World’s Woman of the Year award.

“She embraced the eating plan and completely changed her life around, improving her health no end and is such an inspiration to others,” said Group Leader, Angela Fielden.

“She even came to the group throughout her second pregnancy, as our plan accommodates for that too.”

And the new superwoman look is perfectly timed to mark the start of another chapter in Tara’s life - her 30th birthday on Tuesday, October 3rd.

But the journey has transformed her in other wonderful ways.

“I have watched Tara change so much throughout her Slimming World journey,” Angela added.

“She has become so confident and bubbly and watching her change so much has been an absolute pleasure.”

The Walton Lane group, based in Leeds Road, meets on Thursdays at 5pm and 7pm.
