A Wisbech couple are seeing less of each other – having lost nearly seven stones between them!

Cara and Paul Holt slimmed down by 6st 12.5lbs with the help of their local Slimming World group and reached the national finals of the organisation’s Couple of the Year 2015 competition.

They believe the secret of their success was getting support from one another at home as well as each week at their Slimming World group in Wisbech.

Cara, 31, who lost 3st 7lbs, said: “We understood how the other person was feeling and didn’t ever feel like we were alone on our weight-loss journey.

“We enjoy cooking together and eat all the same healthy meals too.

“We’re both much more active nowadays too and we enjoy spending time with our family, taking the children on bike rides and going swimming.”

Cara and Paul were voted as their group’s Couple of the Year 2015 by their fellow members. Paul, 39, who has lost 3st 5.5lbs, says: “We feel honoured to have been chosen to represent our group. If I’m honest though, the competition is really just the icing on the cake because we already feel like we’ve won the biggest prize anyway – losing weight has completely changed our lives and we’ve got a healthier future together now.”

Tina Rust, who runs the Wisbech Slimming World group, that Cara and Paul attend, says: “I’m so proud of them both.

“The way that they motivate and inspire one another as well as the other members in the group – and me – is amazing.”
