HUSBAND and wife team Mike and Kim Hitchen have transformed their lives after losing an incredible 20 stone between them.

The Winsford couple met and married during their weight-loss journey which began while they attended Slimming World classes in the town

Mike shed 14.7 stone to reach his target weight, while Kim lost 5.3 stone, with the pair ably supported by Cathy Murphy and members at the Winsford Academy Slimming World class.

The couple love their transformation and say they've never felt happier.

Kim added: “The groups really are where the magic happens, there is no judgement, just lots of friendly sharing hints, tips and ideas.

“Cath has a natural way of talking to her members, understanding the issues they may have and putting them at ease to help them set and achieve their goals.

"We could not have done this without the help of Cath and all the other members in the group."

Mike said: “It has definitely changed our lives; it is not a diet but a healthy way of life.

“Just by making small changes, it made a massive difference and we love the fact that it’s so easy to follow.

“If we can do this, anyone can, putting changes in place soon become life changing habits.”
