Lockdown focus takes the weight off Alan




A member of an Elmswell slimming group who stuck to his plan has revealed he lost five-and-a-half stone during lockdown.

Alan Green first joined Slimming World, based at Blackbourne Community Centre in March, after he was told his weight was stopping him from having knee surgery.

But even though lockdown struck, that did not stop the engineer from his aim and keeping to healthy eating.

He said: “I am chuffed to bits. I can now have my knee operations without the need of any gastric bypass, providing I can maintain my weight loss, and saves me having to go through worrying gastric surgery.”

Alan plans to carry on his weight loss and thanked everyone at the group for their continued support.
