Taxi driver Shaun Daniels, from Badersfield, near Coltishall, has gone from 18st 10.5lbs to 12st 8.5lbs.#

He joined Badersfield Slimming World group after his doctor discussed the GP Referral Scheme with him.

He said: "Deep down I'd been unhappy with my weight for some time but it took me a long time to face up to it.

"I didn't know what my mates would think but, once they realised I could still have a beer, they started to take an interest and when they see me eating steak and homemade chips, they ask how it's possible to eat like that and still lose weight."

The group meets every Thursday at Battle of Britain Memorial Hall. For more information, call Jane Keil on 07437 672 231.
