A mother from Hampshire who lost more than half of her bodyweight has been named Slimming World Woman of the Year 2013 at the Ritz Hotel in Piccadilly.
Kim Freshwater tipped the scales at almost 29 stone and wore size 38 dresses before shedding 17st 5lb in less than three years to trim down to a size 10. The 45-year-old, from Havant in Hampshire, was severely overweight for nearly four decades.
Kim decided to get into shape after she missed her son's school awards ceremony for fear of breaking the foldaway chairs.
