A Weston-super-Mare man who lost six stone in six months hopes to help other people reach their target weight.
Nigel Jenkins, aged 53, feels ‘like a new person’ after taking control of his life by joining a Slimming World group.
Nigel, who is the food and beverage manager at The Royal Hotel, said: “Over four or five years I put on a lot of weight. I had no self-confidence and I felt really bad about myself.
“It all changed when I was working at Christmas and an elderly lady prodded me in the stomach and said I looked pregnant.
“I took back control and joined a group and now I have a new zest for life. I grabbed it with both hands and I have embraced it.”
Nigel now wants to help other people reach their target by launching his own group.
He will hold two groups on a Monday at Weston Rugby Club, in Sunnyside Road, at 5.30pm and 7.30pm and at 9.30am on a Tuesday.
