Three slimmers are each half the men they used to be after shedding more than 30 stone between them.

Gareth Bowley, Darrell Mitchell and Dan Crowder all won places in Slimming World’s Man of the Year 2014 contest after their impressive losses.

Gareth, aged 36, from Dinnington, lost 13st 5lbs, going from 25st 13lbs to 12st 8lbs, while Darrell, aged 41, from Dodworth near Barnsley, shed 8st 2lbs - both in just over two years. Darrell slimmed from 22st 4lbs to 14st 2lbs.

Gareth said: “When I first walked through the doors I was worried that, as a man, I’d be the odd one out. It was nothing like that though.

“Everyone was very friendly and made a big effort to make me feel welcome.”

The third slimmer, Dan, aged 33, from Worksop, has lost 9st 2.5lbs having gone from 24st 13.5lbs to 15st 11lbs in four years after joining a group in Eckington.
