Young slimmer could be champ

Have your say

A SVELTE young slimmer from Sheffield could be on target to reach a contest’s national finals – and win £2,000 – after losing a massive seven stone in weight.

Emma Birtles, 18, shed the pounds in just five months after joining Slimming World’s group at the methodist church on Hatfield House Lane, Shiregreen.

After been hailed the group’s young slimmer of the year, Emma is heading for the national finals of the competition.

She has already shrank from around 30 stone to around 12 stone during her successful diet.

Della Williams, who runs the Shiregreen group, said: “Everyone is so proud of Emma.

“She is a huge inspiration.

“I hope she will inspire other young people in Sheffield by showing them slimming clubs for people of all ages.”
