A slimmer from Oakham is ready to start the Christmas party season in style after losing 1st 11lbs and winning a local slimming competition.
Mali Palmer has dropped two dress sizes, going from a size 18 to a 14, and has claimed Oakham’s Slimming World’s Miss Slinky 2013.
The 50-year-old, who lives in Finch Avenue, who has slimmed down from 13st4lbs to a healthy 11st7lbs, was voted for by fellow members of her 5.30pm group and now she is waiting to hear if she has scooped the national title and a £2,000 shopping spree prize.
Slimming World’s annual Miss Slinky competition recognises members who have undergone a huge transformation by becoming slimmer and more confident and who look great in their party outfits too.
Mali said: “I couldn’t believe it when everyone voted me as Miss Slinky. I haven’t felt slinky in years but thanks to Slimming World I am now, and it feels great.
“I’ve always thought of Christmas as the time of year to dress up in something gorgeous and sparkly, but I didn’t feel confident enough and avoided certain shops and styles because of my size too.
“This year I’m going to have lots of fun finding that perfect party outfit.”
