Ex-footballer wins award for weight loss achievement

Former professional footballer Alan Brown has been rewarded for losing a dramatic amount of weight in a short period of time.

Alan’s weight soared and his waistline expanded to 42 inches when his football career ended, but in a bid to get rid of these extra pounds he joined a local slimming club in Alexandria, north of Glasgow, the Lennox Herald reports.

The 27-year-old joined the weight loss club with his fiancee Dionne Craig, 27, and managed to lose four stone in just five months.

Through eating low-fat meals, Dionne also managed to lose 1st 4lbs and now fits into a size 12.

Alan has been rewarded for his achievement by being given the area title of Slimming World’s Man of the Year award.

“Achieving my target is a dream come true, which in January felt a million miles away,” he told the newspaper.

Earlier this week, the Hampshire Chronicle reported that a slimming group from Winchester had collectively lost the weight of a baby elephant.

How much weight would you like to lose over the next five months?
