There's a lot less that comes between David and Sharon Phillips these days.

And after losing a total of 6st 9lb the Dereham duo have made it to the national finals of the Mr & Mrs Slimming World 2008 competition.

They were amongst 26 couples from all over the UK to attend the Slimming World's head office in Derbyshire, where they received champagne and certificates to congratulate them for their achievement. The 26 couples lost a staggering 185 stone 5lb between them.

David & Sharon, who attend the Dereham Slimming World group, said: “We were delighted to get through to the national final of the competition and hear everyone's stories. We both follow Food Optimising, Slimming World's healthy eating plan and have been amazed at how much we can eat and lose still weight!”

Louise Rayner who runs the group said “I'm so proud of David and Sharon; they've done really well and the whole group are really excited that they've got so far in the national competition. They are fantastic role models for all of us.”
