A MUM who transformed her image after shedding 3 stone 9lb has launched her own weight loss group.

Ami Jones, 32, dropped to a size 10 dress size in 28 weeks when she joined Slimming World in Thurston.

Buoyed by her success and the ease of the programme, she set up her own branch of the company in Lavenham.

After three months, the group already has about 40 members, who have lost 50 stone.

The mother of two, from Rougham, who is also a childminder, said: “I was blown away by Slimming World and how easy it was to lose weight. I’m so proud of my members as it’s such a lovely group. There’s been tears and laughter and the community aspect is more than I could have hoped for. In the first two months, I had the best average weight losses per member of the Bury team.” The group meets at Lavenham Village Hall, in Church Road, every Thursday, at 7.30pm.
