Slimming World members from Lampeter and Newcastle Emlyn decided to take a dip in the sea at Aberporth on Sunday “A few months ago, we had a bet on that if members lost a 100lbs in each group in a week, I was to dye my hair pink” said Slimming World consultant Midge Hoyes, “With the help of my hairdresser Llinos, that was easily sorted but then they decided to up the stakes to lose 150lbs in a week if I would take a dip in the sea. To my amazement the two groups lost an incredible 392lbs or 28 stone in one week!”

So despite very cold weather and an unpredictable weather forecast, eleven members from both groups took a dip. “It’s all a bit of fun and a bit of a celebration really as the members who took part, have lost and incredible 29 stone between them”
