A man who lost seven stone has said it is one of the best thing he has done.

Jon Plumb, 43 of Highbury Terrace, Halstead, lost the weight over the course of a year and now wants to encourage other men not to be afraid to do the same.

The product designer said: “I mainly decided to lose weight for health reasons. I just didn’t want to die before I was 55.”

Mr Plumb joined Slimming World to help him and was named Great Cornard’s Slimming World Man of the Year 2014 for his weight loss.
