A Hull woman has lost an incredible 9st in just nine months, dropping from a size 30 to a size 14. Alison Collinson joined her local Slimming World group in March, after becoming increasingly unhappy with her size and in a “really dark place”. In nine months, she dropped eight dress sizes, and has a new lease of life thanks to her hard work. She said: “My weight was affecting my life in so many ways and I was in a really dark place. My marriage and family life were suffering as I was unable to participate in family days out and even the simplest tasks at home were really difficult. “I struggled to walk more than a few steps without being breathless and having pain in my knees and feet.
