A new Weight Watchers group in Whitby is seeing a lot less of each other this Valentine’s after collectively losing 200lbs to date.

Elaine Martin, who has been a Weight Watchers leader for 21 years, opened a new class at the Whitby Centre last month.

Elaine said: “I can’t quite believe it, I’m celebrating 21 years as a local Weight Watchers leader that has been helping the local people of EllesmerePort to lose weight and improve their health.”

The Whitby group’s new venue is based in Chester Road.
