Tracylee Lufflum is looking forward to this Christmas party season more than most after losing three stone and being named Louth’s ‘Ms Slinky’ 2014.

The 34-year-old has dropped three dress sizes since joining Jane Rylands-Bolton’s Slimming World group, and now her stunning transformation has seen her fellow slimmers vote for her as their group’s representative in the national weight loss competition.

Tracylee said: “I was already really looking forward to this Christmas and finally feeling glamorous enough to wear the outfits I always dreamed of. Winning the title of Ms Slinky means I have even more to celebrate and I know this festive season will be even more special.”

Tracylee, who wore a dress size 14 at her heaviest and is now down to dress size 8-10, says she was surprised and delighted when she was announced as the Meridian Slimming World group’s winner.

Tracyelee will be putting her new-found fitness to good use on the dance floor at this year’s Christmas parties.

She said: “Christmas is a time of year for getting dressed up and having a good time. Before I lost weight I would dread it though, because I could never find anything to wear on nights out and I would feel uncomfortable and out of place, that’s if I didn’t make an excuse to avoid socialising completely. This year I’ll be accepting every invitation I receive and instead of hiding in baggy or black clothes, I’ll be showing off my new figure.”

• Go to the Meridian Leisure Centre (Wednesday, 9.30am) or Trinity Centre (Thursdays, 5.30pm or 7.30pm) to join Slimming World.
