AN Exmouth housewife has shed six stone in weight in a bid to have a baby.

Shelley Popper tipped the scales at a hefty 19st 8lb before shedding the weight so she and husband Shane could start a family.

Mrs Popper said: "I couldn't have done this without Shane. He's been my rock. Every week he says I'm doing so well.

"I don't think my body would have taken pregnancy."

After two years of hard work and dedication the 5ft 3" Slimming World member now weighs in at 13st 5lb after shrinking from a size 26 dress size to a 12 to 14.

She is determined to get down to 12st - the weight she was when she married 10 years ago.

The former lover of junk food followed the slimming club's healthy eating plan in a bid to beat the bulge.

Mrs Popper was shocked into dieting in January 2007 when her mother-in-law showed her photographs - and she did not recognise herself.

She and husband Shane now cycle 40 miles a week together to keep the weight off.
