STRUGGLING with your New Year's resolutions and in need of a boost?

Last year we asked readers to send in their before and after weight loss success pictures to encourage others they can do it too.

And after putting together an incredibly inspirational gallery, we have decided to do the same again this year with our Class of 2018 Super Slimmers.

Click the gallery above to see our super slimmers' pictures and then read below some of the stories behind how they did it in their own words.

There's still time to send in your pictures. Just click on the form below.

Sarah Tootill's story

From 2015 to 2016 I went from 16 stone 5 to 10 stone 5 meaning a total of 6 stone weight loss through running and low calorie diet

I have 2 young children and I found running.

I signed up for the St Helens 10k and never stopped running. 

I decided to change when I had my 2 children as I wanted to be a good role model to them and also have confidence to take them swimming or the park which I felt I didn't have when I was bigger.

Each year I now sign up to different local runs. 

It's good for me and it helps raise money for charity so it's a win win. 

Paul Sankey's story

In my first picture I was 21st in the second one I'm 13st 10lb.

This took around 18 months and since losing the weight I have run 7 half marathons and 1 full marathon.
