25 stone lighter

A Coventry dad of two who lost a staggering 25 stone is gearing up to run the London Marathon.

Roberto Enrieu who is 6ft 4 was crowned Slimming World's Man of the year in 2009 when he dropped from 41st 8½lb to 16st 8½lb

He told told Heart that he never imagined he'd be fit enough to stand on the start line of a marathon:

"When i was nearlt 42 stone walking up a set of stairs was like trying to conquer Everest, putting in the training that ive had to put in to do this marathon has completely changed my life."

Roberto is running the 30th London Marathon to raise money for the children's charity the NSPCC.
