Total loss 9st 8lbs*

“I have always been a big person, despite eating healthy food. My portions were too big and there were too many 'treats' in between meals.  

“I knew I was overweight, but over the last few years it crept up on me and I realised, at more than 20 stone, clothes weren't just coming up small any more.

“After I had my first child, Josh, I was around 16 stones. I suffered with post-natal depression and anxiety after Finley arrived the scales just kept creeping up and up. I could lose a couple of stone but then would lose motivation and it would all go back on again. 

“By the time Josh was 12 and Finley was six, I couldn't keep up with them. I was scared to take them to theme parks in case I couldn't fit into rides and I would embarrass them and myself. 

“Finley has ASD with PDA and ADHD. He has a fight or flight response and, in summer 2016, he ran off over roads and I couldn't catch him. Luckily Josh was with me and he caught him before he got hurt. I caught up eventually and carried him back, but I could hardly breathe . . . the sweat was dropping off me and I felt mortified. 

“That was my Why. I couldn't let that happen again. 

 “I'm a beautician and one of my clients had lost loads of weight on Cambridge Weight Plan and although I was dubious, I felt like it was the last try at a miracle. At my first appointment I was worried I would be bigger than anyone my new Consultant had seen before and that I would fail.

“Kate put me right at ease, and when I stood on the scales I was shocked it said 20st 10lbs! But even more shocked at my BMI and my waist was 55 inches. I was in a size 26/28. 

“I started on Step 3 because I wanted to eat a meal at night with my boys. The first week went surprisingly well and I was gobsmacked when the scales showed a 10.5lb loss, followed the next week with 4lb . . . I had lost a stone already!

“The weight ticked down and all my family and clients were noticing a difference. It felt amazing! In December 2016, I plucked up the courage to join the gym. I had already lost four stones. I was confident to take Josh to Alton Towers and I got in all the rides.

 “I needed a new challenge. I signed up for a 26.9 mile walk over the Peak District. It was challenging terrain with loads of training ahead of me, all to raise money for Macmillan. I walked and hiked regularly every week while the scales have ticked down and am proud to say I completed it; something I never would have been able to do before Cambridge Weight Plan came into my life. 

“My life has changed so much. I enjoy doing things I never thought possible. I go jogging with the kids now and can keep up (sometimes I even beat them), I have a personal trainer, I go to trampoline parks with the boys, still hike and managed to do a high ropes challenge too! I'm already looking for my next challenge. 

“Thank you Cambridge Weight Plan - you have given me my life back for my boys.”
