When did you join Be Strong?
Tell us a little about yourself and why you decided to make a change to your lifestyle?
I feel my biggest motivator of joining Be Strong was seeing other people’s success and a change in those people’s perception of weight loss. I thought what have I got to loose, I’l go along and have a bit of me time and do this for me!
What made you gain weight in the first place?
I had never got to a point where I felt huge but I was conscious I had a very unhealthy relationship with food and a great lack of exercise and I didn’t want to carry on down that path!
How much weight have you lost?
Tell us how you did it
I didn’t give up! I promised myself this was a lifestyle change and really invested in that! I tracked food initially and set exercise plans and upheld them.

I walked up Old man of Coniston, took a liking to putting in my headphones and walking the doggy and developed a healthy relationship with food.
