Losing It! Breathing easy!

Was… 17st 3lb Now… 10st 8lb
‘But, Mum, you are,’ replied my son.
Harsh, but he was right. I’d been fat for years. Struggled to keep up with my grandchildren.
My son was really worried, as I also had emphysema and Type 2 diabetes.
He’d lost weight with the Cambridge Weight Plan, so he signed me up too!
I started in January 2011, weighing 17st 3lb, but due to my diabetes, I couldn’t have just shakes and soups. I’d have porridge, soup and salad. I lost 4lb the first week, 18lb in six weeks.
When the losses tailed off, I went down to 1,000 cal a day. Tough, but by November, I’d lost over 6st!
Now I’m off the diabetes meds, and my breathing has improved so much that I can walk for miles.
I feel like a new woman – no longer a fatty, and no longer old!Like the Chat website? Subscribe to our magazine and you will be able to access our latest comprehensive content!
