In August 2011 I was in a car crash and damaged two bottom discs in my spine resulting in surgical intervention, but the operation was not a success and I was left with chronic severe back pain. Due to inactivity and depression, my weight ballooned and at my biggest I was 22 stone, a 44” waist and wearing XXXL clothes. I joined group on 4th April 2016 and I have never looked back! The generous eating plan ensured that I never went hungry, I could still have my favourite meals albeit prepared differently and the weight started to drop off. I lost 5 stones in 6 month and never gained weight through that whole time! There will always be a warm welcome waiting for you with me and I really look forward to meeting you.
