Dannielle: I lost 5th – and I couldn’t have done it without my dogs!

How walking her four-legged friends (and moving more) led to cover star Dannielle’s weight loss


My mum Natasha and brother Henry have always been fit and active, enjoying rock climbing and horse riding. But as someone who hated exercise, I was the odd one out. Weight Watchers helped me realize that being active would not only benefit my weight loss but also my health – I have polycystic ovary syndrome and was at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.


Knowing that I needed to move more, I decided to start walking my family’s two dogs, Coco and Bea, more often. Coco the Chihuahua is growing up now, but last year Bea the Staffordshire Bull Terrier joined the family and she is a huge bundle of energy!

Extra motivation

Having two dogs gives me a reason to move every day and they have made a huge difference in my weight loss. We go out for about two hours every day and cover five or more miles at a time. Dogs have turned me from the girl who always avoided exercise to someone who misses it when it’s not part of the day. And I lost 5th place in the process!
