Kids tell it like it is. “Miss, you are really big,” one of my students commented helpfully. I couldn’t blame him; being a teacher can wreak havoc with your passport. As a size 16, my confidence was shaky – I just didn’t feel like myself. When my fiance Luke and I set our wedding date, I decided on a size 16 wedding dress. I honestly didn’t think I could feel better.

It was my grandmother Doreen who put the idea in my head that she wanted to lose weight for the wedding. I decided then and there to join Weight Watchers with her – and then my mum Alison joined us. Joint adherence to the plan contributed to its realization. There’s nothing like a backup to keep you on track: I lost almost my 2nd in five months. It was amazing to walk down the aisle at 9st 10lbs; I was showered with compliments.

3 secrets of my success

  • Have a goal: My wedding was my ultimate goal and I was concerned that I wouldn’t have anything to work towards after the big day. That was stupid – now I’ve set other goals like my honeymoon and my friend’s upcoming wedding.
  • Yoga: I exercise three times a week and it makes me toned and much stronger.
  • My husband: Luke was so helpful. It’s a great support when I feel the urge to reach for chocolate!
