Amy: ‘I want to be the best version of myself’

When Amy joined WW in 2014, she wanted to feel better on the inside and look better on the outside.

When I first joined WW five years ago it was because I wanted to lose weight for my wedding. I’d bought a dress that was too small, and was determined to fit into it on the big day.


After I gave birth to my son, Nicholas, now five, I was huge. As a new mum, I felt overwhelmed and sought refuge in chocolate bars and biscuits. My partner, Michael, kept telling me he loved me for who I was, but I didn’t believe it.


It was only when a pair of size-18 jeans didn’t fit me in a changing room one day that I decided enough was enough. I joined WW and stuck to it like my life depended on it. By the time I walked down the aisle in June 2015, my A-line dress was a size 10. I reached goal 10 months after I joined WW and while I regained a little afterwards, I knew I had the tools to find my focus again. And here I am, refocused and following Purple!


I’ve lost a total of 2st 7lb since first joining WW – and 10 of those pounds have been lost since moving onto Purple. Today, I have a new ‘why’ – and that’s to be the best version of myself; to feel better inside and out and to feel like the old me again. I think I lost her for a little while!
