Logan, my little boy, was my motivation for getting healthy. Without him, I wouldn’t have been so determined to lose weight – especially because in my job at Thorntons, my willpower was low. Whenever I’d get the slightest bit hungry, I’d run straight for snacks like crisps and chocolate. At over 18st, it was clear my eating habits weren’t doing me any favours.
Once I joined WW, I learned how to control my snacking, even when surrounded by chocolate. I realised that I could still eat the foods I loved; I just needed to be a bit smarter about portion control. To help me stay on track, I took WW sweets and fruit to work for when I fancied a nibble. I also started using a pedometer to track my steps and push me to move more.
The first dress size I dropped proved that I’d made the right move. Seeing the weight come off was huge motivation to keep going – and getting to goal felt really sweet. WW didn’t just change my lifestyle; it also helped me learn to love myself. And by keeping a smile on my face and thinking positively, I know I’ll make better choices for life.
