In 2011, a few weeks before I turned 27,
I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Within a year, I’d unexpectedly lost my mum, Lorraine, too. Because of my cancer treatment, I wasn’t sure I’d ever be able to have children, so when I had my little boy Ollie, now three, I was determined to look after myself and be as healthy as possible. Mum had suffered from diabetes and I didn’t want to risk going down the same route. Also, I wanted to do whatever I could to ensure I’d be around to look after Ollie, play football with him and generally keep up with him. Joining Weight Watchers has not only helped me get healthy, it’s allowed me to be the mum Ollie deserves. And, I’m now cancer-free!
‘We used to have a takeaway on Saturday nights, but now I cook a healthy meal for the whole family.’
‘Seeing me eat a wider variety of foods has encouraged my little boy to try new things too.’
‘We love the chicken enchilada recipe – it’s definitely going to be a staple meal for us.’
‘I love that chicken breast, eggs, tuna and beans are now zero Points® foods – they’re our favourites! Weight Watchers Flex® has really encouraged me and my family to eat more healthily.’
‘If you’re worried you’ll have to cook different food for the rest of the family, don’t be! There are loads of tasty meals we all enjoy together.’
‘It’s all about planning ahead and using the right ingredients.’
‘WW Flex has introduced me to ingredients like lentils, kidney beans and chickpeas – I would never have considered cooking with them before!’
‘My fiancé Mark couldn’t be more proud of me – he says he’s got himself a new woman!’
‘Cooking with new ingredients means Mark doesn’t have to restrict himself when he cooks for us, as I’m so much more open to trying different things.’
