Kelly Evans knew it was time to kick-start her weight loss journey when her size got in the way of her love for rollercoasters.
The 37-year-old would often grab food out of boredom, which led her to tip the scales at 16st 12lbs.
It wasn’t until a trip to Alton Towers when Kelly was horrified to discover the seat on the rollercoaster had become snug.
Now the adrenaline junkie has revealed exclusively how LighterLife helped her to lose 5st in five months.
“My weight crept up after I turned 18”
She said: “My weight crept up after I turned 18. I had stopped exercising and the little bit I was doing came to a complete halt once I brought my first car.
“I then spent my twenties trying diet after diet, attending slimming clubs week after week, aimlessly clapping for people who’d managed to lose half a pound – I was stuck in yo-yo dieting misery.
“As I live alone, I’d grab food most often out of boredom rather than because my stomach was grumbling. Food was something that I used to fill my time.
“Then in August 2018, during a trip to Alton Towers, I was horrified to discover the seat on the rollercoaster had become very snug.
“I visit theme parks about ten times a year – so I just couldn’t let my size stop me from enjoying my life.”
As well as using Foodpacks, Kelly attended LighterLife’s weekly cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) groups.
Since joining the group, she went from gorging on two takeaways a week to cooking for herself.
She explained: “With the tools I’ve learnt in my group, I know that planning ahead is key, and I can finally see how weight maintenance is possible – something I never truly believed before.
“I’m so glad I made the decision to start LighterLife. Losing over 4st has been life-changing and I’ve gone from a size 22 to a 14 and I just feel fab.
“I still can’t quite believe it’s me when I catch a glimpse in the mirror.
“During my journey I set myself the goal of wearing a show-stopping dress to the work Christmas party and although I still had a way to go, it felt incredible to walk in three dress sizes smaller.”
