so its been a struggle coping on my own with our two young,
energetic sons, Sonnie aged 4 and Leo aged 20 months."
boys were huge when they were born weighing in at 9lb11oz and
10lb1oz so I had a couple of whoppers! After having my second
child, I really struggled. I was overweight, my feet were swollen

of tips and encouragement. Once on the programme, I began to eat
5 small meals a day, drink much more water and cut out the coffee.
I'm not sure I even found it hard to lose the weight as I received
so much support, advice and encouragement from my coach but also
from people around me. I could see and feel the results very quickly
so that also helped to motivate me."
says that she now feels like a completely different woman. "I
have the energy and zest for life to give to my children, as well
as confidence and a new found love for clothes shopping! My shopping
trips are now completely different. I have the confidence to try
on anything and know it will fit, feel and look good."
