Clare said: “I have always struggled with my weight but in the past I have turned a blind eye and made excuses, like saying I’m big boned.

“I could see the scales creeping further upwards and I just thought to myself when are they going to stop?

“I’m just going to keep growing until it kills me!

“Last summer when I was at the children’s fair, at school, I visited the health trainer’s table and she told me about a 12-week referral for Weight Watchers.

“Fourteen months later and I’m standing here 105 pounds lighter and feeling amazing.

“My leader Lisa has been amazing, especially when I haven’t had a great week she reminds me how far I have come already and to draw a line and move on.

“I didn’t think I had health problems from my weight but since losing over seven stone I have had no more backache or heartburn.

“It has given my confidence where before I was lacking, I can now just grab anything to wear and not think about whether it makes me look too big.”
