“During my first marriage I suffered domestic violence. I had 11 miscarriages during that time and I ended up eating to get me through.
“My second husband was the love of my life, I adored him and we had such a perfect marriage and two beautiful children. Then one day my perfect life came crumbling down. My wonderful husband suffered a massive heart attack and died. I was completely devastated. How could I live without out him? Yet again, I turned to my best friend always waiting for me in kitchen…food!
“I felt like I needed to escape and run away from all the heartache, so I moved to Liverpool. I wanted to start a new life for me and my children. Unfortunately, my old friend food followed with me.
“I settled really well in Liverpool but I felt extremely lonely and needed someone to love me and feel wanted. I foolishly married my 3rd husband who turned out to be a controlling and intimidating abuser. He controlled every aspect of mine and my children’s lives.
“My self-esteem and confidence completely disappeared but my clothes size continued to grow and I was a size 28 plus.
“In October 2016 I decided to take back control of my life and I filed for divorce. Then, after seeing a photo of myself Christmas shopping, I decided to take control of my health. My daughter had commented that ‘mummy had lost her spark’. I no longer wanted to see a huge, hefty, sad woman every time I looked at myself.
“I already heard of CWP but after doing further research and reading so many inspirational stories, I found my wonderful Consultant, Marie. Because I was a single mum we worked out that Step 2 would be best for me as I could easily afford it and it would allow me to eat a healthy meal with my children. I was so determined to succeed and I’m proud to say that I lost weight every week, even while on holiday, birthday celebrations and during stressful periods when previous I would have comfort ate. The products were so tasty and it didn’t feel like I was on a diet.
I couldn’t afford the gym so I would go to our local park and use the equipment there. I can now run, play football with the kids, and easily swim 100 lengths.
“However, the greatest feeling was being able to go on fairground rides with my children.
CWP and my Consultant made me believe in myself and has given me the confidence to realise that I do not need anyone else to love me, because I now love myself.
