The Secret Of My Success
NAME: Khara Welsh, 27, Saltcoats.
VITAL STATISTICS: I’ve always been curvy. When I was 13, I was 5ft 9in and a size-10 and got bullied for being different. A controlling ex didn’t help my self-esteem and only after our relationship ended did I feel free from judgement. But I wasn’t going out much and I started comfort eating.
MY MOTIVATION: I’d dread holidays, as I’d have to squeeze myself into the seat on the plane and then I’d feel miserable.
MY ACTION PLAN: Last March, I joined Scottish Slimmers. I was shocked to find
I was 18st 3lb, was a size-20/22. I followed its slimming plan and, by eating healthily and watching portion sizes, within a month I was
1st lighter! With a lot to lose, I was encouraged to take it one day at a time and make smaller, achievable targets. It worked!
LOOK AT ME NOW: I now weigh 13st
9lb, a size-12 – and I feel fantastic! When
I went on a mate’s hen do to Marbella earlier this year, I wore a bikini and felt amazing for the first time. I did this for me and for my health. Now I look in the mirror and love the person looking back at me!
