Sum­mer break is mak­ing it tough

But Diane is bat­tling on to shed weight

Rutherglen Reformer - - Health Matters - Kenny Smith

Cathkin woman Diane Hughes is clos­ing in on her 50lbs weight loss tar­get.

Ear­lier this year, the Re­former told the story of Diane Hughes, a sin­gle mother of four who al­ways strug­gled with her weight - un­til now.

Af­ter years of yo yo-ing with her weight, she made the com­mit­ment to join a class, sign­ing up with Lynda Kadegis’ Weight Watch­ers group in King’s Park, and has now lost 44lbs.

Diana ad­mits it’s been a tough few weeks re­cently, as she has had her chil­dren, aged 16, eight, six and two, at home.

She said: “That’s 44lbs I’ve lost now, which is 12 more since I last fea­tured in the Re­former. But it’s re­ally tough just now with the chil­dren not at school, as I’ve got to put my life on hold. Right now, I’m hav­ing to fight for ev­ery sin­gle pound.

“I know I’ve still got a long way to go, and I was hop­ing to lose more, but some­times, it’s just not pos­si­ble.

“My mo­ti­va­tion is def­i­nitely still there, and I’m do­ing the best I can, but with the kids around, it’s not as easy to ex­er­cise and go to the gym, which I’d nor­mally do when they are at school. I’m not able to get the ex­er­cise I’d like to get, but I’m still fol­low­ing the eat­ing plan, 100 per cent - it’s just the ex­er­cis­ing that I’m strug­gling with just now.”

Lynda added: “Weight loss isn’t easy for Diane. But she wants this, and it is work­ing for her.

“This is her time to change her life, and with her hard work and the sup­port of our meet­ing she will def­i­nitely get to where she wants to be. ”

Diane con­cluded: “I’m work­ing hard at it, and know there’s still a long way to go, but I know my goals are achiev­able with Lynda, who’s just such a great sup­port.

“The weather be­ing so rub­bish isn’t help­ing ei­ther, mak­ing it harder to go out. I love my kids, but I’m look­ing for­ward to the schools go­ing back!”
