Sarah, 28 

A little competition is a great motivator 

You could say that how I looked on my wedding day was down to sibling rivalry. I kept looking at my sister, Laura, who was shrinking in size and growing in confidence thanks to Weight Watchers, and thinking: ‘If she can do it, why can’t I?’ The reality is, she was my inspiration. 



Name: Sarah 

Weight loss: 3st 11lb 

Was: 15st 9lb 

Now: 11st 12lb 

Age: 28

Height: 5’4″ 

Time taken so far: 2 years 4 months 

How she did it: Weekly meeting with her Leader, Sharon



Have a goal in mind 

At more than 15st, I knew I needed to lose some weight if I wanted to feel amazing at my wedding. When our Mum came on board, we became a great threesome. I set up a WhatsApp group for the three of us, so we could share recipes and show off the healthy dinners we cooked. 

Mix things up 

Last Christmas, I made the fruitcake instead of Mum. I decided to try a healthier Weight Watchers fruitcake recipe, and it was a huge success. Where there’s a will, there’s a way! 

Celebrate your successes 

When I had my final wedding dress fitting, the sales assistant asked me to turn to the side. ‘Look at the size of your waist,’ she gasped. ‘It’s tiny!’ I couldn’t believe it either. I’m healthier, happier and closer to my mum and sister than ever.
