Jen Phillips shed the pounds during a Weight Watchers programme and can finally wear a dress – the last time she wore one was on her wedding day 19 years ago.
Jen said: “I was asked to be godmother to a friend’s daughter, along with two of my friends. They were discussing excitedly what they were going to wear and my heart sank. I wanted to wear a dress and needed to lose weight – I’d not worn a dress since my wedding 19 years previously.
“The christening was about 10 weeks away and in those first 10 weeks I lost 2 stone and wore a dress for the first time and loved it. I had got the bug and set myself small goals, things I wanted to lose a certain amount of weight for and that’s how I did it. I am now absolutely thrilled to have reached the weight I set out to achieve and I’ve never felt better.”
