Woman ‘too big for theme park rides’ loses 8 stone cutting out three things

Weight loss advice shared by Steve Miller in 2019

A mum has told how her children inspired her to lose eight stone – and how it’s transformed her life.

Natalie was left upset when she couldn’t go on theme park rides with her kids as she was too big to fit on them.

Other fun activities most parents take for granted, like trampolining, also proved impossible.

So she decided to take drastic action, cutting out some simple pleasures, with dramatic results.

She said she decided she needed to lose weight “mainly due to lack of confidence in all areas of life and also for the physical and mental health benefits”.

However, she admitted her children were her biggest motivation.

Natalie explained: “I wanted to take my children out and do fun things and found I was held back from that due to my weight.

“[The weight] limited on things like trampolining and not being able to fit in rides at the theme park.

“Things needed to change drastically,” she said.

Natalie managed to lose weight by following the Slimming World plan but she did it “from home and without going to a group”.

“I weighed myself every Monday,” she said.

Natalie also admitted that cutting out on three things helped her speed up the process.

“I completely cut out any sweet treats and takeaways, I had no alcohol and consistently stuck to my diet plan.

“In one year I lost eight stone and am currently in the process of losing two more to complete a 10 stone loss,” she explained.

Natalie now feels “absolutely amazing”.

“I have gained confidence, I believe in myself, I have willpower and know that I can do it.

“I can take my children out and enjoy whatever activities we choose to do.

“I can enjoy every part of my life without worrying about my weight stopping me from doing things.

“I feel 100 times healthier and energised.”

She also feels much more confident to do things out of her comfort zone she would have never done before.

“I wouldn’t hesitate now.

“When I was heavier I’d say no to most things that meant leaving the house.

“Now I like to enjoy date nights with my husband and nights out with friends.

“I don’t worry about what clothes I can fit in or who’s going to be judging me on my weight,” she said.
