Jodie Barrett, 34, from London Street, Lowestoft, spent over a decade being unhappy with her own weight.

'I'd always believed it was in my genes and that I was big boned,' said Ms Barrett, 'I truly thought I'd never be able to lose weight.'

After ditching 'fad diets' and joining a Slimming World group in 2014 Ms Barrett went on to successfully lose three stone and has kept the weight off.

In July of this year Ms Barrett became a Slimming World consultant herself, taking over a group in Kirkley. Since she took over the group, just over four months ago, her members have lost 126 Stone all together.
