Sarah Kemp, 32, from Great Yarmouth was given a wake up call in December 2013, when she was diagnosed with a mild case of sepsis.

At the time she had type two diabetes - injecting insulin five times a day - and could not be bothered to change her weight.

Following discussions with her GP, she was offered a Slimming World referral and has not looked back since.

She has gone from a dress size 22 to a 12 and only has to have one injection a day.
