My story Started way back in 2007. I was 28 years old, I’d had my 2 children by then and my weight and size was growing by around a 1-2 kgs a year since the birth of those children. I had always been a size 14 around 80kg and I was ok with that but by 2007 I was pushing 100kgs and size 16-18.

I have always struggled with my weight since I was a child. I grew up being constantly compared to my twin sister who didn’t have the same weight issues as me. I would always try and make myself be invisible in social situations and not draw attention to my weight by always making sure I was well dressed and always do anything and everything to people please those around me to make them like me despite my weight.
