Barbara is a mum of three and grandmother from Dunstable.
Since the age of 18, she has struggled with her weight. In recent years, the stress of fighting cancer and induced menopause have taken their toll and the pounds have piled on. At only 5ft 2 she now weighs nearly 15 stone.
As a Senior Operations Manager at a Rugby Club, she is constantly surrounded by nutritionists and dietitians, yet finds it impossible to control her own food habits, normally comfort eating as a way of coping with stress.
As well as Slimming World and Weight Watchers, Barbara has tried every fad diet going in her desperate attempts to lose weight! All she wants is to be an active, energetic person before turning 50 next year.
