Before I lost weight I had to walk with sticks and I couldn't fit in the seats at the cinema or on rides like rollercoasters.
I once broke a chair at my friend's house, which was mortifying, and I even slept on the floor when we went away because I was so scared the bed wouldn't be able to take my weight.
I've missed so many wonderful moments with my family and I can never get those back, but now I'm determined to make up for lost time and there's so much I want to do.
