A YOUNG woman has transformed her life by losing a massive six stone in weight.
Lizzie Young, who lives in Chesterfield, had become a dress size 28 and could not bear to look in the mirror when she decided it was finally time to take action.
The 23-year-old has shed the pounds – despite dealing with daily temptation in her job at a Peak District cafe – after joining a diet class in Dronfield.
And she has discovered a new love for fashion, as well as taking part in a Race for Life event.
Lizzie said: “I can’t begin to tell you how much better I feel as a result.
“From increased energy to loads more confidence, I’ve never felt better.
“I challenge all Sheffield residents to join me and feel fantastic.”
Lizzie has been hailed an ‘inspiration’ by the leader of her Weight Watchers class in Dronfield.
Wendy Osborne, who also runs classes in Bradwell, Hope Valley, and is starting a new class in Birley, said: “I am so proud of Lizzie.
“She has been such a huge inspiration to myself and the other members of the Dronfield meeting. She is proof that you can lose weight and keep it off and still enjoy life, including tempting times like summer holidays, birthdays and celebrations.”
Lizzie added: “There is no magic trick or shortcut.
“What made all the difference is the motivation and good advice I got from Wendy and the support and encouragement we all give each other in the meeting.”
The Dronfield meetings take place on Mondays at 6.30pm and Thursdays at 9.30am while the Bradwell class is at 6.30pm on Wednesdays.
