Thurlstone Woman Loses More Than Her Daughter's Body Weight

Janine's huge weight loss Janine's huge weight loss

A DETERMINED Thurlstone woman has shed more than her daughter's total body weight and is determined to help others beat the bulge.

Janine Lishman-Peat dropped from 18st 13lbs to 10st 12lbs after joining weight loss classes in May 2009.

The 57-year-old has now qualified as a Weightwatchers leader and hopes to help others reach their target weights.

"I can't think of a single way it hasn't changed my life," Janine said. " It's changed everything. I've always been a fairly confident person anyway but there's no stopping me now."

Janine's motivation to lose weight came from a health check-up where she was told she had high blood pressure and cholesterol, sugar in her blood and was a certainty to become diabetic.

Good for you and well done, Janine. It's easy for us readers to see the results but there's a lot of hard work gone into what you've achieved. Also, hats off to you for using your experience to help others. It's stories like this that restore my faith in humanity.
