THIS young woman lost nearly 5st in just a year and a half after saying she always felt "powerless" being overweight.
The 21-year-old never exercised and would eat junk food every day, always feeling sad and different from her friends who she considered to be "well dressed and perfect".
“My life has completely changed, now I'm confident, proud of myself and I know nothing can stop me now”
“I've always been insecure and I've never loved myself and I think that I've always been overweight because I've never seriously loved myself,” she said.
“Before losing weight, I always felt sad, powerless and I thought I could never have the courage to change my life.
But just eighteen months on, the student has swapped junk for clean eating and leads an active lifestyle.
“In 2015, I decided to change my life, I wanted to be happy and feel proud of myself, I started running three times a week and eating healthy," she added.
“I stopped eating junk food, biscuits, cakes and so on but I do sometimes still eat a of pizza or an ice-cream."
