Looking after four children and studying for a degree had caused Claire’s weight to rocket but with her hectic lifestyle, she was too busy to notice how big she was getting. It was only when she saw an unflattering photograph of herself that she finally faced up to her figure.
Claire knew the diet plan worked as she had previously lost weight with the help of a local Rosemary Conley Diet & Fitness Club in 1996 after her second child was born. Claire bought a copy of Rosemary Conley’s diet book in May 2011 and succeeded in shedding almost 3 stone in just 7 months. By following the recipes in the Rosemary Conley Diet & Fitness magazine, and exercising in the gym every day, Claire succeeded in shedding a further 3lb and has maintained her weight for the past year.
When she first weighed in on the family’s Wii Fit board, Claire was horrified to see her virtual character on screen inflated to signal that she was overweight. “I was mortified,” says Claire, who used to avoid looking in mirrors. And when she joined the gym, Claire went home in tears after her first aerobics class as it was the first time in years she had seen herself in a mirror. “I tried to position myself behind other people but I was so big my curves still poked out,” adds Claire.
When Claire reached her target weight, confetti rained down on her Wii Fit character. As well as publishing her first novel, Twisted Fate, in February 2012, which, says Claire, “was something I never would have had the confidence to do without the help of Rosemary Conley,” she has gained a 2:1 degree. “The thought of my graduation ceremony later this year has kept me at my target weight, adds Claire. “I have also recently trained as a volunteer for a charity, which involves giving presentations and workshops to children, something I would never have contemplated before.”
