Sam, from Bridgwater, Somerset, who used to weigh 12st 12lb and wear a dress size 18, is featured in the July/ August issue of Rosemary Conley Diet & Fitness magazine, on sale now. Sam’s slimming success is also featured on Rosemary Conley’s online TV channel, www.rosemaryconley.tv
Sam had been bigger than her friends since the age of 18 and piled on more weight when she had her two children, who are now 18 and 13 years of age. Puddings were Sam’s downfall – “the naughtier, the better,” says Sam.
In 2005, Sam was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and despite her doctor’s warning that her weight would add to the risk factors associated with the condition, telling her to cut down on desserts and eat more fruit and vegetables, rather than follow his advice, Sam got depressed and comfort ate. “I’d eat more because I was upset about my weight and it became a vicious circle,” adds Sam.
When Sam married for the second time in 2006, she weighed 12st 12lb and wore a dress size 18 but it wasn’t until she saw a photograph of herself at her 40th birthday party in January 2010 that she vowed to lose weight. “My shoulders were hunched over, I had a double chin and my size 18 clothing felt tight,” says Sam.
Whilst Sam tried to lose weight on her own by counting calories, any weight she lost soon piled back on and it wasn’t until she joined Rosemary Conley’s online slimming club in January 2011 that she saw any lasting success. Within the first month Sam lost 9lb. “I loved having a supportive chat room at my finger tips. Inputting a lower weight each week into my progress graph also kept me on track,” adds Sam.
“By the time I went to see Take That in June 2011 I weighed 10st and buying a size 10 band T-shirt was a highlight for me,” says Sam.
