I’ve been in contact for a while now on Twitter. She would constantly message me for nutrition/fitness advice. Hannah literally started from scratch and used twitter as an effective tool to gain information and see results. I am very happy that I was able to track her progress and witness her transformation. Good work Hannah! :)

1 – Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you accomplished.
My name is Hannah and I have always been a little bit big and the journey started when I looked at the picture of me in the black dress. I started out weighing 13 stone (182 lbs) and today I am 9 stone 8lbs (135 lbs)

2 – What inspired you to take action and make this incredible change? 
Before my journey I thought I looked slim in that dress but comparing the photos I realize how big I actually was. After looking at this picture however I decided to take action whilst I still can and It feels amazing to have accomplished something I thought was just a dream. 
 
3 – Did you find it difficult to stay on track during the process? 
During the process I had days where I went off track but I used that as motivation to work harder, I didn’t beat myself up over eating something I was craving but after I got up and worked it off, I still have treats but I balance it out. It’s a constant learning curve, if you aren’t sure about something just eat it and see what affect it has on your body. 
 
4 – What helped you stick with it and not give up? Because I know it can get tough.
Every time I wanted to give up I looked at the old photo of me and then a picture of the body I dreamed of having and it  gave me the motivation I needed to keep on track. 
 
5 – Were your friends and family encouraging you during the experience? If so, do you find it helped you stay motivated and kept you going?
Family and friends are always going to be encouraging no matter what, my mum in particular was determined for me to do it however they used to tell me that I didn’t need to lose any more or I’m fine as I am but that isn’t what I needed, I’d rather them be straight and tell me I need to lose it to give me that extra motivation.
 
6. What are some of the benefits you got from the whole experience?
The biggest benefit I have got from this experience is my clear skin, I have always suffered with spot outbreaks but this new lifestyle has given me clear skin and I can now even go without make up!!!
 
7 – There is so many options for people to lose weight but many are still finding it difficult to achieve  What exactly did you do to lose that weight?
I have tried the fad diets like slim fast and yes it’s a quick fix but once you stop it, the weight comes back on and more, it gives you really bad side effects too. In order for me to be successful in my journey it was all about clean eating and regular exercise. I eat lots of home made soups, fruit and vegetables, grilled lean meat combined with complex carbs. My shopping cart has gone from processed frozen pizzas to fresh fish of the fish counter! 
 
8 – If you were able to go back in time before you made the change what advice would you give yourself?
I would advise myself to just do it and never give up because I wasted so much time and I used to tell myself I was slim and that it didn’t bother me when actually it was the most horrible thing ever being trapped in a fat body. 
 
9 – Do you have any advice for those who don’t know how to get started?
The main advice I give is to go confidentially in the direction of your dream, if it seems too hard, start off with small goals this could be from taking the stairs instead of the elevator at work, small changes will make a big difference. If the journey seems long and scary break it down and it will be amazing! 
 
10 – You have an inspiring story! Do you have any last words you’d like to share with anyone?
The final words I give out are the never ever give up, it isn’t going to be easy but nothing worth having is easy so fight through it and you’ll be a much stronger person at the end!
