Michelle was unhappy about her size but lacked the motivation required to lose weight because she had no focus. But then, her mother booked a trip for the two of them and her aunt to go to Kenya. Realising she was bigger than her mum, she decided to join Weight Watchers Online and reach her goal in time to look good for her trip.
Both her mum and her aunt had joined Weight Watchers and Michelle observed they’re eating habits, and how well they were doing. This inspired her to follow suit and she soon realised that she could do it successfully too.

Joining Weight Watchers Online was perfect for Michelle, because it taught her to eat the right foods. She knew that as long as she kept track of her allowance using ProPoints Tracker she would succeed. She also loved the fact that Weight Watchers Online was open 24/7!
And her advice is to be moderate and realistic, making the most of lower ProPoints value foods and Filling & Healthy foods that keep you feeling fuller for longer.
Michelle reached her original Goal Weight of 10st 4lb in time for her trip to Kenya - this took her 6 months, but soon after that she set herself another goal: her wedding day! And lost another 8lb.
"I found the plan really easy to follow and I saw the results immediately,” she says. “People asked me how I stayed motivated using Weight Watchers Online. It was simple: I was losing weight!"
And the benefits are countless, more energy (longer dog walks!), more self-assurance and sexier clothes!
Was it a Perfect Wedding Day?
"I had an absolutely fantastic day, the sun was shining, I was surrounded by my family and friends and I was marrying my soul mate. What more could a girl ask for?!
I felt like a million dollars and couldn’t stop smiling. The weight loss gave me a real boost and the confidence to wear a fitted dress with a completely open back panel. I’ve never had so many compliments, the biggest was the look on Iain’s face when I walked in.
Planning the wedding and counting down to the big day was a real incentive to maintain my weight. I would not be who I am now without the help of Weight Watchers Online." Visit www.weightwatchers.co.uk/signup to sign up to Weight Watchers online today for FREE, when you buy the 3 month plan.
