She explained in the caption: "Celebrating 9 yrs as the ambassador for @lighterlife. When I gave up drinking 10 yrs ago I gained a sweet tooth and very quickly one addiction was in danger of being replaced by another.

The couple have been married since 2013

"I'd put on 2 stone and was aware that my knees were aching and my breathing was impaired. With the help of @lighterlife and working with a mentor, I changed my relationship with food. I lost 2 stone in 2 months and use those tools to this day.

"I also use flexifasting so one sometimes 2 days a week I have only @lighterlife products and that helps maintain my weight."

Denise – a mother of two – continued: "We have become more aware of how carrying excess weight causes so many problems but we're scared to talk about it. It's not about getting into a size 8 or being a skinny minny as my mum used to say.

Denise has spoken candidly about her weight loss

"It's about learning to enjoy food without being controlled by it and @lighterlife helps you to do that. It's also about feeling confident at any age.

"Like I've said a million times. I'm 63 and feel better physically and mentally than I have for years and I'll do swimsuit pics til 'm 90!! I've finally stopped being a people pleaser but that's another story!! Your support on here means so much to me as you know."
