Penny documented her weight loss on Instagram

"During the lockdown, I found myself entering my menopause and the side effects were exaggerated by the anxiety and fear of the virus and the unknown," she explained. "I turned to food and drink as comfort and gained over a stone."

Penny continued: "As a wake up call I shamed myself [into] taking a photo. It worked and with a new diet and exercise, I lost 17lbs and 4 inches off my waist in 8 weeks!!"
