A MUM of four from Stafford says sticking to a healthy diet has helped her lose 11 stone.

Emily Rennie, from Aster Drive, went from 19 st 7lb to 8st 7 lb over four years, during which time she also had children.

She told the Newsletter: “When I was 17 I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease, a condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive system.

“I only weighed about six stone because the condition made it hard to gain weight. But I was put on steroids to reduce the symptoms, and that made me put on about five stone over a few months.”

Emily, 30, has been through four pregnancies and she tried to diet, but it never lasted until she tried the Weight Watchers diet.

She added: “I can eat whatever I want as long as I count it in my daily intake. It’s amazing what a difference healthy eating can make.

“Before, when I was putting on weight, I would also eat unhealthy snack foods and I don’t anymore. Instead I have salads and lots of fruit and vegetables.

“I do go running now and then but my weight loss is mainly down to eating the right food.

“Now I can play with my kids without getting tired and my children understand the value of healthy eating.”

Emily attended a Weight Watchers group at the Frank Jordan Community Centre in Stone.
