From a size 18 to a size 10 – Mablethorpe’s Anna Postlewaite is a shining example of how exercise and a healthy diet can transform your life forever.
This time last year Anna was struggling to enjoy the everyday things in life. A size 18, she was more than three-stone heavier than she is today and suffered from increasing amounts of back pain.
“It was getting to the stage where I didn’t want to go out as I hated the way I looked,” recalled Anna.
At 42, Anna knew that for better health as the years went on she had to do something – so she adopted a Slimming World eating programme and walked into Mablethorpe’s Station Sports Centre for the very first time.
She has never looked back and just a few months down the line, she is fitter and healthier than ever before.
Anna is now at the centre four or five times in the evenings and has made new friends too, with her husband Graham and 17-year-old daughter Bethanie very pleased with the ‘new Anna’.
“Everyone is so proud of me. I went back to see relatives in Italy this year and they just couldn’t believe it.
“If there is anyone out there who was in my position and reads this, I would say just do it. It doesn’t matter how old you are or how fit – there are people who will help and support you,” added Anna.
