Lynne H lost 3st
- Starting weight: 12st 7lbs
- Current weight: 9st 7lbs
I have more energy than ever before.
Wet suits aren't the most attractive outfits as they stick to every lump and bump and really show off your figure. Tired of feeling frumpy and old, and dreading wearing a wet suit on an upcoming holiday, Lynne decided to join the Gi plan and lost 3 stone and 3 dress sizes.
Lynne tells us her story…
Why did you want to lose weight?
The thought of putting on a wet suit during a surfing holiday was horrible. I was beginning to feel like a frumpy, slightly over the hill, approaching 60 year old.
Everyone has told me how fabulous I look and they are amazed

Has losing weight made a difference to your life?
I feel so much younger and really determined to stay as young as possible for as long as possible. Losing weight has made me open to challenges - for example, I joined in a ‘Go Ape’ activity. Also, I plan to undertake the National 3 Peaks challenge in July (Ben Nevis, ScaFell Pike and Snowdonia in 3 days).
Did you include exercise in your weight loss regime?
I've always been fairly active, but it’s a lot easier now. I took up Pilates at the same time as I started the diet; attending regularly inspires me to stay on track. I’ve never been able to jog, but I recently covered 2 miles in my first jogging attempt. I have masses of energy.
Are you confident about maintaining your current weight?
I can’t pretend it’s easy – I reached my target weight almost a year ago and this is the first time I’ve kept the weight off...I just celebrated my one year anniversary.
How do you view yourself now?
In pretty good shape for someone only a few years off 60.
How have your family and friends reacted to your weight loss?
Everyone has told me how fabulous I look and they are amazed.
