A weight loss plan that involves therapy helped a bride to lose six and a half stone for her wedding.
Leah Forshaw, 38, from London who is appearing on Say Yes To the Dress tonight, lost an amazing six stone and seven pounds.
The stunning bride said that getting her weight under control has been a lifelong battle.
The Project Manager was used to gorging on a shop-bought porridge and a calorie-laden sandwich for lunch.
However, beginning a new diet plan saw Leah shrink from 16st 9lbs and a dress size 18 to 10st 2lbs and a petite dress size 8 to 10.
Leah said: “I came to the realisation that my unhealthy relationship with food was not only making me feel depressed but that it could eventually rub off on my 4-year-old son.
“We would spend a lot of our time together sat in front of the TV eating junk but I desperately wanted to be a good role model for him and to be able to run in the park, take him swimming and to be more active.”
Leah switched to LighterLife, which includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help dieters overcome unhealthy eating patterns.
She said: “The LighterLife group support helped me unravel the reasons behind why I was reaching for food.
“The Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques I’ve learned have been fundamental to my weight loss success, and I no longer feel like I did, constantly trying to diet which took so much of my head space up.”
Leah helps to keep her weight down by switching to homemade porridge instead of a shop-bought version.
She also keep a healthy snack bar in her bag incase she gets hungry.
Leah reached her goal weight of 10st 2lb in December 2016.
She said: “This is the slimmest I have been in my life.
“As a family our days out no longer revolve around food, instead you’ll find us at the local swimming pool.
“I’m getting married on the 21st December and can’t wait to wear the dress of my dreams.
“I didn’t lose weight for my wedding, I lost weight for life.”
Another woman revealed recently how she lost an amazing six stone with one weight loss diet plan.
Shelly Parks, 34, from Barnsley, is now a stunning body builder, but she was not always in such great shape.
She ballooned to a size 20 after undergoing two gruelling rounds of IVF.
