Meet the woman who dropped six dress sizes after her move to north Norfolk
A Cromer woman has talked about how she has "turned her life around" having joined a north Norfolk Weight Watchers programme.
Julie Lobb moved to Cromer four years ago and immediately joined her local group based in Sheringham, after she found herself “mortified” that she couldn’t fit into a size 24 outfit.
Mrs Lobb, whose weight at one point reached 17 and a half stone, is now comfortably maintaining her size 12 weight, and is running her own WeightWatchers sessions full time.
Mrs Lobb. 57, said: “What lead to me being my heaviest was a stressful move from Cambridge, My husband and I both left our careers, we wanted a completely fresh start.
“I’d always been telling myself: ‘I don’t want to be fat at 30, I don’t want to be fat at 40, and I felt like life was running away and before I knew it, it’d be over.”
Mrs Lobb now runs two of her own WeightWatchers classes, in North Walsham and Sheringham.
The mother-of-two said: “I still go to my WeightWatchers class and weigh in every week, as still as holding my own.
“The main thing I tell the people that come to my sessions is keep your why close. Sometimes you’ll have a couple of really good weeks and then you’ll have a really tough week and wonder why you’re doing it.”
Mrs Lobb runs her two sessions; one at North Walsham’s Annex at 5.30pm on Thursdays, and one at the Sheringham Community Centre on Saturday mornings at 9.30am.
