Helena first started piling on the pounds as a teenager. Anxiety problems caused her to binge eat junk food and gorge constantly on chocolate, crisps and fizzy drinks. She admits that she’d often eat a large pizza to herself during the night.
She would often feel reluctant to go out in public in case people stared or laughed at her.
Helena’s life changed in December 2008 when her grandmother became concerned and took action by contacting a personal trainer called David.
Along with David’s personal training regime, Helena went to psychotherapy and hypnotherapy sessions to help stop her binging.
By December 2010, Helena had lost a staggering 5 stone and quit her job as a child support worker in order to concentrate on losing weight.
Helena now works full time for David’s fitness firm Rapid Hypno Fitness and says: “Thanks to my grandmother, I feel amazing.”
