Slimmer sheds 13-stone in five years

A mum-of-two lost so much weight her own relatives did not recognise her after shedding nearly 13 stone in the space of five years.

Danni Lyness was determined to lose the weight she gained after having her second child in time for a holiday to her native Croatia this summer.

She joined a gym, began to swim and run regularly and took up an eating plan with Weight Watchers in an effort to become a 'yummy mummy' and wear a bikini with confidence.

Just one week before she was due to fly in July, proud Danni, of Crummock Close, Burnham, hit her target weight of eight stone, 13 pounds.

Danni, who also works for Weight Watchers in St Peters Road, Maidenhead, had her challenge increased by having a chef for a husband but was able to resist temptation and surprise her family when she visited Zagreb.

She said: "A lot of my relatives did not recognise me at the airport and walked straight past me.

"They were looking at me as if to say 'who are you?'"
