40-year old Lorraine Marcer from Alvaston, Derby, who used to weigh 20st 8lb and wear a dress size 24/26, has not only lost vast amounts of weight at ALIVE classes, but more importantly she has maintained her loss and is enjoying life more now than ever before.
Lorraine now weighs a healthy 12st 2lb and wears a dress size 12/14, which means she has lost a total of 7st 6lb.
“I am thrilled that Lorraine achieved a superb weight loss and she is now much fitter, trimmer and healthier!”
Says Lorraine: “When I went to the doctors with a pain in my foot, she said it was due to me being overweight and asked if I’d ever considered weight-loss surgery. I was so shocked it inspired me to do something about the weight that had crept on gradually over the past 14 years.”
Mother-of-two Lorraine joined ALIVE Fitness 2009 and found that once people started noticing she was losing weight it spurred her on to keep going with the diet. “I love going to the classes and have a lot of friends there,” says Lorraine who has maintained her weight by continuing to attend the classes ever since. She helps to take the cash at the Spondon Class on a Wednesday night and attends 4 sometimes 5 classes per week.
“My weight loss has changed my life dramatically and I am a totally different person now. I have so much energy and recently climbed up Snowdon. I even had to wait for some of the group to catch me up, whereas before I lost weight I would never have attempted it.
Other achievements have been an abseil and a sky dive. The world is literally her ouster!
“I can now do so much more with my children, such as going on bike rides to the park and having races with them and going to theme parks because I know I can go on all the rides and fit into the seats!”
