Real life weight loss stories: Vicky Martin
Takeaways have a lot to answer for! I started gaining weight when I was 18, the same time as I starting going out. Along with booze came pizzas, burgers and kebabs!
When I got married in 2006 I was 15 stone, but we started eating takeaways at least three times a week - two years later I weighed 17st 12lb.
