My dreams of being a mum had been dashed. I had been diagnosed with polycystic ovaries and endometriosis when I was 15 and told I had only a 20 per cent chance of conceiving. When I married we kept trying for a baby but it took every ounce of strength to carry on as I had nine miscarriages, one after the other. With each failed pregnancy, my hope slipped further away.

Then after the last miscarriage, I realised something. I'd been overweight for years and knew I stood a better chance of becoming a mum if I had a healthy BMI. Then we had some amazing news, I was pregnant again. This time my baby was fine and in June I gave birth to our beautiful little boy Kaylan. I'd tried to lose weight before but I always went back to snacking on shortbread in the morning, having a tuna and cheese melt with crisps for lunch and fish fried in butter for dinner. I joined Slimming World weighing 21st 8lb.

I ate Weetabix with skimmed milk for breakfast and a jacket potato with tuna for lunch. When cooking I used low-calorie spray instead of butter. Determined to be the healthiest parent I could, I went back to the group when he was two weeks old. I started walking, pushing the pram everywhere I went and soon built up to five miles a day. Now I'm at my target weight I'm full of energy and I love taking Kaylan to the park with Paul to play. As I watch my son having fun with his dad, my heart swells with happiness that I can be the best version of myself for him.

AS I took my place in Durham Cathedral to watch my elder son Aaron graduate, I tried to ignore the agonising pain my back. I have scoliosis, arthritis of the spine and chronic pain.
I didn't want to spoil Aaron's moment so I grimaced through the ceremony. Lying there, I tried not to cry. For years my condition had left me dependent on carers, as well as help from my children. Without them I couldn't even get to the bathroom as I was in a wheelchair and it took two people to lift me in and out. As a young woman I was slim and active but after a car accident many years ago, I'd had endless problems with my spine.
I worked in education but had to give up my job in because of my condition. Miserable, I turned to chips and takeaway pizzas to cheer me up.beifastturbeivous.ml

Lying in hospital again after Aaron's graduation, I knew I had to improve my health by losing weight - not only for my sake but for my children's too. My mum drove me to my local Slimming World group and as she pushed me in, the members gave me a warm welcome. Four of them helped me on to the scales - I was 14st 2lb. For my next online shop I ordered stacks of fruit, fresh vegetables, fat-free natural yogurt, pasta and rice and in my first week I lost 5lbs.
Within months my life started to change. I still had days when I was exhausted but now I was lighter my daughter could wheel me around town. We'd browse the shops and buy new outfits. Last September after losing 4st I entered a fun run with a buddy system, meaning wheelchair users can be pushed.
We whizzed around the course and came fifth.
Although I'm still in pain and need a care team, losing weight has meant it no longer needs to include my children.
