Size 8 Gemma who now weighs 8st 5½lb, used to tip the scales at 12st 5½lb and wear a dress size 18, says: “I haven’t had one flare-up since I started the plan.  It’s so wonderful – I can wear pretty, short-sleeved tops for the first time since I was a child without feeling self-conscious about my skin.”

Pilling on the weight . . .

Gemma before her transformationIt was taking her steroid medication for the psoriasis
that led Gemma to put on weight in the first place.  She continued to pile on the pounds throughout her teenage years and when she met her husband, Rich, she weighed 11st and wore size 12-14 clothes.  bottles of tablets pillsMoving in together caused Gemma’s weight to escalate even more as they enjoyed their fat-laden meals together.

On joining at her local JM Fitness class in Polegate last year, Gemma said;  “I wanted a class that offered exercise as well as diet advice and Jo, who ran the class, was brilliant.” Within a month of joining the class, Gemma had lost her first stone.  She then reached her next goal of 11 stone for a black-tie ball she attended within the next few weeks.

Reaching her target . . !

Gemma reached her target weight just eight months after initially joining the class and has maintained her new weight ever since.    “Now I can wear girly clothes – and all without medication.  It’s brilliant what a healthy lifestyle and diet can do for you,” adds Gemma.
