‘I shouldn’t read them, but I do. I’ve had such awful comments.
‘I thought: “Let’s do something.”
‘I’ve got so much more confidence now.’
Craig has now lost almost 4st and is doing it slowly, going to the gym three or four times a week.

‘I still love going out with my friends, which always ends in a hangover!

‘I don’t eat a lot of fat and I’ve cut right down on sugar.
‘Eggs are the way forward!’
