Josie Gibson is astonished by how far she's come


Josie Gibson has her 28th birthday on 24 January and she’s looking forward to celebrating with fiancé Luke Sanwo.

‘I’ve been thinking all week about where I was 10 years ago,’ Josie, 27, tells us.

‘My mum threw me a surprise 18th party at a local pub – I loved it, but was off my face for most of it.

‘I was a size 18, bored, stuck in a bad relationship and working two jobs – putting together tumble dryers and shredding paper for animal bedding in a factory.

‘I only thought as far forward as pay day or Friday night.

‘Don’t get me wrong, I was having a proper laugh and I loved it.

‘But having my own house, my own column in a fantastic mag, the bloke of my dreams and my own fitness DVD… if someone had told me I’d have all that by the time I was 28, I’d have asked what they were on!

‘As I near 30 and before I book myself in for a boob job and Botox, let me tell you this: no matter who you are or where you are, if you want to change your life, you can.’
