‘I was in a really bad place a few months back, got awful anxiety even when I went to the gym. I was so anxious that people would look and laugh. But I got through it and thought, “No, this is my journey. I’m here for me so I’m not going to worry about anyone else”.

Before anyone starts commenting anything please read what I have to say here before you judge… so I was in a really bad place a few months back, got awful anxiety even when I went to the gym I was so anxious if people would look and laugh, but I got through it and thought, no this is my journey, I'm here for me so Im not going to worry about anyone else but myself and look at the out come, 3 and a half stone lighter now. Before anyone says I've edited it or that's not me or I've had lipo suction. I haven't, and I've done this journey for younger girls to follow my tips and do it the right way. I will be uploading tips very soon on how to loose weight. If anyone says I had lipo coz of the bruise on the side of my hip I got drunk Friday and walked in to a car. I cut my face off because I was so embarrassed of how I looked and so if you look at the next I literally just come back from a run and took a selfie so u can see I don't edit any pics. I worked really hard to get here guys Andu just want to show, if you want it, you lot can do it too ❤️

Another said: ‘Good on you! We all get stuck in a rut and it takes guts to stick to a diet and exercise. Celebs these days just go get surgery to correct all the overeating but you have done it the hard way.’

Clearly overwhelmed, Fran later posted: ‘Thank you all so much for your messages, comments and the phone calls I have received, texts just everything… I can’t wait to help you all lose weight!’

Keep it up, Fran – you look great!
