I had had really bad back problems and struggled to walk upstairs, so I knew I had to change for myself and my son, I wanted to enjoy doing things with him and be a good role model for him.

On a typical day I’d eat chocolate, crisps, takeaways and all number of fatty and bad foods to comfort myself if I was feeling low. But I’m much better with food now, with a much more balanced diet.

For example, bran flakes and a yogurt for breakfast, scrambled egg on toast for lunch/chicken salad pitta and spaghetti bolognese/ steak and air fried chips for tea!

I feel so much better about myself. Just as importantly, my mental health is a lot better with the support network from football and I haven’t had back problems since I started losing my weight.
