Claire's life takes on a new dimension
Claire's story has attracted considerable publicity. News of her achievement has featured in Central and BBC News, local media (a feature on Claire will appear in the Leicester Mercury in the New Year), and BBC Radio 4 Hometruths with John Peel. She has also recently been the Guest Speaker on the Women's Springboard programme.
Her two-year journey from being a size 24 to bordering on a size 12 started when she had to ask an air stewardess for an extension to her seatbelt. Since losing nine and a half stone, she now enjoys regular exercise. She took part in the Flora Light Challenge for Women in September and raised over £400 for Epilepsy Action.
"I am a glutton for punishment and I'm now training to attempt a 10k run early next year. "There's no stopping me now!"
