At the same time, I was often binging on junk food. The weight gain made me feel worse and worse about myself.

Gradually I overcame my depression and I managed to watch my diet as well as started exercising again, with help and support from my family and close friends. I then realised exercising could actually help me to destress, get fitter and healthier and so I began to exercise regularly.

I wanted to share with other lovely ladies out there that it’s not all about being thin and perfect, being comfortable in your own skin and healthy is so much more important.
