I’m LaLa, a 28-year-old living in Hertfordshire. I have always been one of the bigger ones in my circle of friends. Six months ago, I realised how unhealthy I really was and decided to do something about it. I faced my fear and embarrassment and joined my local Slimming World group.
Since joining Slimming World in March 2017, I have lost two and half stone (more to go until target but over halfway there) and attend the gym regularly. I now want to set myself a challenge to run 5km in the Parallel London event.
I will be running 5km for BBC Children in Need, a charity that is close to my thoughts. I have worked with children for eight years and have seen the difficulties some of them face. Raising money for Children in Need will hopefully help support and encourage children in a positive way.
