Braintree: Mum's weight battle to halve her size
5:00pm Tuesday 9th October 2012 in News
A family photograph on New Year's Eve spurred a mum's mission to drop from a size 30 to a 16.
Nikki Rains, 35, had type two diabetes, high blood pressure and arthritis in her left knee.
The smallest amount of exercise left her needing to sit in front of a fan to cool down because she would be trickling with sweat.
She is 16st 6lb and no longer on blood pressure medication. Her target is to be 12.5st and a size 16.
Full story in tomorrow's Braintree and Witham Times.
