Slimmer who lost 10st on diet lands new job as fitness instructor

SUPER slimmer Helena Cameron lost HALF her body weight – and landed a job as a fitness instructor.

Helena, who’s 5ft 6in, weighed 20 stone when she was 25 and couldn’t even walk to the shops.

Now, at 27, she’s a trim 10 stone thanks to hypnotherapy and exercise – and a personal trainer hired by her worried gran.

And she’s started a new full-time job with trainer David Wilson, helping others shed the pounds.

“I feel great,” Helena said last night. “I can’t believe the change. I have my life back.”

Helena, of Waterfoot, Renfrewshire, started piling on the weight as a 13-year-old with anxiety problems. She gorged on junk food, chocolate, sweets, crisps and fizzy drinks, and would eat a large pizza herself at night.

Just walking as far as the car made Helena’s feet throb and she dreaded going out in case people laughed at her.

The last straw came when she went away on holiday and had to have an extension for her seatbelt plane.

She said: “The embarrassment was excruciating.”

But Helena’s life began to change in December 2008 when her gran Helen called David, and the former St Mirren midfielder used psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, diet and exercise to help.

She’d lost five stone by December last year and quit her job child support worker to focus on losing more weight, as well as helping David with his company Rapid Hypno Fitness.

And she completed her transformation last week by starting full-time work with the firm. She said: “Thanks to my grandmother, I feel amazing.”
