Becky Hunter-Hadley was determined to fly.
It's not that she couldn't travel on a plane before. She was just too embarrassed to do so. Weighing 308 pounds and wearing size 26, the mom of three could barely squeeze into one of the plane seats. And when she did, she would usually need a belt extender.
"I would worry about it so much while we were away, it would take over what should have been a nice family break," Hunter-Hadley.

Since her family and friends loved her for who she was, she never did anything about her weight, despite feeling personally uncomfortable about it. It wasn't until after her third baby that her friend suggested she join her for Weight Watchers. And there, she realized how many pounds she put on.
She said, "When I stepped on the scales for the first time, I was shocked. I knew I was heavy but hadn’t realised exactly how big I’d got."
Instantly, Hunter-Hadley made a big change to her diet. She eliminated takeout food, processed food, chips, and biscuits from her meals. She swapped in healthy and non-processed food to eat instead. And she watched the pounds melt away in just 18 months.
