She Felt Her Weight Kept Her From Finding Romance... And Look At Her Now

August 30, 2014

Hazel Dyson wanted to find romance and fall in love but felt that her weight was holding her back.

For many years Hazel was a compulsive eater, and by the age of 21 she weighed over 300 pounds. Men insulted her size 26 figure, calling her "massive" and "disgusting" - leaving her convinced that she would be single forever.

Everything changed in 2008 after Hazel was warned that if she didn't take control of her weight she'd need a hip replacement by the time she was 30.

Determined to lose weight, she joined her local Slimming World group.

"I dreaded the first Slimming World meeting…but I knew that if I didn't face my fears, I'd be stuck at that size forever – and I didn't want that any more. I wanted my happily-ever-after."

And five years later, she reached her goal. By her 26th birthday she had lost an impressive 175 pounds, and felt confident enough to join a dating website.

"Every time I signed into my account, I had a new message from someone asking me out on a date. I couldn't believe it."
