Aftercare key to staying thin, says 29-stone slimmer

A woman who lost 29 stone in three years says aftercare is the key to keeping weight off.

Kim Laughton, who was 43 stone at her heaviest, said that although slimming clubs helped her lose weight, she would quickly return to old eating habits.

She told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire: "I thought the weight would stay off but it doesn't work like that... I put nearly double back on afterwards."

It comes after the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence advised that losing a little weight and keeping it off - avoiding "yo-yo" dieting - was better for overall health.
