Q: What made you decide to lose weight?
A: I had my third child, Miley, and I was still carrying the post-pregnancy weight six months on. I used to be a size 10 – 12, so I wanted to shift that baby weight and feel comfortable again. Then my little boy used the word ‘fat’ once and I couldn’t find the words to explain to him why it wasn’t kind. It hurt. I knew I needed to do something.
Q: What were your favourite Exante Diet products?
A: The Chocolate Shake, the Strawberry Jam Bar and the Strawberry Shake
Q: What did you learn on the plan?

Q: How did your plan fit into your lifestyle?
A: It was so easy – I am always busy and this took the hassle out of shopping, planning and cooking. I even took the shakes and bars all the way to Barbados on holiday. I could use the bars before performing on stage and have the shakes after my Charity bike rides and runs.
