A woman who lost four stone after her holiday was spoiled by looking at thin women on the beach has become a personal trainer. Jules Duncan’s weight spiralled out of control after gorging herself on ham and cheese sandwiches, packets of crisps and chocolate. But the shame she felt about her body ruined a trip to Ibiza in 2011 and led her to slim down from 15st 2Ib to 11st. Jules, 38, from Greenock said: “When I got to Ibiza with my friend and husband, Ross, that was the lowest point of my life. “Being overweight, I would be tired all the time and I didn’t have much energy to do anything else, it was so uncomfortable. “It was just an ongoing struggle and I looked at everything so negatively, I was constantly bloated by the fizzy drinks I was drinking. “I remember I would watch everyone else in the pool and I didn’t want to take my dress off because I thought everyone would look at me. “When you are in that environment you think you will … [Read more...] about Woman who shed over 4 stone after holiday weight shame is now personal trainer
A NEW programme on Channel 4 is tracking the weight loss journeys of ordinary members of the public. The woman in charge is "detox diva" Galia Grainger aka The Slim Reaper - known for the cutthroat style and incredible results. Who is Galia Grainger? Galia Grainger, 60, is a weight-loss expert who lives in South London and has one grown-up son.

1. Apple Watch Series 4 Price: from €439 (40mm) and €469 (44mm) What’s the best selling individual watch in the world? Believe it or not, it's actually Apple’s smartwatch. The newest Series 4 is a big upgrade on the Series 3 (itself an excellent smartwatch and still on sale from €279). The biggest improvement is the display screen, which is considerably larger than the previous three generations, even though the Watch itself is around the same size. This is because Apple has thinned out the bezels, meaning the non-active parts at the side of the display. That means 44mm instead of 42mm, or 40mm instead of 38mm. Everything also feels much, much faster thanks to beefed up power. One of the most talked-about features of the new Watch is the built-in ECG function, an ability to monitor your heart’s health. Alas, even though it’s technically built in to the device, it’s not available to us in Europe yet, for regulatory reasons. Apple sells two … [Read more...] about Looking for a decent smartwatch?
