The Bolton News: Barbara Lyons after losing three stone Barbara Lyons after losing three stone

A DIABETIC has got her condition under control by losing weight.

Barbara Lyons, who lives in Golborne, was injecting insulin twice a day, taking two tablets a day for high blood pressure plus medication for rheumatoid arthritis and high cholesterol.

But, after losing three stone she has transformed her life and now only takes one tablet per day for high blood pressure.

Julie Woodward, a Slimming World consultant, said: “Barbara is a lovely lady who has totally transformed her life, she is a true inspiration to other diabetics and would love to share her story and inspire others.”

Barbara joined Wigan Council’s Lose Weight Feel Great scheme earlier in 2013 when she was in pain and overweight.

By the end of the 12 week course she had lost a stone and Barbara enjoyed it so much that she continued to attend the Slimming World group in Lowton and continued to exercise.
