SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

 

A Welshpool woman who cares full time for her disabled child became an instant hit on national TV this morning (Wednesday) after an inspirational appearance on ITV’s Lorraine show.
 
Teresa Gannon, 37, was featured on the ‘Little Black Dress Diet’ section with the show’s fitness guru after declaring her determination to slim down for her parent’s 40th wedding anniversary which is this weekend.
 
Filmed a month back in London, Teresa gave an emotional introduction of how she had put on weight looking after her three-year old daughter.
 
“Basically this is the heaviest I have ever been and I don’t like being this large,” she said before her Welshpool ‘twang’ came shining through: “I was stuck at home all the time looking after my disabled daughter and just went into the kitchen cupboards ‘scoffing’!
 
“I want to get into that little black dress because it is my mum and dad’s 40th wedding anniversary, but I need to kick myself up the bum!”
 
Teresa, who says the whole experience has been exciting but admits it was “embarrassing” at first, is then seen learning exercises from the expert which, she says, have paid off so far.
 
“I would like to lose a stone by the time I go back to London, but I have lost 11lbs so far,” she said, after watching herself on prime time TV this morning (Wednesday). “My long-term goal is to get down to 11-stone which ideal for my height and my frame.”
 
Teresa hopes her appearance will encourage other women unhappy with their weight to tackle it head on.
 
“All I can say to others is to just keep up the diet and the exercise,” she said. “You will start to see the results. Don't get disheartened when you have a bad week! My friends and family are very pleased with my progress and are right behind me!”
 
Teresa, who shared star billing on the show with Westlife and Hollywood superstar Robin Williams, will appear again on Lorraine after she returns to London for a progress report.
