A mum-of-two has lost half of her body weight and found a fiancé after reaching her lowest ebb.
Angela Snagg, 32, a mum-of-two from Stockbridge Village in Merseyside, weighed a massive 32 stone at her heaviest.
She has two daughters, Rosalie, eight, and April, seven.
Angela said that two years ago she realised she had to change and something in her “snapped”.
She said: “I was at my biggest two years ago in 2018.
“In 2017 I got a dog to try and start losing weight and it did work, I lost about two stone just from walking – but then I realised I had to up my game.”
At the time, the mum as in an unhappy relationship, but felt herself hit rock bottom before she ended things.
Angela told the Liverpool Echo: “I think something snapped in me, I can’t tell you exactly what that was, but enough was enough.
“I got to my biggest because I was at my lowest.
She continued: “I actually took an overdose and my mum had to step in for a while to look after my children.”
So, she decided she needed to “sort [herself] out”.
Angela took up boxing to raise money for charity and the exercise helped to motivate her.
She said: “That helped give me an extra push, but I could never have done that if it wasn’t for a healthy, happy mindset.
“Once you get rid of the toxic from your life things get better.
“I started in the gym and got myself a Personal Trainer.
“I started a program in January, and I had a charity boxing match signed up so I had a couple of months to get in shape.”
Angela has now lost a whopping 16 stone and is training to be a personal trainer.
She used the extra exercise and calorie counting to drop the weight.
And shed half her body weight in the process.
Angela said: “If you’d have told me two years ago I’d be as active as I am now I’d have laughed in your face.
“I couldn’t go on fairground rides with the kids because I was too big.
“I couldn’t run around the park with them because I would have to sit on the bench and watch them as I’d get out of breath.”
Plus, just last week, Angela’s new partner asked her to marry him.
So a truly happy ending is on the cards for this hardworking mum.
She says that her kids are happier too.
Angela commented: “It’s never too late to get out and change.
“No matter how old you are or how long you’ve been in that place for, whether you’re in a bad relationship or just a bad place mentally, there are people who will help you.”
