Alison revealed she decided to join the weight loss group Weight Watchers to speed up the process: “This is something I wanted to achieve for a long time and I haven’t managed it on my own, so I went to my local workshop and met my lovely Wellness Coach Andrea and the rest is history!
“I’m falling in love with the journey and hope you will support me as much as you can.”
She said on social media: “I know this may sound a bit corny but I’m so happy doing @ww.uk as it’s given me the confidence to just embrace myself fully.
“I never really liked my face without make-up as I have dark patches but now I’m totally loving myself and falling in love with me while I’m away on holiday.
“Secondly, I’m doing a bit more exercise. I now have a personal trainer and he’s amazing. I work at my own pace – we do circuits and I absolutely love it,” the presenter added.
Alison said what motivated her to lose weight was her mother’s health battle.
The star was diagnosed with a pre-diabetic condition in 2020 and since her late mother suffered from diabetes and died in February 2020 after a battle with liver and lung cancer, the presenter knew she had to drastically change her lifestyle.
Alison explained: “I’ve never had health issues until then. It scared me because my mum had diabetes and I want to be there for my son.
“I decided to do something about it.
“I go for walks and I cut out sugar. I feel a lot better. I’m not weighing myself, because you feel it in your clothes.
“I’m no longer pre-diabetic, and I’m doing really well.
“I’ve been doing that for a while now, and you know something? I feel fitter, I feel stronger. I might not look perfect yet, but personally, I’m perfect, full stop!” she said.
