She told the Good Housekeeping Magazine: “I became obsessed with the thought that I was going to die. I was never interested in how I look….this time last year I was a size 22 and walking with a stick.
“I was tired and a bit depressed, which isn’t my style – I’m really an optimistic person.”
On why her weight-loss program worked, she explains: “At my first appointment I sat on weight-loss expert Louise Parker’s sofa and told her ‘I’m going to die.’
“And she said to me ‘Not on my watch, Sandi. This is what I do.’”
