The mum-of-two explained that she was amazed by how her body had responded to her mistreating it over the years. "It just waited for me," she said. "When I thought, 'You know what, I want to be kinder to you.' ... When I first lost the four stone and did a marathon - it did a marathon! It just waited silently for me.
