STRUGGLING with your New Year's resolutions and in need of a boost?

Last year we asked readers to send in their before and after weight loss success pictures to encourage others they can do it too.

And after putting together an incredibly inspirational gallery, we have decided to do the same again this year with our Class of 2018 Super Slimmers.

Click the gallery above to see our super slimmers' pictures and then read below some of the stories behind how they did it in their own words.

There's still time to send in your pictures. Just click on the form below.

Claire Davenport's story

5 stone down after I decided to join the gym, get a personal trainer and stopped living off takeaways!

Lisa Corrigan's story

13 stone 13 girl out of breath just walking up the stairs to a 12 stone 6 girl deadlifting over 120kg and 4 days a week at BTB fitness academy.

It all started at the age of 16 when I left school. I piled on over 4 stone from 16 to 24 and as a result of that I became very unfit and suffered with more medical issues.

I knew what I needed to do but I was too lazy.

After realising how badly my body was suffering from my weight I had to do something about it and that was to join the gym.

I started off doing 1 hour a week and over a period of time i started to progress and attend 2 -3 times a week.

It wasn't easy at all but I powered through. After 6 months in I started to really enjoy going to the gym and ate a bit more healthy.

I never gave up fatty foods completely as I didn't want to do 2 drastic things at once but I knew, if I was to eat junk, I had to burn it I now go to the gym 4 or 5 times a week.

Even though the scales say 12 stone 6, I have lost a large amount of body fat yet gained so much muscle.

Not only are the staff at BTB fitness academy supportive but the members are too.

If it wasn't for help from them I wouldn't be where I am today. They have helped me overcome mental issues as well as physical.

I've now decided to do a degree in personal training to help others achieve their goals just like me.
