After her Birds of a Feather co-star and best mate Pauline Quirke lost eight stone, Linda Robson decided she wanted to follow in her friend’s success

What she lost: At her heaviest Linda was 15 st, but she shifted three and a half stone in three months.

How she did it: Impressed by Pauline’s success following the Lighter Life meal replacement plan – which also offers members regular counselling sessions, Linda decided to follow the plan herself

Linda told Woman: ‘Pauline and I are both a size 12 now. People stop me in the street and say ‘Are you trying to keep up with your friend?’. I feel so much better, much more confident now.’
