Caroline Kupfers

When the simple act of walking up and down the stairs made Caroline feel as if she was going to have a heart attack, she knew it was time to act. Having previously lost weight with us before becoming pregnant with her daughter (now 10) she returned to a plan she knew would work.

  • Weight lost: 10st 1lb*
  • Weight loss plan: Total
  • Followed the LighterLife Management plan


‘I’d forgotten something so I had to go up and down the stairs a couple of times and my heart was racing. I remember thinking this is because I am fat, it was then that I began crying. I didn’t want to have a heart attack or die, I wanted to see my daughter grow up and walk down the aisle.

I’ve been bigger for as long as I can remember. I was always trying to lose weight some way or another. I tried every diet out there, but none of them seemed to work. Before long I only had two options left, LighterLife or a Gastric Bypass. I chose LighterLife as it seemed a lot less scary.

My mum, was always worried about my health due to my size. She’s so proud that I have lost the weight and am healthier and happier. My husband and daughter, Nikita, also couldn’t be prouder.

“Nikita loves that mummy can now jump up and down on the trampoline with her, and run around with the dog.”

If anything my weight loss has made my marriage even stronger, as my husband has been so supportive. I would never cook before as I was so tired and seemed to live on pizza. Now we cook meals together as a family.

One of the best and most significant factors in losing the weight has got to be my increase in confidence. Everyday activities and fun days out were so difficult. Whenever we would go to a theme park I wouldn’t dare even try and get on the rides, through fear I’d get stuck! I now walk and cycle everywhere and I’ve started dancing again, an activity I forgot how much I loved.

I think LighterLife worked for me as the weekly group sessions and weight loss kept me motivated throughout. With conventional food removed it’s easy to stay focused.’

Caroline has been through management and is finding managing her weight much easier now she is cooking for herself and making healthier choices.
