They’ve tried every diet going to slim down but to no avail – and like Leanne du Preez (21) of Uitenhage they ended up feeling imprisoned in their own bodies.

But thanks to YOU, Leanne has gained a new lease of life, already having lost 16,5 kg of her original 191,5 kg – and along with her, 100 other readers also have renewed hope of a trim, healthy future.

These readers – who are all on the heavier side of 140 kg – have joined her on YOU’s Project Beat the Bulge.

They can’t wait to turn their lives around and perhaps win that prize of a makeover session and new wardrobe in our slimming competition!

YOU’s Lara Atson and Duane Petrus chatted to some of the participants who shared their empowering stories. Read more in YOU 10 November 2011.
