Woman Loses 10st After Man Throws Burger At Her

Woman Loses 10st After Man Throws Burger At Her

A mum has lost an incredible 10 stone after an angry driver called her a 'fat c***' and threw a burger at her car.

Kym Fisher weighed 21st 7lbs and wore a size 24 when she was subjected to the foul-mouthed tirade in March 2015.

The 30-year-old was driving with daughter Bea, four, when a van driver almost crashed into her.

The mum-of-one, from Basingstoke, Hampshire, said: "I was really scared that he was going to smash into us. I was worried he was going to smash into the back seat and hit Bea.

"I beeped the horn and the guy just went absolutely ballistic. He wound down his window and threw a burger at the car and was shouting, 'You're a fat c***.'

"He started really flaring up and ramming into the side of the car. I was really worried because of Bea.

"It all happened so quickly and escalated so quickly."

The angry van man was eventually fined by police.

However, along with a warning from her mum, the shocking incident acted as the springboard Kym needed to lose weight and get healthier.

Over the past two years, she has managed to lose 10 stone, shrinking from a size 24 to a size 8. She now weighs a healthy 11st 7lbs - a weight she hadn't been for more than a decade.

She now goes to the gym six times a week and is able to play with her little girl without getting out of breath.

Kym says: "When Bea started walking and running around, I couldn't run after her. I was out of breath all the time.

"Things like going to soft play, I physically couldn't get my bum down things. I couldn't go down the slide with Bea because my bum was too big.

"My mum was saying, 'You need to be careful. You need to sort it out and if you want to be around to see your daughter grow up then you need to lose weight.' I needed that push.

"I started to lose weight from home, getting rid of the takeaways and having everything fresh and home-cooked. Then I joined Slimming World in 2017.

"I feel amazing in myself. My confidence has shot up so much."

Until leaving home aged 19, Kym weighed 11st 7lbs but while living alone she discovered a life of takeaways and binge drinking - and quickly piled on the pounds.

After a lifestyle that involved gorging on fast food and partying with friends, by the age of 23 Kym's weight had shot up to 17st 7lbs.

And when Bea was born in 2015, Kym's weight had reached a staggering 21st 7lbs.

Kym said: "When I left home and moved out, I discovered the life of takeaways and drinking and not having to worry about anything. I gained a lot of weight.

"And when I got pregnant, my eating spiralled out of control. I ate so much it was unreal and I was eating anything and everything.

"Basically I would live at McDonald's. There's a drive-thru two minutes from my house so I'd stop for a McDonald's breakfast then again on the way home from work.

"I had about one or two pigs-in-blanket toasties from Costa everyday and I got addicted to Branston Pickle sausage rolls. I ate so many everyday at work that my co-workers were cursing me because they stank.

"I didn't even try to excuse my eating to be honest. I just didn't care. I wasn't worried about it and nobody said anything."

She has now put the unhealthy lifestyle behind her, which is having a positive impact on her daughter.

Kym said: "I absolutely love being a better role model for Bea. She always tells me she can't wait to go to boot camp with me when she's an adult."
