'It made me feel alive again'
- From the section Get Inspired
When Andrea's father died from cancer in April 2015, she reached a turning point in her life.
She weighted over 30 stone and says: "I had to make a lifestyle change."
And she did.
"I changed from seeing exercise as some type of punishment and a necessary evil to something I enjoyed," she says.
