A CELLARDYKE woman who went from fat to fit after completing a personal learning project has been recognised for her dedication.

Such was her success on the course, Jacqui, who was previously overweight and very unfit, has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Lifetime Learner Achievement Awards.
She said; “Due to my own personal experience, I realise the barriers people have against physical exercise and healthy lifestyles and I can understand the difficulties they endure as they take an active lifestyle.
“I am motivational, inspirational and love being a part of people achieving their goals in life.”
