“I’d go to Pizza Hut or Domino’s every single night of the week.

“It got to the point where one day my dad turned round to me and said, ‘Look Amelia, boys don’t fancy fat girls.’

“I couldn’t believe my dad had said that but I also found it funny.

“I spent more on food than the average four-person family because I ate out so much.

“Now I can’t believe I ever ate the amount I did – and I rarely have a pizza!”
