One woman’s weight loss success story on This Time Next Year sadly ended in heartbreak.
Fiona appeared on a special weight loss edition of the show, and explained she hoped to have a baby in the near future.
She had struggled with fertility in the past due to having polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and on medical advice was told to lose weight in order to be able to conceive.
Fiona told host Davina McCall that she planned to lose eight stone over the course of a year.
This Time Next Year sent Fiona on her way to start her weight loss journey, and when she returned (after what seemed like a number of seconds for us but was in fact a whole 12 months), she had managed lose weight.
Despite it being two stone short of her eight stone target, Fiona is determined to press on with her lifestyle change.
But her journey ended in heartbreak as while her weight loss helped her fall pregnant naturally, she suffered a miscarriage.
Fiona said: ‘I started off running with my husband then got myself a personal trainer. Then I started calorie control and pre-prepared meals which really helped.

‘But I’ve still got two and a half stone that I want to lose. My BMI is not quite where it needs to be but there’s a little bit of a twist to that story.’
She continued: ‘I’ve got polycystic ovaries so that was the whole weight loss to qualify for the fertility treatment.
‘But a few months ago I actually fell pregnant naturally. Unfortunately I lost the baby, had a miscarriage. I didn’t know I was ovulating but the weight loss has kickstarted my body, and it did it naturally.
‘Never in a million years did I think it was gonna happen naturally, and now it’s kind of flipped the whole pledge because this can happen now.
‘I’m gonna keep going and this isn’t the end for me.’
This Time Next Year airs Tuesdays at 8pm on ITV
