Slimmer Of The Year Leanne Needham Heeds The Fat Haters

by | 20th, August 2009

7724526LEANNE Needham, from Sheffield, holds up a cardboard cut-out of her as a size 22 fatty/NHS pariah/ victim as she becomes Slimming World’s ‘Young Slimmer of the Year 2009′ at The Ritz in central London.

Leanne is delighted at now being acceptable – a media hero – and looks fit to burst, much like her old jeans she is seen wearing and now carrying about her like a totem.

Leanne went from 17st 10lbs in June 2007 to her current weight of 10st 7lbs.

She was probably morbidly obese, a neat modern term that reminds fatties that they are a deadly danger to the public at large, should they fall on them or eat all the world’s protein and milkshakes.


Says she:

“By the age of 17 I weighed more than my age – and more than my dad. I’d been bullied since the age of 10 because of my size – a classmate once told me it was time I went to a ‘fat club’.

“I couldn’t fit comfortably into the seats at uni so I began to skip lectures and my grades began to suffer. When my doctor said that losing weight could help me overcome these problems I knew I had to make a change.”

Yeah, the bullying worked, especially when it was coordinated with some NHS tagteam bullying.

Thanks to Leanne we now have a new reason to fear fatness, it being a gateway to acute graduation failure.

The fat – fear them!
