Scottish couple married for a second time after they succeeded shedding the pounds dramatically

An overweight Scottish couple married for a second time after they succeeded shedding the pounds dramatically.

Janice and William Robertson decided a change was needed after realising no exercise and a fast food heavy diet was expanding their waistlines.

When William, aged 36, was diagnosed with diabetes the couple made drastic lifestyle changes and joined a slimming class.

After shedding a combined 14 stone, they decided to renew their wedding vows on their ten-year anniversary as they did not like how they looked in their wedding photos, Metro UK reports

Mother of three Janice, 34, said: ‘We knew we were both overweight but we were so in love that neither of us cared.

‘We are best friends and we do everything together. We both decided to lose weight. It was so much better because it became a bit of a competition.

She added: ‘We were looking through our old wedding photographs and William said we had to get married again, now that we had lost all of the weight.

‘I was unsure at first because my late father was at our first wedding but after speaking to my family they convinced me that he would be really proud.’

The couple said ‘I do’ in front of loved ones during a ceremony at Pauline’s home.

Janice said: ‘It was the most amazing day.

‘When we first got married, it wasn’t enjoyable. I was a size 22 and none of the dresses fitted me. I was sad about how I looked in them.

‘But when I went dress shopping for the second time it was amazing.

Cutting the cake, but will their diet regime allow them to eat it?

‘I was trying on size 12 dresses and I could practically try on every dress in the store. When I saw myself I burst into tears.’
