Woman loses 123 pounds after taking up running in lockdown: 'Nothing feels out of reach'

Sophie Higginbottom, 30, from Ellesmere Port, U.K., attributes her 123.5-pound weight loss to her newfound love of running, as well as her involvement in the U.K.-based weight loss program, Slimming World.

Higginbottom was even recently named Slimming World’s “Woman of the Year.”

Higginbottom started her weight loss journey in January 2020, according to SWNS. At the time, she weighed about 249.5 pounds and avoided cameras because she didn’t like how she looked, according to a Slimming World press release.
