This woman lost 80 pounds on a different kind of elimination diet. She eliminated social media.
Brenda Finn, 33, a candlemaker from London, told SWNS she had “always been a bit chubby,” but starting in 2016 she started to gain a lot of weight, reaching 217 pounds by August 2020.
It was around then that Finn — who also suffers from alopecia, an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss — had a turning point.
“I remember looking in the mirror and thinking “Oh s**t, how have I got this big?” Finn told SWNS.
