Doctors warned Ruth that her organs could fail at any time, but she still refused to eat. Her mom begged her to start eating, but Ruth would just shout at her that she didn’t have to follow a meal plan. This was when Mrs Jenkinson got an idea how she could save her daughter’s life.

Mrs Jenkinson, 44, who works for a construction company, was 177 pounds (80.6 kilos). She decided to join Slimming World to follow a meal plan to lose weight so that her daughter would follow her own meal plan to gain weight.
