Melissa 

lost nearly five stone and sailed into a new career.

Overweight Melissa Beer has lost nearly five stone and sailed into a new career. SHE had to run fast, swim well and perform dozens of sit-ups. Melissa Beer also had to weigh less than 69kg and have a "healthy" body mass index.

Now the 23-year-old from Loscoe has achieved her dream – and joined the Royal Navy.

"I go to Plymouth on May 25," beamed Melissa, who was once a size 22. "And I still can't quite believe it."

In 2012, Melissa, of Loscoe Grange, weighed a hefty 15st 9lbs and had a shocking BMI of 40.1.
