“I had a post-divorce glow up and lost two stone through taekwondo – now I feel amazing"

A mum had a post-divorce glow up and lost two stone by doing taekwondo – and now feels “amazing” and “strong”. Sarah Albassri, 30, found herself gaining weight due to stress and after having her daughter, now two, she struggled to shift the pounds. The mum, who at her heaviest weighed 13st 3lbs, had always had a love for taekwondo – learning the martial art when she came to the US after fleeing the war in Syria. Following the breakdown of her marriage, Sarah started training two to three times a week and took up running – taking her toddler along in the stroller. Soon she started to see results and is now a slender 10st 10lbs and a US size 8 and now feels “happy” in her body.
