Emma Stokes, 25, from Cheshire has been struggling with anorexia since her grandmother died in 2013 and the dancer saw her weight fall to just 6st 7lb. While she was spending so much time in the gym and hardly eating 600 calories a day, her worried partner, Chris stood by her.
After a series of hospital visits and pain, in March of 2015 Emma returned from hospital to find Chris on one knee with this note:
Emma, who know weighs 7st 4lb said: "Chris proposing was a massive turning point. I want to get better so I can get married. There is still a way to go to get to where I need to be. But I'm now back teaching again and I have just qualified as a gym instructor. I was always a keen runner and I've been able to start racing again, which is also a massive thing. I feel so much better. There are still foods that scare me, and I think that is always going to be the way.
I have a bad thought I think about the bigger picture. My periods still haven't come back, but I want to have children some day so that motivates me."Every time
Chris and Emma are set to get married in August and we're over the moon for them! This is just proof that with the right people around with you and the right support, anything is possible. Congratulations guys!
