Young children who suffer from severe forms of cerebral palsy have motivated a woman to lose four stone in two months.
Kayleigh Argyle, of Foster Avenue in Windsor, who weighed 23 stone in December, has trimmed down to 19 stone as she aims to lose 140lbs by July.
The 27-year-old set herself the challenge of losing the weight, running a marathon or half marathon and raising £10,000, and has so far raised £1,000.
Cash will be split between Vivi Gregory-Osborne, seven, of York Avenue, Windsor, and Ethan Quinn, seven, of Burnham, so each can have operations to help them walk unaided.
She said: "It has been really challenging as I previously used food for comfort, but have had to turn to other things such as the gym.
"It has been mind over matter and really difficult.
"I feel so much better."
Kayleigh has been working out at Five Star Health and Fitness Gym and is training for a half marathon in October.
She hopes to start working as a volunteer looking after night-time revellers for Windsor Street Angels in a few weeks.
