Sarah: I officially became a single, working mom after my divorce in 1996. I had debts and had to earn a living to support myself and share in the cost of raising my girls. I felt it would be wrong for me to work commercially in Britain; so for me, going off to work meant commuting several weeks each month to the United States. My first real job was with Weight Watchers, and I am proud to say we are still together eight years later. This work has changed my life. When I started, I was still overweight and my esteem was rock bottom from the tabloids' incessant pummeling. I lost weight on the program, but more importantly I toured America, meeting and speaking with thousands who accepted me as a fellow member. That acceptance made me stronger, and the organization's unconditional support kept me going.
