Rachel Witty ran the Hull Half Marathon to fundraise for Seed. Rachel's testament to Seed is touching and heart warming.
So this has finally happened...
I have signed up and will be running my first half marrathon. It's time to share my journey.
My recovery has given me eternal thanks, perspective and happiness on the life I live.
An eating disorder destroys you. Depression takes over. Anxiety rules. And suicidal thoughts are dark... but recovery is real. I have the best family, my soul mate of a perfect boyfriend, my bestest friend back in my life and amazing people around me daily as well as my own home sweet home.
The hope always hung on and recovery is truly possible. For the days the mirror challenged me I will now use the strength it gave me with pride!
On top of the support around me... Seed saved me. And I am forever grateful.
Please support this amazing charity...
Thank you, you know who you are... You motivate and inspire me and this is my time to say sorry to my old self and the effect it had on my surrounding world of family, friends and experiences.
For the years lost may every second now count
See you at the finish line

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency is launching a pilot campaign today to understand current levels of awareness about the dangers of purchasing fake or illicit medical products online. This pilot phase will focus specifically on the increasing popularity of purchasing dangerous slimming pills.
Every year the MHRA participates in Operation Pangea, a worldwide operation involving bodies from 103 countries co-ordinated by Interpol which seizes massive amounts of falsified medicines and medical devices. This year alone over 12 million fake and unlicensed products were taken out of circulation - slimming pills was one of the largest groups of medicines seized. There have also been a number of cases in recent years showing that death is tragically very real side effect.
Eloise Parry, Sean Cleathero and Chris Mapletoft are just a few of the people who have lost their lives in the last five years due to illicit or falsified slimming pills.
While the MHRA’s enforcement unit continues to tackle the supply of these products, shutting down websites and working to ensure that those selling falsified medicines are brought to justice. Their campaign will tackle the demand and focus on reaching out to those most likely to purchase slimming pills to raise awareness of the dangers.
You can support the campaign in its early stage by sharing the MHRA’s online content below:
