You both took a shine to Commando from the beginning. Is he a big softie underneath?
Robyn: "Yes, he is. The reason I took a shine was because he got up on the stage, and when he gave me that first card he actually whispered in my ear, 'Don’t worry, I will get you and your daughter through this.' And I was able to believe him. And that’s what he was like. He gave us his word and he kept his word."
Katie: "He was really quite funny. You’d see him at weigh-ins and he’s always so serious, and very hard-faced, but every time we stopped, Commando was cracking jokes and getting everybody into trouble!"
What would be the number one tip you’d give to families who might be struggling with weight problems in the house?
Robyn: "Ask for help. Go to a doctor. Go to a dietician. Whatever you can afford — we’re just a basic working class family but there are options out there for us. There are websites that are free that can help you. But go to your doctor — that’s the first step. Take whatever advice is out there."
