CHANELLE Hayes shows off her 9.5 stone weight loss as she took off her underwear and embraced her “wobble bits.”
At the height of his fame in 2009, the former Big Brother star, 33, weighed 8.5stones, was barely eating and taking laxatives to try to get slim with a WAG body – big boobs.
However, over the years his junk food addiction increased his weight by 17stone 4lbs in 2020 forcing him to undergo gastric sleeve surgery.
The weight has come off since then, and Chanel is much happier now, though admits she still has a way of loving herself.
She wrote on Instagram: “I have wiggles and jerks and bits I don’t like about myself, but judging by the physical data on paper from my healthcare team about how much my health has improved since I lost weight, Which helps me with these shaking.To hug the pieces of the exterior I don’t like.
“Now I see my body as something I’m grateful for, that I’ve taken for granted, that I need to treat with respect.”
The mum-of-two talked about her battle with her body image over the years and how she wasn’t happy or healthy even at her lightest weight of 8 stone.
She said of her life of late arrival: “I was staying in hotels and didn’t eat anything all day. If I was absolutely hungry I would eat a tin of tomatoes with hot sauce, then take a laxative. Was.
“I thought I was setting myself up for this wonderful life but in truth I was always on my own and it was so lonely.”
Unable to find a happy medium, Chanel ate Domino’s Pizza and her weight spiraled out of control.
At her heaviest, she felt too shy to leave the house and was at risk of developing diabetes.
She lost 10-13lbs a week after her surgery, and is now at 9.5stones the happiest she has ever been.
She continued: “I still have crap days. I don’t like my loose skin and would love to have my 34F boob implants removed because they are near my knees now and feel like empty sacks.
“But I’m really trying to embrace my body. I don’t feel like I’m depriving myself of food I love or changing what I eat.”
