A chocoholic mother kicking her sweet tooth in one night over two family blocks of chocolates has dropped about five stone in just four months.

Mother-of-three Alison Smith said that difficult pregnancies caused her to reach her heaviest weight of 125 kg (19th 9 lbs), bringing her size to 20.

The 27-year-old from Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, has given up her habit of eating chocolate at night and has since lost 30kg (4th 10lbs) in just four months.

The disability aid worker now feels more confident than ever in her new 95kg, shaped frame – and is also wearing shorts outdoors for the first time in six years.

Allison said: ‘I just got to a point where I had three kids in three years, and I wasn’t looking at myself in the mirror.

‘I wasn’t happy with myself, and I wasn’t living life to the fullest. I didn’t want to go to events because I didn’t have anything that would suit me.

‘I also felt like people were looking at me and thinking “oh geez she put on a lot of weight”.

‘I felt embarrassed about how big I was, I didn’t believe at all. ‘

I tried every single diet under the sun and ended up spending all this money on all these programs failing every time.

Allison says, 'Surgery... was the best thing ever'

Her staple meals were carb-heavy and devoid of nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables – including dishes like takeaway Chinese, pizza, fries, burritos or burgers.

She said: ‘One hundred percent I was addicted to chocolate, and I was worried I wouldn’t eat it again.

‘I guess I was accustomed to it mainly for the taste. Most of the time I used to limit myself to diet.

‘I was telling myself I wasn’t allowed to because it’s ‘bad’ food.

‘When I failed a diet or was about to start a diet, I used to binge and try to eat as much as I could.

‘Because in my mind I was “starting a diet on Monday”, that would be the last time I was ‘allowed’ chocolate.’

After trying ‘every diet under the sun’ with no success, Alison’s doctor recommended that she undergo gastric sleeve surgery to prevent future health complications due to her size.

The super slimmer is now more confident than ever and says she has the energy to be the best mom she can be to her kids.

Allison is now inspiring her followers on her Instagram page @lifeofalli.

She said: ‘I love being able to inspire others on social media.

‘I am more energetic now. I hang out with my kids and they are enjoying it.

‘My four year old said ‘Mom you didn’t run around with us, and you used to get really bloated but now you don’t’.

‘Now I wear what I want, not what fits.

‘I recently wore shorts for the first time in almost six years and I had the confidence to wear shorts outside the house.

‘My son told me ‘Mom you never wear shorts, but you should because you look so beautiful’.

‘I’m so glad I was brave enough to meet with the surgeon and go through the surgery because it was the best I’ve ever had.

‘Now I have finally managed to lose weight and am on the path to where I want to be.’
