Chanelle Hayes Shows Amazing Body Transformation In Bikini After 8 Stone Weight Loss
CHANELLE Hayes showed off her incredible body transformation on her way to the beach in Spain.
The 33-year-old revealed the full extent of her eight-stone weight loss while wearing a tiny yellow bikini – in stark contrast to her 2018 appearance wearing a similar two-piece.
Chanelle was invited to have gastric sleeve surgery in 2020 after her weight hit more than 17 stones – and proudly showed off the results as she walked along the sand.
The mother of two said she has been much happier since losing weight, but recently admitted that she still has a ways to go to love herself.
She wrote on Instagram: “I have wobbles and jerks and bits and pieces that I don’t like about my home, but looking at the physical data on paper from my healthcare team, my condition has gone downhill. improved since the weight loss that caused these jerks helps me embrace the bits of the outer self that I don’t like.
“Now I see my body as something that I am grateful for, that I have taken for granted, that I have to treat with respect.”
At the height of her fame in 2009, the former Big Brother star weighed 8.5 stones, barely eating and taking laxatives to try and get a WAG – lean body with big breasts.
She had previously spoken to The Sun about her battle with her body image over the years and how even at her lightest weight of 8 stones, she was neither happy nor healthy.
She recounted her life in the late 2000s: “I lived in hotels and didn’t eat anything all day. If I was starving I would eat a can of tomatoes with hot sauce, then take laxatives.
“I thought I was preparing for this amazing life, but the truth was I was still alone and it was so alone.”
Unable to find a happy medium, Chanelle would stuff herself with Dominos pizzas and her weight got out of hand.
At her fullest, she was too ashamed to leave home and was at risk of developing diabetes.
She lost weight at a rate of 10 to 13 pounds per week after her operation, and now at 9.5 stones is the happiest she has ever been.
