Chanelle Hayes recently revealed that she’d lost seven stone following a new fitness regime and a bariatric surgery.
The former Big Brother star went from a size 18 to a size 10 and has admitted that shedding the excess weight has helped her to enjoy the hot weather more this year.
The 33 year old posted a stunning snap of herself ready for summer on her Instagram story yesterday.
In the picture she is wearing a light pink vest top with denim shorts and white trainers, her brunette hair in a wavy shoulder length style.
She wore big glasses and natural makeup in the pic which she captioned: “Sunny day vibes”.
Chanelle is mother to Blakely, 10, and Frankie, three, and she said that being slimmer is helping her to enjoy the hot weather with her children.
She posted a comparison picture and wrote: “Losing so much body fat has made the heat enjoyable instead of unbearable.
“Plus, this summer I can actually fit down the treehouse slide which Frankie has loved because I can actually play with him this year. (Blakely still maintains I am uncool and embarrassing regardless of whether I can fit down the slide or not lol).
“No holidays abroad for us this year anymore, but Costa del Yorkshire is good enough for us. We had Turkey and Mexico cancelled… what about you guys?
“The diff in weight between these pics is 106lbs and dress sizes are 18 and 10 (uk) #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #travel #mumofboys #mumlife #mumsofinstagram #bariatricsurgery #healthylifestyle.”
Chanelle recently revealed that she had finally reached her goal weight, as she posted side by side selfies of her before and after her huge weight loss.
The picture shows her on the left at around “17 stone” and on the right at her goal weight of 9 stone 10 pounds.
She looks incredibly confident in the after picture, showcasing her incredible weight loss in a skimpy black vest, tight patterned skirt and black boots.

The transformational snap was captioned: “So I hit a personal goal recently and now weigh back inside the 9 stones! But not everything is about what it says on the scales… in the first pic on the left I didn’t even know my weight because I didn’t want to…although I know it was around 17 stone as I had surgery not too long from that pic (I took that picture to use as inspiration to get healthy again).
She continued: “What I do know is that I couldn’t walk up the stairs that day and opted for the escalator on that trip. I also had to put talc under my boobs, in between my thighs and under my upper arms to stop the rashes I would get from chafing. I avoided every mirror or reflection and generally did not care about or like myself very much. On the right pic, I still get nervous around my reflection in case I see the person I was before who was so desperately unhappy and I still get under boob chafes, but I feel so proud to post myself looking and feeling confident and healthy again.
Chanelle went on to discuss her unhealthy relationship with food, writing: “My weight and addiction to food has held me back for so many years I have to pinch myself when I remember I am healthy again and can fit into clothes without a crying episode in the changing rooms. What is your goal weight / size? Mine is 9st10lb and size 10 clothes and I have finally made it.”
Chanelle has previously opened up to fans on social media about her incredible weight loss journey.
