Weight loss before and after transformation of size 18 woman who tried THIS diet plan | Diets | Life & Style

Danielle French, 28, said she could “barely fit into any of her clothes” after ballooning to 1st 4lb.

The mortgage advisor from Barnsley, who was a size 18 before, feared that she would be a “big bride” and would end up hating her wedding snaps.

She explained: “After getting engaged I continued to put on lots of weight until March 2015 when I got to my biggest and could barely fit in any of my clothes.

“I really didn’t want to be a big bride and look at my wedding photos and hate what I saw.

“I wanted to lose weight a year before I got married so I could go and try wedding dresses on without hating everything.”

After the bride-and-groom-to-be booked their wedding for November 2016, Danielle joined Slimming World and also began to follow inspirational Instagram weight loss pages to ditch the pounds.

She said: “I had been unhappy for so long about my weight and tried so many diets that I could never stick too.

“I started looking on Instagram at weight loss accounts and there were so many inspiring girls that had lost weight following Slimming World.

“I decided I would give it a go as it was one of the only diets I hadn’t tried.

“I joined online and created an Instagram account to post about my weight loss journey to keep me motivated.”

It took Danielle a year to get to her goal weight and she was able to walk down the aisle at Wentworth Castle as a tiny size six and at a weight of 8st.

She said: “Losing the weight has changed my life in so many more ways than I could have ever imagined.

“Before I hated going out with my friends because I felt so self-conscious and awful in everything I wore.

“I lived in leggings and baggy tops to hide the fact I had put on weight.

“I was also really unfit and got out of breath really easily whenever I walked more than half a mile.

“I suffer from IBS and since losing the weight and eating a much healthier balanced diet, I hardly ever get symptoms now.”

Danielle said she has gained “so much confidence” and has also rediscovered an old love – for fashion and shopping.

She added: “I don’t feel like the fat one out of my friends anymore. I love getting dressed up and going out.

“I hated shopping for clothes when I was bigger as I refused to buy bigger sizes.

“I can now walk in to a shop, try things on and like what I see.

She said all of her friends and family have been amazed by her transformation.

Danielle said: “They are all really proud of me and can’t believe how much weight I have lost and how different I look now.

“But on top of following Slimming World I don’t think I could have done it without my Instagram food blogging page and the support I get from all my lovely followers.”

Danielle shared her weight loss journey as it was revealed there are a number of tricks that can be used to ensure a diet plan works every time.
