Chanelle Hayes showed off her incredible seven stone weight loss in gorgeous before-after snaps.
The TV personality took to her Instagram account on Sunday to share her proud moment with her fans and said that her weight loss allowed her to fully enjoy the hot weather.
“I have definitely enjoyed the hot weather much more this year,” she captioned her moving post. “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?”
She continued: “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.”
In the before snap, Chanelle donned a blue tube top with green leaves decorating it.
Meanwhile, in the after picture, the star sported a simple black spaghetti strap top and accessorised with large glasses.

The Big Brother star had undergone Bariatric surgery in a bid to lose weight.
Before surgery, the star weighed 242lbs and she is now 141lbs.
At the beginning of May, she showed fans a before and after photo of herself standing in her underwear with her arms held outwards.
Alongside the snaps, Chanelle penned in a lengthy post: “5 lessons I have learnt since having weight loss surgery.
“1. It does not change my relationship with food. Bariatric surgery is only a tool, if I don’t use it consistently and correctly it will fail. Addressing abnormal relationships with food is so important if I want to become healthier physically and mentally.”
She continued: “2. Not everyone will understand my choice and that’s ok because it is MY journey. “Just eat less and move more”, “you’ve taken the easy option”, are a few comments I’ve heard along the way. Believe me, it is not easy (wish it was!) and it was not an option I took lightly. But it has been the best decision I’ve made in terms of my health.
She went on to say she now feels proud to exercise and “improve her body”.
