Hairdresser reveals her impressive FIVE stone weight loss
Hairdresser who claims her busy job caused her to binge on ‘anything in sight’ including takeaways and microwave meals reveals her FIVE stone weight loss
- Chelsea Jones, 28, from Newton-lee-Willows, weighed 15st 4lbs at her heaviest
- Full-time hairdresser told how was too busy in the day to eat so would go without
- When work finished she would binge anything in sight and piled on the pounds
- She has since joined Slimming World and has now lost an impressive five stone
A woman whose stressful job led her to binge eat every night has revealed her impressive five stone weight loss.
Chelsea Jones, 28, a full-time hairdresser from Newton-lee-Willows, told how she was constantly on her feet throughout the day, tending to clients and appointments, and was so busy, it left her with little time to make healthy meal choices.
Instead, she wouldn’t eat during the day and would often leave herself hungry. However, when her work day ended, she’d feast on takeaway meals, McDonalds, microwave dinners and ‘everything in sight’ – leading her to eventually tip the scales at 15st 4lbs.
‘My weight gain spanned over the years, out I’d say since starting high school I got bigger and bigger,’ she explained. ‘I was fed up of standing out on pictures as the “big one” and not being happy when shopping, or always going to social events and feeling uncomfortable.’

She continued: ‘During the day I’d go all day without eating, then finish work and eat anything in sight.
‘I would eat multi-packs of crisps, chocolates, microwave meals, doughnuts and McDonald’s takeaways on a regular basis.
Chelsea had always tried losing weight over the years but never managed to stick to a regime until one day something ‘clicked’. It was then she realised she needed to change her lifestyle for the better.
‘I was bothered about how I looked and never did anything about it,’ she explained. ‘I’d tried to do things when I was younger but I never stuck to it.’

‘One day something clicked and I wanted to make myself feel better and lose weight, so I went and joined Slimming World.’
Chelsea joined Slimming World in September last year and has since lost 5st 6lbs through flexible dieting and regular exercise.
Her typical meals include yogurt and fruit for breakfast, chicken salad for lunch, a ‘fakeaway’ recipe from a Slimming World recipe book, and low-calorie jelly and fruit as snacks throughout the day.
She also attended spin class twice a week and did her own workouts in the gym as well.

‘My weight loss secret is Slimming World,’ she said. ‘It’s amazing and so flexible with food optimising.’
