After a stranger said to her “YOU’RE PRETTY … for A FAT GIRL” a single Mum loses 12 stones of her weight.

Tanya Austin, 26, from Weston-Super-Mare, A SINGLE mum-of-one, had always felt like the fat friend on nights out with her mates because of her 24 stone frame.

“I’d been large my whole adult life, ever since I was in my late teens. Then when I started enjoying boozy nights out as I got older, things only got worse. I hated the way I looked, but I didn’t want to be the fat friend that was always moaning about being big. So instead, I threw myself into being the life and soul of the party.”

She hated the way she looked but instead of changing her life style she continued pretending that everything is going alright, she said “I kept going out with my mates, pretending to be happy, but I hated my body so much. I would watch my friends as they paired off with handsome strangers on nights out, but I was always left alone. I was the eternal fat friend.”

Then one night, a stranger dropped a brutal bombshell. “It was just another night out,” Tanya said. “I was with some girls and a group of guys were talking to us. We were having a laugh and joking around, but suddenly one of the men just turned to me and said: ‘You’re pretty… for a fat girl.’ I was gobsmacked.”

She tried many times to lose weight but she couldn’t protect her self from her bad habits, however,  the cruel stranger’s words continued to haunt her, and when she fell pregnant after a short fling in 2015 she decided it was time to change for good.

She said: “It wasn’t anything serious, and I certainly hadn’t planned a baby, but falling pregnant was a dream come true. I was really excited.” , and as a single mum “I didn’t want to be the fat mum in the school playground. I had to lose weight to be a role model for Logan.”

Inspired by love for her son, Tanya threw out all the junk food from her cupboards and took control of her diet, but as she needed more support, she signed up in Slimming world, “Within the first week of following their plan, I had already started to lose weight again.”

Tanya continued to lose weight at a steady rate and within a year she had shed a further eight stone, losing a staggering 12 stone in total. “I couldn’t believe I’d lost 12 stone. I don’t think it really hit home until I finally slipped into a size 12 dress. I felt amazing. I’d spent years admiring thinner women, and now I was finally one of them.”
