Doesn't she look amazing? Bikini confident at last

Lunch was a sandwich with crisps followed by a chocolate bar – all washed down with a fizzy drink.

Her bad habits meant that, by the age of 18, she was a size 20 and weighed 16st 7lb.

Jodie would cover up in layers and cardis

In her teens, she went on a girls' holiday, and spent the whole time by the pool - covering up her figure with layers and a black cardi.

But after overhearing a group of lads referring to her as "the fat one", Jodie was shocked into making a change.

She joined Slimming World, and by the time she turned 18, had hit her target weight of 10st 10lb.

Now, she feels confident enough to wear a bikini, and has even learned to love her stretchmarks.

"They remind me of how far I've come," she says.
