Mum-of-three’s 5st weight loss after feeling ‘sad’ and ‘ashamed’ looking at her own wedding photos when she was a size 16 – The Sun

A MUM-OF-THREE was left so ashamed of her size 16 figure in her wedding photos that she was spurred on to lose 5st.

Clare Stone, from Taunton in Somerset, dropped from 13st 10lb to 8st 8lb, making her now a size 8.

Speaking to Femail, she revealed she had been left "sad" and "ashamed" about her appearance on the day she married husband Matthew in 2017 despite the nuptials being what she had "always dreamed of".

Upon receiving the pictures back, the mum admitted she edited the images to make herself appear slimmer.

"I knew it was wrong but it made me feel better at the time," she explained.

However, the original versions of the snaps had had a lasting impact on her.

"I hadn't realised just how much weight I had put on, but the photo confirmed exactly how I had been feeling," she said.

"I was tired all the time and would often have to take naps during the day just to make it through. I felt lazy and really run down."

Clare revealed that she knew it was time to overhaul her lifestyle.

She used a SlimFast plan to slim down to her goal weight.


It saw the busy mum eat six times a day.

This included three snacks, two meal replacements – a shake or bar – and her chosen 600 calorie meal.


As well as boosting her confidence, Clare wanted to feel fitter for her children.

She now says she has more energy, doesn't need to take naps and has seen an improvement in her skin.
