Chanelle Hayes hits the gym after 'struggling' with being trolled for weight
The TV personality said: ‘When my children are smiling so am I regardless of my size. That being said, over the last year it has affected my health therefore my ability to be the parent I want to be.’
She explained that she had managed to lose two stone after joining Celebrity Slim UK and is on the road to being the sort of mum she wants to be.
Chanelle went on: ‘I’m becoming a better mum by demonstrating to my children that healthiness equals happiness…
‘Parenting has always and will always come first but I’ve realised (I may be late to the party on this one) that getting to a healthy weight will set an example for my boys in a way nothing else can.’
However, prior to her post, the proud mum has opened up about being trolled over her ongoing battle with her weight.
In October last year, the former Big Brother star was pictured lapping up the sun in a yellow bikini while on holiday in Spain.
But in spite of enjoying herself, she was inundated with messages poking fun at her weight.
Speaking on This Morning earlier this year, a tearful Chanelle said: ‘Usually it’s like water off a duck’s back. But it hurt even more because I wasn’t expecting it.
‘I am trying really hard especially with two kids on my own. I’ve got the willpower of a sloth. I’ve genuinely really struggled.’
