‘I split up with my ex, changed my habits, worked on sobriety, and reinvented myself and managed to lose 196lbs in four years.

‘Despite being happy that I had lost all the weight, I was left with an extensive amount of loose skin and it made me feel trapped.

‘I felt like I would never be able to escape the girl I had been before and referred to it as my skin suit that held me back from doing and wearing a lot because I was incredibly self-conscious about it.

‘After the skin removal, I went from a size 26 at my heaviest to a size 6/8 – it was amazing.
