Lisa Riley weight loss
Lisa Riley has opened up about her plans to have surgery to remove her excess skin following her incredible 10 stone weight loss.

Speaking to Star magazine, the actress and TV personality said that dropping from a UK size 30 to a size 12 in less than a year had left her wanting results that she can no longer get from exercise alone.

'I've worked hard on this,' she said. 'The excess skin is mammoth. I'm getting rid of all skin on my stomach, too, because no trainer can get rid of that.'

'I lost weight the healthy way. I didn't cheat. It's slow but it worked.'

Lisa revealed that she plans to have surgery on her breasts, as well as the removal of her excess skin, to complete the body she's spent months striving for - but added that even her progress so far has been lifechanging.

'The feeling of fitting into a size 12 is the best natural high in the world,' she said. 'I feel amazing.'

Earlier this year, Lisa discussed the motivation behind her surgery plans in in an interview with OK! magazine, saying that she finds her thighs 'repugnant'.

'My front and inner thighs are repugnant - they're like a sheared poodle! I can clap without using my hands because my body claps for me during Zumba.'

Lisa has strongly denied claims of weight loss surgery, and even underwent a lie detector test during an appearance on Loose Women to prove that she lost the weight naturally.

'I have smaller portions now,' she said. 'I don't believe in fad diets, even though I have tried them before. I have no food after 6.30pm.

'I only eat a carb if I need one and absolutely no bread or booze. I've been going to zumba classes which is fun. I find the gym is boring.'

The soap actress added: 'Doing Strictly [in 2012] kick started my metabolism. I saw a difference dancing seven hours a day and then I just ate soup as I didn't want all that food jiggling around while I danced.

'It's hard for me to see my reflection now. I used to have a shelf from here to here and where's that gone?

'It is insane. I looked so different before. I was happy before but now I am happy and proud.'
