Chanelle Hayes has revealed plans to slim down to a size 10 before she ties the knot with partner Ryan Oates.
Speaking to Closer magazine, Chanelle, who welcomed second son Frankie at the end of August, admitted that she’d planned to lose weight before she fell pregnant, and is now even more determined to reach her goal.
‘Before I found out I was pregnant my plan was to get down to a size 10 by my 30th birthday in November,’ she said. ‘That’s not going to happen now, but I want to lose weight.’
‘Since having Frankie I’m more wobbly, I’ve got stretch marks on my stomach and my boobs are flat – empty Z cups!’
‘I bend over to dry my legs after a shower and my belly is touching my knees.’
She added that she was intending to undergo surgery to have her breasts lifted, and would consider further operations if her new healthy regime leaves her with excess skin.
Despite declaring that she’s ‘never felt less sexy in her life’, Chanelle said that her other half had been ‘so supportive.’
‘He loves me whatever size I am,’ she confirmed. ‘I’d love to get married, but only when I’ve lost weight. I can’t wait to feel sexy again.’
Chanelle has fluctuated between a size eight and her current reported size 16-18 in the past, and has always been honest about her hopes to return to a smaller dress size.
Before giving birth, she made her motivation to shed the pounds very clear when she shared a post on her Instagram account of her changing figure, writing: ‘Done it before, will do it again! 👌🏼💪🏽 #PostBabyBodyMotivation.’
Fans were quick to send the former model supportive messages about her body, with many advising her to go easy on herself.
‘Don’t be too hard on yourself, do it for you!’ one said in the comments. ‘I’ve just lost 3 stone and also have an under active thyroid, good luck.’
‘You can and will,’ one told her. ‘I’ve recently shed 8 stones and after having 4 babies in 9 years it’s a nightmare to try and lose it all again! But regardless .. you’re a real inspiration to all women. You carry yourself so well.’
