22-stone mum is now boudoir model after shedding third of weight

A mother who weighed more than 22 stone and refused to wear a bathing suit has transformed her life after losing one third of her weight and becoming a boudoir model.

Caralee Loonat, 42, lost all her confidence and faced multiple health problems after she ballooned to 22st 5lb.

The mum was so worried about what people thought of her she would never wear a swimsuit and gorged on unhealthy meals and snacks.

But as Huddersfield Examiner reports, Caralee decided to fight the flab in 2016 and joined a dieting club.

Since then, the mum has lost a whopping 7st and is now brimming with a newfound confidence.

"I felt I had lost my identity and wanted myself back," the super slimmer, from Batley, West Yorks., said.

"It was just being a typical mum, putting everyone else first and you end up snacking.

"I went to the doctors where I was struggling with sleep apnea and relied heavily on inhalers. I was referred to Weight Watchers (WW) by the doctor for a free 12-week trial."

Caralee, originally from Montana, US, now regularly goes to the gym and has posed for two boudoir photos.

And she is confident she’ll slim to 11 stone.

She continued: "I have done not one but two boudoir photo shoots with my newfound confidence and even though I have a little way to go I am feeling the benefits and know I can do this.

"It [the photoshoots] was a different experience because I was really scared but it was an enjoyable experience in the end.

"I now go to the gym seven days a week on average and I even ran the Race for Life for the first time in July 2017 in a time of 43 minutes – that’s 22 minutes off the average time.

"I haven’t used my inhalers in over a year and my sleep apnea while not totally gone is getting better.

"My lifestyle has changed massively thanks, to the WW plan. I started this journey to find myself again, not only have I been able to get back to myself but confidence has grown leaps and bounds."
