Super-slimmer Emma White lost five stone is less than a year after hearing how her children were being taunted about their 'fat mum.'
The shop worker's weight had shot up to 15-stone after she began binge eating and drinking a bottle of rosé wine a night to get over the death of her mother Ethel.
Emma, 43, was a dress size 22, lost all her self-esteem and didn't have the confidence to go out to the shops for new clothes because she was so ashamed of her body.
Emma's weight had yo-yoed for 25 years after she first put on weight as an 18-year-old and she had piled on the pounds after having both her children.
The final straw which made her turn her life around was when one of her children told her she had been described as their 'fat mum '. She began exercising regularly, cut out the booze and completely changed her diet - eating low-fat meals and nutrition bars.
She lost a staggering 70lb in a year - almost 1.5lb a week - going down to just 10st and a shapely size 12.
The mum-of-two lost a total of 124cm of fat from her legs, arms, waist and chest.
One consequence of her weight loss is that boobs shrank, too - she went down from a 36E to a 34C.
Emma celebrated her success by having a £6,000 boob uplift and implants - and she loves her new 34F bust.
Emma said: "I am so thrilled at how everything has panned out.
"I completely lost the plot when my mother died. I just ate and ate and was drinking far too much alcohol - around a bottle of a night. I only found out later that it is the sweetest and most calorific wine.
"I didn't care what I ate and if I fancied treating myself, I would. My favourite was Ben & Jerry's ice cream. I could easily eat a whole tub on my own in one go.
"I had no self-esteem and didn't care about what I looked like. "My weight had yo-yoed before, especially after having my children, but this time I didn't try to lose the weight again and I went up to a size 22.
"I was so ashamed of my body that I took the pictures you can see today of me at my biggest. I thought this would give me the inspiration to lose lots of weight."
After the 'fat mum' jibe, Emma knuckled down, quit the fattening snacking and began exercising regularly by walking her dog Morris, a Hungarian Vizsla.
But after several months of hard work she had only lost a stone.
She realised she need some extra help to really kick start her weight loss. She began taking Forza Supplements' Raspberry K2 capsules.
These gave her extra energy before sessions at the gym and curbed her appetite.
She took two in the morning and then one at lunch - and the weight fell off her. Emma, of Grays, Essex, lost staggering four stone in five months - getting down to her ideal weight of 10st.
She said: "I don't put anything in my body without checking very carefully first and the capsules definitely worked for me.
"They gave me the added zip I needed to lose the weight and keep me away from the Ben & Jerry's. They are my willpower in a bottle.
"I lost a stone a month after I started taking them and quickly got down to my ideal weight."
She was finally happy with her body but there was only one problem: her boobs had disappeared.
She said: "As the weight fell off me my boobs just went. I had always been proud of my figure but I couldn't bear to look at myself in the mirror.
"I have always put my children first throughout all my life. My husband Shayne said to me, 'Just for once we are going to put you first.'
"I am so pleased with my new boobs. They look amazing."
Emma has promised her children Eva, 18, and 12-year-old Max that she won't put the weight back on.
She said: "I want them to be proud of their mum. I have worked so hard to get where I am now. I am not going to let all that good work go to waste."
