She’s been sharing regular snaps showcasing her impressive body transformation since revealing that she had a secret gastric sleeve operation.

And Chanelle Hayes proudly showcased the results of her seven stone weight loss as she shared new before and after snaps to Instagram on Wednesday.

Chanelle’s arms and legs were much more toned in the ‘after’ snap, which saw her wearing a white sports bra and black pants.

She also flaunted her taut midriff as she held out her arms and shared the update on her fitness journey with fans.

Writing a lengthy caption alongside her post, Chanelle penned: ‘5 lessons I have learnt since having weight loss surgery.

‘1. It does not change my relationship with food. Bariatric surgery is only a tool, if I don’t use it consistently and correctly it will fail. Addressing abnormal relationships with food is so important if I want to become healthier physically and mentally.

‘2. Not everyone will understand my choice and that’s ok because it is MY journey. ‘Just eat less and move more’, ‘you’ve taken the easy option’, are a few comments I’ve heard along the way. Believe me, it is not easy (wish it was!) and it was not an option I took lightly. But it has been the best decision I’ve made in terms of my health.

‘3. Exercise is different now. I’ve always enjoyed working out (I’m actually a qualified PT, crazy as this may seem) but I actually feel proud to exercise and improve my body after all the junk I’ve been feeding it all these years. It’s my way of saying ‘hey body, I’m sorry for abusing you…here’s an olive branch’ (or a dumbbell).

‘4. Weight looks different on everybody. I am trying to stop focussing on other people’s weights because my only competitor is myself. Ten people could weigh exactly the same but have completely different body compositions. Selfishly (but thankfully) I now only care about myself and mine.

‘5. Even though I’ve lost weight, I’ve grown as a person. I have been every size you can think of and can empathise with the issues that come with them all. I realise people may plaster on a smile – at any size – but not be ok beneath the surface. 

‘Going through this experience has really given me a better understanding of private struggles and how easy it is to hide them.’

The star then ended her post saying: ‘Thought I would share this today on #womancrushwednesday because my #wcw this week is ME… and I don’t think I’ve ever been able to say that before.’
