A size 22 chocoholic has managed to lose seven stone by kicking her habit - after being left shocked by photos of herself as a bridesmaid at her best friend's wedding.
Amy Wilson, 27, from Burton-upon-Tent, Staffordshire, saw her weight balloon to more than 17 stone after years of gorging on her favourite Galaxy bars, Lindt truffles and Hotel Chocolat treats.
The learning support assistant said she would eat as many as six chocolate bars a day when she was at her heaviest - having them for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
She said she was spurred on to lose weight after seeing a picture of herself at her best friend's wedding, where she says she was the largest guest.
After transforming her diet and exercise regime, Amy has managed to slim down from a size 22 to a trim size 10, and now weighs now 10st 7lbs.

Amy explained how she has always struggled with her weight in the past, mainly due to her love of chocolate.
'I always knew I had a problem with my weight but I never really bothered to lose it,' she said.
'I was always classed as overweight as a child and in my later teenage years I seemed to pile it on until I was obese.
'It was quite a gradual thing but any diets I chose didn't really seem to work for me.

'Junk food was definitely my downfall and I would always go for convenience over nutrition.'
She added that there were days when the only thing should would eat was chocolate.  






'Breakfast would be chocolate, lunch would be chocolate and tea I would have some chocolate. I could easily go through six bars a day. I absolutely loved it,' she said.
'My favourite chocolate would be lint, Hotel Chocolat and Galaxy, although I do like more. Easter was one of my favourite times of year.
'I loved all the different varieties of chocolate eggs on offer. I always wanted to be thinner, it was like a mental battle and chocolate always won.

Amy said she first tried losing weight ahead of her best friend's wedding, but she struggle to lose more than a stone and a half.
'The wedding was in July 2016 and during those months I was doing calorie counting,' she said.
'I managed to lose one-and-a-half stone but couldn't shift any more. I probably wasn't trying too hard.
'I hit sort of a plateau with calorie counting, and my dress for the wedding was size 20.'
Amy said she was left 'shocked' by the photographs from the wedding, which saw her wearing a pastel pink gown.

 'A couple of weeks after the wedding my friend sent me the photographs and I was shocked. Even though I'd lost some weight I was still the biggest person there,' she explained.
'It upset me but was good in a way because I knew there and then that I wanted to lose even more weight.
'I wanted to be healthier and I knew I had to really tackle my love of chocolate.'
The learning support assistant said she managed to lose the pounds by transforming her diet, as well as going for regular runs.
'I would go to my local Slimming World once a week,' she said. 'I was given foods such as lean meat, fish, potatoes, and an array of vegetables and fruits.

 'I've lost about six-and-a-half stone since I started Slimming World. They allow you a certain amount of Syns, and I'm allowed about 15 a day.
'One Syn is about 20 calories, and all my Syns pretty much go on chocolate. I don't go mad, I just eat a tiny square of chocolate.
'I know I don't want to go back to the size I was before so I find it easy to stick through.
'I haven't stopped eating chocolate but I think appreciate it more because it's a treat instead of a luxury.
'I don't really have a meal or diet plan, Slimming World has cook book and in group session people just give out recipes.'

 Amy said she has already managed to exceed her expectations when it comes to weight loss. 
'My original weight target was 11st 6lbs but I hit that last June, so I lowered it to 10st 9lbs but I hit that in November last year,' she said.






'I'm now currently 10st 7lbs, and at a weight were I can finally run. Once I lost weight I just wanted to get healthier, so I started to run.
'I always wanted to run when I was younger but wasn't able to due to health problems.
'I run in parks and signed up to the 'Couch to 5k challenge'.

'It's a staggered programme where at the end of it you have enough stamina to run 5k.'
Amy says that her weight loss has made her feel a lot more confident in her own skin.
'I still enjoy my chocolate but in moderation,' she said.  'I am looking forward to Easter, I always have, but this year I've not asked for any Easter Eggs.
'I've instead asked for mini eggs or a Malteser chocolate bunny, so I can eat them in little bits over a long time.'
