Lisa Riley looks unrecognisable after dropping SEVEN dress sizes.
During an appearance on Loose Women today, the likes of Ruth Langsford accidentally walked past the former Emmerdale actress, not realising who she was.
“I think this is great,” she gushed afterwards. “This is the reaction I never thought I could get.
“To be honest, it’s still hard to see my reflection because I look so different. It’s insane when I look back at old photos. I am so proud of what I’ve achieved – but I needed to do it. I am so happy now.
“Don’t get me wrong, I’m never going to be Kate Moss. But sometimes, I get old clothes out of my wardrobe and when I try them on, they fit like a tent!
“I would like to stress that I don’t believe in fad diets or anything like that. I don’t believe in diets where you’re allowed to cheat. I f you’re going to do something, do it properly. I lost the weight the sensible way.”
Opening up about why she decided to lose so much weight, Lisa explained that a visit to see her father in hospital was her motivation.
“He was taken in because doctors were looking for prostate cancer – he’s come out the other end now,” she added. “However, while I was on the hospital ward to see him, I noticed there were 21 men with Type 2 diabetes. I didn’t want to be another statistic and so the fear factor kicked in. It was like a bulb going off in my head.”
In a bid to lose weight, Lisa then started eating healthier food, enrolled in local zumba and yoga classes and cut out alcohol completely.
However, she does occasionally still get cravings for chocolate and crisps and when she does, she allows herself to have some – but only in moderation.
