Mother shares candid naked snaps of her three stone weight gain after first lockdown

A mother-of-seven who gained three stone in the first lockdown has revealed her stunning transformation in just six months after losing the added weight.

Tess Giddings, from Bournemouth, felt 'unhealthy, tired and knew something had to change' after putting on the extra pounds.

She changed her diet - avoiding junk food, sugar and 'eating clean' - and has since showcased her impressive makeover on TikTok.

In her clip, shared earlier this month, Tess documents her weight loss journey by sharing before and after photographs - including candid naked snaps of herself when at her heaviest.

Tess - whose children are aged between three and 14 - shared footage of herself from November 2020.

She explained: 'I had gained over three stone in the first lockdown. I felt so unhealthy, tired and knew something had to change.'

Tess doesn't divulge her lowest and highest weights, but instead shows naked photos of herself when thought to be at her heaviest.

'I didn't want to focus on weight loss goals because I have spent years suffering with eating disorders and fad diets,' she admitted. 'I decided to focus on getting healthy.'

But the mother confessed that the beginning of her weight loss journey wasn't easy, as she started to change her diet.

'The first two weeks were so hard,' she recalled. '[I cut] out junk, sugar and eating clean but I got through it.'

Soon, Tess started exercising to further increase her weight loss, by using a health and fitness app called Jonple, which offers customers a personalised plan to help them successfully reach their fitness goals.

Tess said: 'I started feeling so much better, eating clean and started to exercise with the help of an app called Jonple.

'As the weeks went by, I noticed how much more energy I had. I could notice the weight dropping off,' she added.

'Fast forward to today - April 2021, four months on. I feel so much better! All the hard work was worth it and I feel so healthy which was the goal,' she revealed.

The video racked up hundreds of likes on TikTok, with plenty of impressed fans commenting on the clip.
