A mother-of-two whose children suffered cruel taunts from their friends about her size has lost 5st in less than a year to beat the bullies.
Emma Thair-White’s weight tipped the scales at 15st after she began binge-eating and drinking a bottle of rosé wine a night to ease the pain of the death of her mother Ethel.
Emma, 43, from Grays, Essex was a dress size 22, leaving her with low self-esteem and she would avoid going to the shops for new clothes because she was so ashamed of her body.
She admits that her unhealthy habits escalated after her mother passed away.
‘I completely lost the plot when my mother died,’ she said. ‘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.
