Margaret Wilson, 49, revealed that her companion Brian’s workmates thought she was his new wife after she lost weight from a size of 32 to a creeping size of 10.

And she admitted that a healthy eating plan where she went from 24 to 10 pounds in just two years changed her life.

Margaret, who piled on the pounds four years a week from years of snacking and eating, said, “I’m physically half the woman I once was, but I’m a whole new me.

“My husband’s work colleagues thought we had split up and he was with another woman. It was so funny that nobody recognized me. “

Sewing machinist Margaret joined Weight Watchers, now known as WW, in 2017 after doctors repeatedly warned she was morbidly obese.
