After shedding 3st in three months, BB11 champ Josie is feeling great

TAGS:

Big Brother 11 winner Josie Gibson has gone from 16st 7lb to 13st 7lb and is now a size 12-14.

She’s dropped 3st in three months by hitting the gym four times a week and eating a delivery diet.

Josie, 25  – who lives with boyfriend and fellow BB star John James Parton – ditched alcohol and is trying her very best to avoid junk food.

Whenever there’s a canapé I can’t say no,’ she admits.

Then I’ll phone my trainer Paulette Sybliss and say: “I’m so sorry!”

‘I’ve been quite strict but I still enjoy myself.

‘I didn’t just want a diet; I wanted a lifestyle change.

‘There’d be no point working out for eight hours a day because I’m not going to be able to keep to that.

I’ve only recently started enjoying the exercise and getting used to that amazing feeling you get after it.

‘At first I could do about three skips but now I wouldn’t think anything of doing 100.

‘It’s really changed my fitness levels.’

Josie says that noticing her appearance changing proved an amazing boost.

My skin feels better, I’ve got more energy, I can stay on the go for longer and I’ve only got one chin now!’ she laughs.

I like my cheekbones, too – I hadn’t seen them for a long time.

‘I’m buying loads of new clothes but I don’t want to be a skinny Minnie.

‘I want to be a curvy size 12.

‘Some weeks I was dropping 4lb but now it’s about 2lb: it’s getting harder.’
