Josie felt fat compared to stick-thin ex John James
Now columnist Josie Gibson is constantly battling with her weight. She’s recently been to boot camp again and is down to a size 16 – but she’d love to be a size 12.
Lazing around in front of the cameras, she put on 2st.
‘I never felt so fat in my life as when I came out of that house,’ admits Josie, 26.
‘John James is so slim and thin and I’m so big that I thought we looked stupid together.
‘Even he used to say we looked silly together. It made me feel horrible about myself.
‘But because we were in love, we spent a lot of time going out for big dinners, the weight was piling on.’
When Josie and John James split in March last year, she was a size 22 – and getting bigger.
To keep control of her figure, she’s now learnt to stop scoffing rubbish.
‘I would just eat carbs – whether it was pies, pasties, chips or crisps – you name it, I would eat it,’ she confesses.
‘I was disgusted by my body.’
