Chanelle Hayes admits she’s gained back a stone during family holiday

But she reckons 'making memories' is better than being on social media

Ex Big Brother contestant Chanelle Hayes has told fans she’s gone up a dress size following a "really bad six weeks".

The 31-year-old revealed to her 104,000 Instagram followers yesterday she has "totally fallen off the bandwagon [sic]" when it comes to her diet, especially because she has been on a family holiday.

The mum-of-two - who has struggled with her fluctuating weight for years - is reported to have dropped over three stone since the start of 2019.

Earlier this summer she was able to fit her slimmer figure back into her size 12 jeans for the first time in three years.

It’s a marathon not a sprint so I’m not being hard on myself, just ready to get back to how well I was doing and focusing back on my health.

Sorry about the “before” pic quality, I had to really zoom in to chop off everyone else. Comparing these two pics makes me feel positive.... Here’s the stats: November 2018 vs May 2019 Size 18-20 outfit vs size 12 outfit 15st 6lbs vs 11st 13lbs 84 RHR vs 54 RHR In losing all that excess weight I have gained more confidence and happiness. If I had been EXTREME with my eating choices I am sure I could be much smaller and lighter than I am now however I have been working HARDDDD at keeping (and increasing) my muscle mass. Over the rest of this year I will be cutting down my body fat slowly and steadily. I want to make a point that I am choosing to take my time in order to keep my muscle. I want to lose FAT, not muscle, not bone mass density, just fat. This is a long term change I am making so that I can prosper in the long term results. There are no quick fixes. Believe me - I’ve tried everything! Hard work, perseverance, consistency and dedication are KEY. Hopefully at the end of the year I will be able to make the second picture a “during” photo as I will have a new “after”. #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlifting #lift #girlswholift #fitnessmotivation #healthylifestyle #mummy #challenge #beforeandafter

But it seems the social media personality is frustrated by more recent changes to her body - even though her focus has been on being a busy mum chasing her kids about.

Apologising for taking a break from social media while away with her sons, Chanelle admitted she feels as if she has neglected her healthy approach - and has consequently gone from a size 12 to a size 14.

Vowing to resume her efforts, she continued: "I can also tell in myself that I feel softer and have lost definition which is such a shame.

"When I am home I need to get back on it big time as I can feel with every pound gained, a little confidence has been lost."

She added: "It’s a marathon not a sprint so I’m not being hard on myself, just ready to get back to how well I was doing and focusing back on my health."

Explaining why her social media accounts had not been flooded with holiday snaps, Chanelle went on to say she was glad of a screen break.

"Running around after these two monsters didn’t leave me much time for selfies so this was my only one lol," she commented.

Chanelle continued: "Splashing, discos, slides, ice creams defo took priority over any pics this last week for sure. Memories over social media any day."

Not been on social media all week apart from some “red herrings” on my story about being at home. I’ve been away with the boys but didn’t want to say because I didn’t want any pap shots out and for some reason they seem to love following me around even on holiday and humiliating me with bad angles in a bikini. Hopefully none will appear and I will be so disappointed if they do as we just wanted a private family time away. I have had a really bad 6 weeks diet and nutrition wise. Totally fallen off the bandwagon and have gone from the size 12 I got down to back upto a 14. I can also tell in myself that I feel softer and have lost definition which is such a shame. When I am home I need to get back on it big time as I can feel with every pound gained, a little confidence has been lost. It’s a marathon not a sprint so I’m not being hard on myself, just ready to get back to how well I was doing and focussing back on my health. That said, we’ve had such a lovely holiday and the boys have loved every minute of it. Sorry about the pic (Blakely says I look like a man here) but running around after these two monsters didn’t leave me much time for selfies so this was my only one lol. Splashing, discos, slides, ice creams defo took priority over any pics this last week for sure. Memories over social media any day. Definitely need a holiday with a book on my own now 😂😂. What’s everybody else been upto?? #singlemom #singleparent #summer #summerholidays #holiday #holidays #parenting #kids #health #lifestyle #weightloss
