Former Shameless star Tina Malone has been on quite a journey with her weight.
She has openly admitted that she has battled with her body shape and size but it seems that she is close to finally feeling happy in her own skin.
The 53-year-old actress had dropped an amazing 12 stone after having a gastric band fitted.
This led to her having folds of loose skin, which meant she once again lost confidence in her body.
To correct this, she had a whopping £50,000 makeover, which included a tummy tuck and face lift.
All that work though is starting to pay off as she was all smiles at a charity ball where she showed off her slim figure.
This is the first time she’s managed to get back in to a size 6 dress and the results are incredible.
Tina had revealed on Twitter that she had burst in to tears at fitting in to the dress and that she was overcome with emotion.
She admitted on Twitter how it felt to be where she had always wanted to be with her body.
She wrote: “I have been the baftas,nta’s, cannes film festival to name a few, but this wkd im going to my dear friend dawn wards creme ball,i FEEL GOOD X [sic?]…”
Her followers on Twitter were quick to let her know how fantastic she looked too.
Tina thanked all those that had helped her achieve her goals before adding: “All becoz of you just mentioned for the first time in my life i feel, and know i look gud, i just cried tryin my dress on, all changed my life [sic]…
“I’ve always been the pig in the room at these events,now i look and feel good,i cant stop cryin! size 6 ball gown!”
Tina has attributed her coming down dress sizes to a healthy eating regime.
She said that her transformation has been achieved with the help of fish and spinach… with a little bit of chocolate!
Tina said: “I eat spinach and fish every day…. but I do eat chocolate every day…
“So I am very careful about what I eat, I have to be… You know what… my mother always said I never do anything by halves…”
