Hayley says quitting alcohol was key, but it hasn’t impacted her social life.
She said: 'People don’t realise how many calories and how much sugar is in that glass of wine or beer that they love.
'It was hard to quit at first, as I’ve always been a social person. But I realised that I could still go out with the girls and not drink.
'Most of the time, people don’t even notice I’m not drinking as my soda water and lime looks no different to what everyone else has in their hands.'
She has no hard feelings toward the ex who brought up her weight, either.
'If my ex hadn’t made that comment, I don’t know if I would have been where I am today. I’m thankful for it leading me on the journey I’m on.'
