A woman from Tollcross has lost almost 7 stone after she was dumped by her boyfriend ahead of their wedding.
She and her fiance lost their £2000 deposit when the wedding was cancelled which was due to take place in August.
The 17-stone bride-to-be Pamela Doyle was devastated when her long-term boyfriend called off the big day but used the experience to do something about her weight.
The 31-year-old ditched her diets of curry, burgers and two litres of Irn-bru a day.
Doyle hired a personal trainer and used a combination of hypnosis, psychology and gym training which has left her ex-fiancé stunned by her appearance.
The call centre worker said: “I steadily put on weight throughout my teens and my twenties and things got gradually worse. On a typical day I would have macaroni cheese and chips for lunch, snack on crisps and chocolate, then have curry followed by ice cream for tea.
She is now just under 10 and a half stone and is still in contact with her ex-partner.
