Pamela Doyle lost 17 stone after her long term partner ended their relationship due to her weight.
The call worker from Tollcross, Glasgow lost seven stone alongside a £2000 deposit on her wedding castle, band and piper.
After being in a relationship with her former fiancée since the age of 17 Ms Doyle went from a healthy size 14 to size 26.
A combination of her military partner, who does not want to be named, being away for long periods of time and her lack of confidence resulted in her poor diet.
Working with personal trainer David Wilson of Rapid-Hypno Fitness made Ms Doyle end her bad diet of chips, curry and two litres of Irn Bru everyday.
A mixture of gym time, hypnosis and psychology helped Ms Doyle lose seven stone and regain her confidence.
