She would put mayo on every meal.
She also tucked into Chinese takeaways and kebabs at least three times a week and lots of chocolate.
But Charlotte, from Gloucester, changed her ways earlier this year after a close friend died.
She said: “It made me think. She was slim and I am overweight.”
A gym exercise regime and a healthier diet have now slimmed her down to an amazing size ten.
Charlotte had many obstacles to overcome, one of her biggest being exercise.
She said: “One of the biggest was the gym. I think going to the gym takes bravery and I was so nervous.
“But I managed it. Since then I’ve trained up as a PT.
“I’ve lost all this weight purely through diet and exercise. I haven’t popped any pills or any fads, just the old fashion way.
“I get asked that all the time. I also get asked if I’ve had a stomach sleeve a lot, too.”
Charlotte says she is now much happier and able to chase after kids Oakley, 18 months, Henry, three, Logan, eight, and Lacey, ten, without becoming breathless.
She added: “My tastebuds have also changed, black olives and bananas are now some of my favourite foods now, whereas before, I would turn my nose up at them.
“I also eat a lot of chicken, rice, mainly protein based.
“I used to eat loads of chocolate too, but now I won’t eat the whole bar, I will have it in moderation.
“No I never eat it anymore; I prefer my low fat salad cream these days.”
