Staring at the picture of her and her pregnant sister, Krystina Wright made a life-changing decision.

The family snapshot was taken at her sister’s baby shower but though her sibling was eight months pregnant, the 29-year-old was shocked to notice that she herself looked far bigger.

“I looked at the snap with horror,” she told Mail Online. “For the first time I realised that I had to do something about my weight once and for all.”

Like many women the mum-of-two from Warwickshire, had seen her weight gradually creep up over the years until, at her heaviest, Krystina tipped the scales at 243 pounds and wore a dress size 22.

But the baby shower picture provided her with the inspiration she needed to overhaul her lifestyle. The first step was joining her local Slimming World, where she learnt that a few simple changes to her diet and exercise regime would help kick-start her body transformation.

Fast forward 7 months and after dropping a whopping 95 lbs, Krystina has now been crowned ‘Greatest Loser’ at her local Slimming World group. And the mum-of-two, who has been documenting her fitness journey on Instagram and in a blog, is pretty proud of her weight loss achievement.

“I did it! I’m officially a target member!” she wrote alongside a side-by-side selfie on Instagram. “In 7 months I’ve lost 6 stone 10 pounds! I am thrilled to bits! I started at a size 22 & now a size 8-10! I’m a busy mum of two toddlers, I’m not able to spend hours in the gym, I’m a real woman that eats food, no potions, pills or shakes! I’ve gone through, Christmas, Easter & been on holiday & never gained once! I’m proud to be a total loser & can’t recommend @slimmingworld enough, it’s life changing!”

Krystina credits switching takeaways for ‘fakeaways’, more healthy versions of her favourite meals, and taking up spin and exercise classes. She regularly posts images of her health-pimped meals as well as transformation shots to help motivate her 14K followers into kick-starting their own fitness journey.

“I feel like a totally different person, and I look like one too,” she said of her transformation. “I’m proud that my boys will know me as the fit, healthy, woman I am now.”
