Josie Gibson ‘learnt to love’ curves after losing six stone and cashing in on fame with workout DVD

Josie Gibson declared she loves her curves and would never lose them, after years of yo-yo dieting.

The 39-year-old This Morning icon – who last week declared her ‘love’ for Stephen Mulhern – is a former Big Brother contestant and was one of the many reality stars to have cashed in on fame by releasing a fitness DVD, Josie Gibson: 30 Second Slim back in 2013.

Inspiration at the time came after a holiday snap left her shocked by her appearance. So she embarked on impressive weight loss journey which saw her shrink from a size 18 to a 12 in only nine weeks, stunning fans with her body transformation and eventually losing six stone in a year. She even went on Loose Women to reveal her ‘excess skin’.

And while the star has always been an open book about her weight struggles over the years since she found fame on the reality show in 2010, she has said she would never suit being “stick thin”.

In early 2021, Josie was named as an ambassador for WW, the company formally known as Weight Watchers and said she was thrilled to have the help as she continued her journey towards her dream body.

Josie exclusively told OK! at the time: “I don’t know what weight it would be but I want to be between a size 12 and 14. I wouldn’t suit being stick thin. I love my curves.”

She explained how she was tracking how much food she ate, how much water she drank, and how much sleep she achieved, which had revolutionised her approach to weight loss.

She told us: “I feel really good and I’ve got lots of energy. It’s an app on my phone and it helps me make better decisions, but not just about food. It’s about the four pillars of health.”

“You’ve got your profile on there and you’ve got exercise workouts to choose from, where you can set yourself a goals each month.”

“Then you can track all your food and if you’re eating lots of fruit and veg you can earn personal points from doing that.”

Josie also revealed that learning to get a good night of sleep was her best lesson from the program.

She said: “I realised that’s where I was going wrong before. I wasn’t sleeping right and was so tired so I was just eating crap.”

“Heaven knows what size I would have been now if I hadn’t joined WW as I was just in a vicious circle.”

Back in 2020, Josie hit back at a cruel online troll who tried to shame her about her body size.

A follower on Twitter wrote: “I don’t mean to be rude but @Josiestweet is absolutely vile. It breaks my heart when I look at how fat she has got again.”

The reality star quote-tweeted the follower and wrote: “But you are being rude, so you do mean to be rude.”

“Don’t let my weight gain break your heart, honestly there is so many more things in the world to care about that really do matter.”
