3-4 maybe, but she would have had to have been almost 16 stone for that to be possible.
before and after
And that after is photoshopped to death.
Sleb weight lies make me cross.

Yanbu. I presumed it was 3-4 stone. Which is still a great achievement,but 7.5? Not sure about that at all.

HuffAndHufflepuff Sun 20-Jan-13 14:46:24

I'm 5'2 and once weighed 21st, at my lightest ever I was 11st. I never did any before pics so I don't know if people would have believed I'd lost 10st. Why wouldn't you? Because 7.5 stone seems too much to lose? Because it's too big of an achievement?

diddl Sun 20-Jan-13 14:53:48

I´m only 5ft tall & used to weigh 7.5 stone-so to me it´s a whole person!

ErikNorseman Sun 20-Jan-13 14:55:25

Because she doesn't look 16 stone in the first one. It just doesn't seem realistic, like Vanessa feltz being a size 12. I know it's possible, but to me she doesn't look 15-16 stone in the first one. Slebs who are hawking fitness DVDs will lie to make their achievement seem greater. Just like she set up the pics in that awful green bikini.

FutTheShuckUp Sun 20-Jan-13 14:57:06

Wow Huff- how did you lose the weight?

kittykarate Sun 20-Jan-13 14:58:15

Back in 2011 The Sun (yes I know... not a reliable news source) said she'd lost 3 stone on her 'plan' http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/features/3332666/Lose-weight-with-Clare-Nasirs-plan.html

So I don't see how that's suddenly become 7 stone..

CecilyP Sun 20-Jan-13 14:58:52

So that would be reducing from about 15 stone 7 to about 8 stone. Don't know how tall she is but agree she doesn't really look over 15 stone in the before pics. Perhaps there are no pics of her at her absolute heaviest.

kittykarate Sun 20-Jan-13 14:59:33

Also, well done Huff! I admire anyone who has the strength and willpower to make a positive change to their lives like that.

kasbah72 Sun 20-Jan-13 14:59:56

I think they just misread someone else's story that say she slimmed DOWN to 7.5 stone. In the same story it says she went up to 10.5 stone which fits with the 2/3 stone weight loss. That sounds marginially more realistic!

BooCanary Sun 20-Jan-13 15:00:34

She looks about 13 stone to me in the before. Which would mean she is now 5.5 stone???

Flossiechops Sun 20-Jan-13 15:01:18

No way was she that heavy. I also wonder why on earth she was exercising in that skimpy outfit in the first place (the one prior to losing the weight)? I heard her being interviewed and she denied it was for her forthcoming fitness DVD but that she didn't realise she looked like she did......yea right! Have to say though she looks amazing now, fair play!

Mintyy Sun 20-Jan-13 15:02:40

Yanbu. She is a liar.

pixiestix Sun 20-Jan-13 15:03:32

How has she got her legs so smooth and gorgeous and cellulite free? How? HOW????? The more weight I lose the baggier I get sad

MrsLouisTheroux Sun 20-Jan-13 15:06:55

I think she does look 16 stone. Big people are heavier than you might think.
IME a 3 stone weight loss equalled dropping 2 dress sizes.
She has dropped 4 dress sizes so 6/7 stone sounds about right.

ErikNorseman Sun 20-Jan-13 15:08:29

Photoshop! Nobody has legs that smooth other than 21 year old Brazilian transsexuals models.

That Josie woman from big brother did the same thing. It's a career move. Be fat, have hideous photos taken by the paps, do a major diet/training regime then pretend you lost the weight in 6 months by doing a fitness DVD three times a week hmm

ErikNorseman Sun 20-Jan-13 15:10:09

Well I suppose it's possible.

BalloonSlayer Sun 20-Jan-13 15:15:13

There was someone in a purple bikini a couple of weeks ago on the front of two different magazines the same week. It was the same "before" picture.

One headline said she had lost 4 stone.

The other headline said she had lost 6 stone.

(I thought it looked like she had lost about 2 stone and TBH I thought she looked OK in the before picture anyway)

I think it might have been Josie Gibson Whoever the heck she is.

Basically, I think they say what they like.

I dunno. I was a size 16/18 at 16 stone. Now I'm a 14 at 13 stone, If i'm a size 8 I need to be just under 10 stone (ate all the pies while pg). So it doesn't seem beyond the realms of possibility.

BalloonSlayer Sun 20-Jan-13 15:16:54

x post with you, Erik

StuntGirl Sun 20-Jan-13 15:18:53

People never believe how much I really weigh. By the time I'm at my goal weight I'll have lost around a similar amount. It could easily be true.

I doubt she got the results through her dvd though. It will have more likely been down to a strict diet and some intense workouts with a personal trainer. Think about how quickly Janet Jackson always slims down.

CecilyP Sun 20-Jan-13 15:21:51

Are you tall, Horrace? I am a size 16-18 and I (only) weigh 12.5 stone.

DuckworthLewis Sun 20-Jan-13 15:24:41

I'll buy that as 7.5 stone loss.

I recently lost just under 3 stone, taking me from a BMI of 25 to 20 ish.

Barely anyone has noticed, and the people who have noticed have scoffed in disbelief when I tell them just how much I have lost - most people have assumed half a stone/10lbs or so.

My clothes are looser, rather than needing replacing and although I'm very happy with the loss, its not as dramatic as it sounds on paper

MrsLouisTheroux Sun 20-Jan-13 15:27:50

Duckworth Exactly what has happened to me! 3 stone gone and not a peep from anyone!!

MrsLouisTheroux Sun 20-Jan-13 15:28:54

Duckworth Yes, and my clothes feel better but still fit! grin

I'm 5ft 10ish Cecily, so reasonably tall, but not a giant grin. How tall is she actually? That could have a pretty big bearing in how much weight she could loose between a size 16 and a 6. Agreed that I REALLY doubt she did it with the plan she's flogging.

GetOrf Sun 20-Jan-13 15:43:53

She seems to have kept the weight off.

Most of these sleb weightlosses are only temporary. Kat Slater lost a load of weight and out it back on, so did Natalie Cassidy. It's almost as if it is designed for front pages of Closer to say 'X now embraces her curves' under the guise of being 'supportive' where the real intent is to publish pictures so people can sneer at how someone has let themselves go and got fat again.

Fuck being famous.

Megsdaughter Sun 20-Jan-13 15:45:00

Im 5ft2 and was 15st8 and yep I looked like her.

Ive now lost a stone of it since Christmas with myfitnesspal and think losing the first few stone is fairly eay and can see that she has lost that much.

Mintyy Sun 20-Jan-13 15:46:31

This time last year the papers (sorry the DM) said she had dropped from 10 stone 5 (size 16) to 7 stone 7, then gained 7lb and settled at 8 stone.

So, no, there is no way on this earth that she can magic an extra 4 stone 7 into that story! Someone should sue her for deliberately misleading or summat.

LadyIsabellaWrotham Sun 20-Jan-13 15:47:46

There are some crap and soul destroying ways to earn a living in this world, but "I'm Fat! Woe Is Me!" "I'm Thin Hurrah!" "How did I do it?" "Buy My Exercise DVD/Diet" "I'm Fat Again Woe Is Me!" "Actually I Was Really Unhealthy When I was Too Thin" "My Bulimia Hell" "I'm Really Spot On And Healthy Now - Look At My Curves" "Oh OK I Admit I I Had Surgery"...rinse, repeat, is up there with bestial porn fluffing.

Mintyy Sun 20-Jan-13 15:48:12

Hello Getorf. Am back btw (blush).

GetOrf Sun 20-Jan-13 15:51:27

I am glad you're back. [Grin] No need for the blush - this place is a madhouse sometimes and some time away is needed!

CecilyP Sun 20-Jan-13 15:51:59

You're right LadyIsabella - and as for Patsy (I have lost a stone and got my confidence back) Kensitt - you have lost a stone and now you are really slim which means that you were pretty slim when you were a stone heavier, so your lack of confidence, even if it existed, could not have been because you were overweight.

Mintyy Sun 20-Jan-13 15:53:54

Awww ... I could have namechanged ... but couldn't be arsed!

catladycourtney1 Sun 20-Jan-13 15:57:46

I agreed at first glance, but thinking about it, people never believe I weigh what I do. Even my midwife was shocked when she weighed me at my booking appointment! I was hovering about 15st7lbs at 5'3", yet I'm a size 16, sometimes I can get in a 14. I do have massive boobs and I'm quite well proportioned, so that might explain why I look smaller than I am, but I'm not especially muscular or big-boned or anything, so I don't really understand it myself. Last year I managed to lose about five and a half stone (and then put it straight back on), and I was a flabby size 12, so I probably would have to lose the same amount of weight as Ms. Nasir to achieve the same kind of transformation. Who knows.

However, I read about her weight loss a long time ago and I'm sure it only said she'd lost about 3 stone. Maybe it is a case of each magazine and newspaper trying to have a more sensational headline than the last and adding a bit on each time.

ErikNorseman Sun 20-Jan-13 16:04:09

Ladyisabella grin

I thought patsy K lost 3 stone? See, all bollocks

TinyDancingHoofer Sun 20-Jan-13 16:22:01

She is only 5ft tall. No way has she lost 7.5stone.
I'm 5ft. 6lbs=one dress size for me.

Osmiornica Sun 20-Jan-13 16:41:36

"I'm 5ft. 6lbs=one dress size for me."

But it depends on how big you are to start with. 6lbs when you're already say 15 stone isn't going to be one dress size. When I was 14stone I had to lose 1.5 stones to drop a dress size.

I'm just about 16stone at 5 ft tall and no one believes my weight. My friends think I look about 12, dh thinks I'm lighter than him grin

I'm very hourglass and in proportion though - 36J, only 28 waist, 42 hips.

BelleEtLaBete Sun 20-Jan-13 17:16:05

Patsy Kensit looked better bigger. She looks about 85 now and haggard.

StuntGirl Sun 20-Jan-13 17:40:47

I'm the same height as you tiny, I've lost a stone and a half and haven't gone down a dress size yet.

FergusSingsTheBlues Sun 20-Jan-13 17:42:13

I lost sven stone, went from size 22 to size eight. And not even a sniff if loose skin, amazingly. So it is possible.

ErikNorseman Sun 20-Jan-13 17:54:05

Laurie how the hell do you weigh 16 stone with those proportions? Are you a body builder? Or do you have metal feet? My measurements are bigger than that (apart from the boobs) and I'm 4in taller and I weigh 12!

Fakebook Sun 20-Jan-13 17:58:41

Who is she? Why should I care?

6 pints of water she drinks.
shock her teeth must be floating in her head.

I struggle to drink 2 litres!

Jayne266 Sun 20-Jan-13 19:34:40

On the sun website it says she lost 3st which sounds like it

Mintyy Sun 20-Jan-13 20:55:44

Also boggling at Laurie's statistics.

I am 5'2", measure 38C, 30 blush blush blush, 42.

Wear size 16.

Weigh about 11 and a half.

Won't be in a size 14 until I've lost a stone.

I know, I'm clearly very compact. Though obese obviously.

RandallPinkFloyd Sun 20-Jan-13 22:02:18

Bloody hell Fergus, that's bloody amazing!

FergusSingsTheBlues Mon 21-Jan-13 08:08:36

randall thanks, i highly recommend the heartbreak diet. You can achieve wonders living on coffee fags and hoodia for a year!

ceeveebee Mon 21-Jan-13 08:34:49

Laurie I am 36, 28, 38 at 5ft1 and weigh 8st 12!! How can you be nearly double my weight?? Surely boobs can't weigh that much?

ceeveebee Mon 21-Jan-13 08:36:27

Anyway came in here to suggest perhaps the 7.5 stone was comparing to her peak weight before having the baby ie including the baby, fluid and everything? The "before" photos are after she had the baby I guess?

weegiemum Mon 21-Jan-13 08:44:40

I lost just over 7 stone over the last 18 months, dropped from a 28 to 20 and can now sometimes get into an 18 at a push!

But I'm 5'9 and very large framed (size 10 feet, for example!)

It is possible, it's getting harder to lose as well and after years of overweightness, 3 big babies and being menopausal the skin has definitely not shrunk to fit!!

RandallPinkFloyd Mon 21-Jan-13 08:59:49

Damn it, I definitely did it wrong. My heartbreak diet seems to have consisted mainly of lard!

grin at ceeveebee - each boob weighs 8 pounds! Over a stone in just boobage.
