A CRISP addict who consumed 24 packs a day lost the 7th after a gastric bypass.
Single mom of two Melissa Jones, 38, was 19 9 pounds before surgery but is now a size 42.
The caretaker, van Herefordsaid, “My comfort food was potato chips.
“I was going to get those 24 multipacks and clean things up.
‘I would continue holidays with my two boys and I wouldn’t fit in the paddle boats.
“It was embarrassing for me and for them.
“After the gastric sleeve I felt great, but emotionally I was in a terrible place.
“I had had a few broken relationships and my fibromyalgia had gotten worse.
“I was consoling and my mobility was terrible.
“But after I got a gastric band, I felt great.
“The weight just fell off me and I started to feel human again.
“I feel great and more importantly I can be the best version of myself for my two boys.
“Now all I have to do is remove this excess skin and I can really start my life over.”
She is now using a £12,000 future inheritance to get a body lift.
