KATIE WILLIAMS: Before I lost my weight, my
relationship was good. COMM: After shedding almost half her body
weight, Katie Williams’ confidence increased, but it cost her her marriage. However,
she’s bounced back by finding a toy boy who’s 12 years younger. KATIE WILLIAMS: These are the trousers I used
to wear, they are size 24, I’m now size 10 to 12. I’ve lost 10.7 stone
and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. COMM: Katie had met her husband in high school,
and they went on to have two children. The only thing she was unhappy about
was her weight. KATIE WILLIAMS: My largest weight was 21 stone.
Now I am about 11 stone. My largest size was about size 24 and now I am
size 10/12. “Big white whale” I used to call myself. Didn’t go out too much with
my girls, didn’t let it show but for me, I wasn’t happy at all. I used to cry, very
sad at times. Yeah, I just knew I had to sort it out. COMM: She vowed she would only get married
when she’d lost weight, so in preparation for her wedding in 2013, she had
a gastric bypass followed by a tummy tuck and breast lift. KATIE WILLIAMS: Basically they’ve made my
stomach into the size of an egg. My KATIE WILLIAMS: Basically they’ve made my
stomach into the size of an egg. My food technically goes in and then goes around
and comes out quicker. So our body has less absorption. COMM: Having almost halved her weight, her
new slimlined figure gave her the confidence to go out as she hadn’t done
when she was younger. ADELE KINNEAR (Katie’s friend): If you look
at Katie’s before and after pictures, ADELE KINNEAR (Katie’s friend): If you look
at Katie’s before and after pictures, it’s not the same girl. There is a lot of
difference. It is really good. She has always been a bubbly girl. But her confidence now
is through the roof. But she is always been outgoing and bubbly but a lot more since
she’s lost weight. KATIE WILLIAMS: To me, he got more jealous
over the years. He didn’t want me to have the surgery. He was very supportive
obviously when I did lose the weight, and hence why we actually got married. But
then I started going out with my friends and then the trust started breaking
down. COMM: When the couple broke up last year,
Katie soon and met 23 year old Jack, 12 years her junior. JACK KANE (Katie’s Boyfriend): Drop dead
gorgeous. She was drop dead gorgeous. When I first saw her, my jaw hit
the floor. The age between me and Katie don’t bother me at all. Age is a number.
And if I can make her happy and if she can make me happy, what’s the problem?
No one makes anything about the age. That’s fit. KATIE WILLIAMS: Sexiness is a new feeling
‘cause right now I’ll go and buy outfits, and I feel a lot more sexy and, like
even in the bedroom, like sexy underwear, etc. KATIE WILLIAMS: I love all my clothes now.
I love quite sexy outfits, they make me feel really good about myself. They are
quite figurehugging. JACK KANE (Katie’s Boyfriend): Jack: It
looks good on you. KATIE WILLIAMS: Thank you Jack. They look
good on me apparently. COMM: While Katie is enjoying her new figure,
Jack is able to handle the attention she gets. JACK KANE (Katie’s Boyfriend): Everyone
stares at Katie, ‘cause she is good looking. I like it. ‘Cause she is on
my arm and no one else’s. They even try to go up to her. But that’s a big mistake.
I’d knock him out. COMM: Katie still wants more surgery to remove
excess skin from her legs. KATIE WILLIAMS: In my eyes I feel like a half-done
Frankenstein. Because it’s like from here upwards I am sort of surgically
tight and everything to me looks good. Jack doesn’t want me to have no more
surgery. He’s happy with who I am and he has made me feel million times better.
