Tina Tells OK! She Finally Feels Beautiful for the First Time in 25 Years Thanks to Gastric Band Surgery

BIRMINGHAM, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2010) - A newly svelte Tina Malone has appeared in OK! Magazine talking about her dramatic weight loss thanks to the help of a gastric band.

The actress of Channel 4's series Shameless was pictured in the magazine in her beautiful size 14 wedding dress after losing around seven stone with a gastric band fitted by The Hospital Group.

Now in great health, the bubbly blonde talked openly about her plans to start a family with toy boy husband Paul Chase and how her weight loss made her feel on her wedding day.

Tina, 47 said: "It was funny because everyone gasped when I walked in the room. A lot of my friends and family hadn't seen my weight loss so they were quite shocked."

Dropping from a size 26 to 14 Tina admitted that on her wedding day she finally felt beautiful for the first time in over 25years: "How happy do I feel on a scale of one to 10? I'd say about ten million!"

Having had a beautiful wedding and lost around seven stone Tina is now able to start a family with Paul and certainly seems eager to: "Time is running on for me, so we don't really want to wait...We would love to celebrate our lives together with children. Paul will make a fantastic Dad."

And it seems Tina shows no signs of slowing down as she hopes to lose a further three stone so that she can achieve the size 10 figure she has always dreamed of.
