So instead of being a “fat bride”, she rejected the proposal until she got in shape.
Claire started going to a fitness class, which helped her lose over 25 kg in 10 months. Then she decided she wanted to look even better and started hitting the gym with her boyfriend. He was very supportive and she lost another 10-12 kg.
He also followed a strict diet and improved his own shape a lot.
In October, 2014, they finally got married and as you can see in the photos below, they both looked great. Claire and Stephen’s should be an inspiration to many and we would not be surprised if more couples start doing this before they get married! Congratulations to both of them and hats off to Claire for her amazing transformation!
