The mum ditched her calorific binges and now eats a healthier diet full of lean protein and nutritious carbs – while also working out at the gym five days a week.
And after losing 40kg, Meg said she feels happier and more confident than ever flaunting her brand-new 80kg, size 12 figure.
‘I was never overweight as a child or teenager and was always really active.
But after I moved out of home, I had this new-found freedom that I’d never had before,’ Customer service assistant Meg said.
‘I gained lots of weight really quickly. My friends and I would have movie nights and eat entire cakes and whole packets of biscuits.
‘I was also in a long-term relationship, so I didn’t really care about how I looked as much as I should have.
‘I’d easily eat four family-sized packets of chocolate daily. I was totally addicted.
‘I’d bake whole batches of chocolate muffins or brownies and eat the entire tray all by myself.
‘My breakfast would be eight slices of white toast saturated with chocolate spread, because I needed that chocolate hit as soon as I woke up.
‘I needed chocolate every single day. It was an incessant craving.’

The mum said she tried for years to lose weight on different 'fad diets' but nothing ever stuck - and she would always revert back to her old habits.
Meg said a huge motivation for her to lead a healthier lifestyle was because she wanted to ‘set a good example’ for her children Lucas, six, and Harper, one.
Since losing the weight, Meg said her relationship with her husband Richard, 31, is ‘better than ever before’.
And while the former chocolate addict steers clear of junk food, Meg said she still allows herself two squares of dark chocolate a few times a week.
She said: ‘Losing the weight and changing my life was the best decision I’ve ever made.
‘When I was at my heaviest, I was eating so much terrible food.
‘I would eat all that chocolate and sugar daily, and my son would see me and want to eat it too.

‘Of course, I wouldn’t let him because it wasn’t healthy. But I could see that was confusing to him.
‘If mummy was eating it, I knew he must have thought it was okay. But it really wasn’t
‘I’ve always made sure my kids eat healthy, but at the same time I wasn’t taking care of myself.
‘I knew I had to set a good example for them. Now they love eating their greens and being active like me.
‘It feels amazing. My relationship with my husband is better than it has ever been, purely because of how I feel about myself.
‘I have so much more confidence and I’m just truly happy. It’s wonderful.
‘Now I can shop wherever I like and not have to worry about whether clothes stores are going to have things in my size.
‘It’s so liberating. I’ll never look back.’
