A mother-of-two stunned family and friends at her daughter’s wedding after losing 55 kilos in the space of a year.
Simone Daglis tipped the scales at 126kg before starting her weight loss journey with husband George, 57, after he suffered a health scare in 2017.
On the day of her daughter’s wedding in September 2018, the 53-year-old from The Ponds in northwest Sydney said she was ‘unrecognisable’ to almost every relative – including her own mother – which is something she’ll never forget.
‘The priest escorted me to the front next to my mother, and when I sat down the first thing that came out of her mouth was “I didn’t even know it was you”,’ Ms Daglis told Daily Mail Australia.
During her 12-month transformation, Ms Daglis dropped from a size 24 to 26 to a trim size eight to ten by swapping gargantuan servings for portion-controlled meals and walking seven kilometres a day.

‘Losing weight isn’t easy, it’s something you need to be 100 percent committed to to see results – but there’s always a pot of gold at the end,’ she said.
The Daglis’ were determined to lose weight after a doctor issued a warning about George’s health.
‘The doctor strongly advised that he started losing weight because he weighed 92kg,’ she said.
‘While it wasn’t my check-up, I knew I would be worse off because I was heavier.’

Ms Daglis then Googled ‘weight loss programs’ before settling on one of the top results: Lite n’ Easy.
‘After doing some research, and the fact that my daughter’s wedding was the following year, I knew it would help me lose the weight and look good,’ she said.
‘I was already thinking of losing weight, but this was the final push to start.’
She started the meal plan the following week.
