While you wouldn’t know it by looking at her now, just 18 months ago Cassie Thorpe’s self-confidence had plummeted to an all-time low after she reached her heaviest weight of 135kg.

The 26-year-old from Airlie Beach, Queensland, said she absolutely hated looking at her reflection in the mirror due to her size-26 frame.

The self-confessed sugar addict revealed she would regularly eat a block of chocolate first thing in the morning – followed by sweets, ice-cream and greasy takeaway meals throughout the day.

“I had really terrible eating habits and was totally addicted to sugar,” Cassie reveals to New Idea. “It was like I couldn’t control myself. Sweet things were my weakness.”

“I’d eat chocolate, lollies, cake and ice-cream daily, and would still crave sugar all the time.

“Breakfast would be a block of chocolate or whatever other sweet things I could get my hands on. Then I’d usually have unhealthy takeaway food for lunch and dinner, like greasy Chinese food or a McDonald’s burger meal.

“I was out of control and would be totally disgusted when I’d look at my reflection in the mirror. I couldn’t believe how I’d let myself go and how big I’d become. It affected my entire mood. I hated feeling that way.

“I knew something had to change or I’d always be unhappy with myself.”
