A bride who was turned away from a boutique dress shop for being 'too fat' has lost more than 50 kilos in a show of pure determination, exercising six times a week and radically altering her diet in the process.
DJ Jarman, 30, from Hamilton, New Zealand, weighed 120 kilos when she walked into a bridal store in Sydney in 2012 and asked to view the brand's range of dresses for her upcoming nuptials.

Royal wedding lookback: Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank
Princess Eugenie has celebrated her second wedding anniversary to husband Jack Brooksbank. The youngest daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York married at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle on October 12, 2018. It was attended by the who's who of British royalty and members of the A-list elite including Naomi Campbell, Liv Tyler, Kate Moss, Ricky Martin, Demi Moore and Stephen Fry. Perhaps one of the most memorable moments of the day was when Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, arrived and immediately sparked pregnancy rumours.She and Prince Harry would confirm they were expecting just hours later, on the eve of their royal tour of Australia.
'After ten years of being overweight I'd had enough.'
But it still took a number of years for Mrs Jarman to decide on the best course to lose weight safely.
She tried intermittent fasting, keto and plant-based diets to shift the extra kilos but with no success, so in 2019 she underwent vertical gastric sleeve surgery.
'I went under the knife in April 2019 and my life hasn't been the same since,' the now size eight Mrs Jarman said.
Growing up in a family that 'loved food' but had little money to spend on good quality ingredients originally propelled Mrs Jarman into a decade-long binge on chips, fizzy drinks, lollies and chocolate.
Introducing Moon Mart, Eun Hee An’s small-batch range of kimchi and condiments
“It’s not like you have to be Asian to make Asian stuff,” says chef Eun Hee An. “What matters is before you decide to make things for people you need to put time, effort and ambition in.”The 20-year-old Eun Hee An would never have entertained running a mini kimchi factory. When she moved from Korea to Sydney twelve years ago, the chef had one goal and one goal only: to be a master of French cuisine.
'Once I left home and started making my own money, I developed an unhealthy relationship with food, fast foods, easy foods,' she said of that time.
She would normally skip breakfast and then indulge in a huge lunch of pies and chips, chicken rolls and snacks including chips and chocolate.
For dinner Mrs Jarman would usually have a takeaway, with an extra-large McDonald's meal being her favourite. Her exercise routine was non-existent.

Mum comes out of two lockdowns and loses 40cm from her stomach
Mother-of-two Bridget Flint-Chapman, from Victoria, has revealed how she came out of two COVID-19 lockdowns having lost 40 centimetres of weight from her stomach.When Bridget-Flint Chapman, 39, from Myrtleford, northeast Victoria, went into lockdown for the first time in March she decided to do something about her weight.
'I get told everyday how amazing I look; it still makes me blush. I'm not very good at taking compliments.'
Since her dramatic weight loss Mrs Jarman will start the day with porridge oats, blueberries and sugar-free maple syrup, followed by a wholemeal wrap with egg, salami and salad for lunch and chicken or steak with salad for dinner.
She does one hour of high intensity cardio and weight training six days a week.
'Most people are gobsmacked by my weight loss, especially the ones who haven't seen me since before my operation,' she said.
'The best compliment for me, is when people compliment my hard work instead of my looks.
'I love when people tell me I inspire them, or my workouts help them go harder in the gym.'
Her advice to those wanting to transform their own lives is to start small
'Cut out takeaways and fizzy drinks first, drink more water and eat at least one piece of fruit per day,' she said.
'Also, don't be afraid of what people will say or think if you get surgical help. If you have tried everything and nothing has been successful, look into it.
'Your life is only lived once, don't waste it being unhappy and unhealthy. Do whatever it takes to make this life the best life ever.'
