A SUPER-slimming mum has gone from fatty to fitty after she lost a whopping 11 STONE in just 16 months - because she wanted to like her idol Angelina Jolie.
Christina Staggs, 26, tipped the scales at 22st after gorging on sweets, chocolate bars and ice cream following the birth of her second son.
But she decided to go on a diet after a stranger told her she bore an uncanny resemblance to Hollywood beauty Angelina.
Christina joined Slimming World in April 2010 and by August this year she had shed a staggering 11st and went from a lardy size 24 to a trim size eight.
Christina, who has three sons - Dimitris, eight, Andreas, six and two-year-old Theo - now weighs 10st 9lbs and is regularly stopped in the street by people who mistake her for Brad Pitt’s stunning wife.
She said: “I must admit I never really saw the resemblance myself when I was bigger but one day I was chatting to a woman who said I looked like Angelina Jolie.
“She said we had the same lips which was quite a compliment because Angelina is famous for her big sexy pout.
I thought I looked more Angelina Jelly than Jolie but the comment stuck with me and I had always tried, and failed, to lose weight but I suddenly thought I had a goal to aim for.
“I’ve always had a really sweet tooth and love sugary snacks.
“I’d go to the supermarket and I’d get a couple of packs of brownies, a family size dairy milk bar, a family bar of white chocolate and I’d get some desserts.
“I’d eat all that in one day. I’d eat loads.
Christina, of Gosberton, Lincs, told how she struggled to find clothes that fit her.
She said: “Every time I went shopping I couldn’t buy anything that fit and sometimes I had to order bigger sizes.
“When I bought a size 23 I thought I didn’t want to do that anymore.
“And I used to get chest pains so I thought something had to be done.
