GRANDMA IS CHATTED UP BY TOYBOYS AFTER LOSING 12 STONE

A grandma who lost almost 12 stone after undergoing a gastric bypass has revealed that she now gets chatted up by men half her age. Paula Howson, 43, from Bolton upon Dearne, Barnsley, once weighed in at 22st 7lbs and was a size 26. Men shouted ‘You fat cow!’ at her from their cars, or whispered ‘Look at that fatty’ to their friends on nights out. But after losing 11st 10lbs and dropping seven dress sizes following an NHS-funded gastric bypass in 2010, the dinner lady is inundated with compliments from much younger men.
