James Argent has revealed that doctors are now advising him to put weight back on after he shed 13 stone for his health.
The former Towie star, 34, underwent life-saving gastric band surgery last April after reaching nearly 27 stone during lockdown.
However, despite his pride in his appearance, he has now told The Sun: ‘This is the first time in my life that I like the way I look too – I don’t feel ugly anymore – I’m content and happy with my appearance.
‘The only problem now is I’ve lost a little bit too much weight and I need to put on half a stone.’
‘Everyone thinks it’s hilarious, we didn’t think we’d ever be in this situation but it’s one thing or another with me – that’s just me!’
Since losing the weight, James has proudly shown off his new look on social media, and this weekend he continued to show off the results of his hard work, sharing a picture outside Roslin Beach Hotel in Southend-on-Sea.
The reality star was all smiles as he posed on a balcony in a black T-shirt, wearing matching jeans and a casual hoodie tied around his waist.
He completed the look with some relaxed trainers, and a silver watch on his wrist.
James added the simple caption ‘It’s a beautiful day’ to the post.
In 2020, James hit 26 stone 13lb after he binged on junk food during the pandemic.
After doctors warned him to ‘lose weight or die’ he had a £10,000 gastric sleeve operation.
In February, the former reality star revealed that he’d had a relapse and had started to drink alcohol again.
He had been sober for two years but recently suffered the relapse after drinking alcohol on a night out which led to paramedics being called to his home.
Following the incident, James appeared on Loose Women, where he revealed that loneliness and changing his relationship with food had caused the setback.
The star said that he’s naturally an ‘extrovert’ and admitted that spending long periods of time all alone can be tough, despite the fact he’s purchased his ‘dream home’ in Essex.
He said: ‘I managed to do it but it’s a family home, and I’m in there in this beautiful house all alone. No girlfriend, no one to live with me.’
He added: ‘I need to be around people all the time. I love company, I love entertaining and I love being entertained.
‘A lot of people’s chaos can be from being out all the time… my chaos starts when I’m indoors, alone, bored, lonely. Too much time on my hands.’
