A former contestant on Strictly Come Dancing in 2012, Lisa, 40, has since lost 10 stone after kickstarting a new diet at a slimming retreat in August 2015.
In the throwback photograph, a morbidly obese Lisa poses leaning on a car, while the after photograph shows her much slimmer figure as she stands next to a rail of clothes.
Fans praised Lisa for her dedication to losing weight.
@Reallisariley I think you should be proud, but you have always looked beautiful then and now. Xx

@Reallisariley You look amazing. It's what is inside what counts. You made change for your benefit, not to please other people x

Lisa is a panellist on ITV daytime chat show Loose Women and has spoken previously about how strange it feels to be such a different size.
She said on the show in April 2016: “It’s still hard for me to see my reflection… bits of me are just missing.
“It’s insane because now it’s just so different. I was happy before, don’t get me wrong, but I needed to do it.”
