Hannah Bean was horrified after discovering her Tinder date had seen her and done a runner as she was sat waiting in a café.
They had been in touch for three months, speaking regularly via video chat, telephone calls and text messages before they decided to meet.
But the 23-year-old, from Australia, received a shocking text which read “I walked in and you look nothing like your photos. Do yourself a favour, eat a salad and lose some weight”.
Feeling crushed, Hannah had stayed off the dating app for a long time and instead began focusing on her own journey of self-love and weight loss.
“The Tinder date knew exactly what I looked like”
Hannah, who weighed 26st 10lbs and wore a UK size 26, has now lost a whopping 13st 3lbs and six dress sizes.
Since her journey, the Aussie weighs 13st 7lbs and wears a UK size 12-14.
She said: “Although I was self-conscious of my weight, he [the Tinder date] knew exactly what I looked like, so I felt okay meeting up with him for the first time.
“He picked a place and I was sitting there waiting for him. I was excited. But then I got a text saying that he walked in and saw me already.
“He told me I looked nothing like my pictures and that I needed to eat a salad and lose some weight. I never heard from him again. It was horrible and I stayed off Tinder for a long time after that.”
Before her weight loss journey, Hannah was addicted to soft drinks and guzzled up to six litres of lemonade a day.
She added: “Up until now, I don’t think I’ve ever been a healthy weight in my entire life.
“I was always overweight as a child and so much bigger than all the other kids my age.
“I got bullied a lot for my weight a lot, especially in high school. It was so hard.”
Hannah began going to the gym and doing cheerleading, which helped her to lose weight.
Then after losing an amazing 8st 9lbs, Hannah opted for gastric band surgery in October 2018, which helped her lose another 4st 7lbs.
She said: “Life had totally changed for me. I wake up everyday feeling amazing.
“Its quite a surreal experience when I finally went back on Tinder and started getting all these matches.
“I’m really not used to the compliments about my appearance, but it makes me feel great.
“Now I’m more motivated than ever to achieve my dreams. I’m excited for the future.”
