Gemma Collins opens up on weight loss battle and why she refuses to lose any more | The Sun
GEMMA Collins has told The Sun she no longer wants to slim down further – despite her doctor warning her to lose weight.
The TOWIE legend, who recently went on a trip to Bethlehem to see the birthplace of Jesus Christ, admits after years of yo-yo dieting she's now finally happy and content with her appearance.
Gemma Collins said: "I have made peace with my weight. This is me. I am never going to be a Victoria Secrets Model.
"I struggle and I am real about it. It gets harder the older you get. I'm in my forties now.
"But at the end of the day I think I am attractive. I think I am gorgeous.
"There is a lot of junk in my trunk but I am always keeping an eye on my health."

Despite being keen to keep an eye on her health, Gemma has drawn a line at hard diets.
She added: "Doctors obviously tell me I need to lose weight but all my other tests are perfectly normal and healthy.
"You do feel better when you drop weight but I'm happy as I am."

Gemma's ex-boyfriend and fella The Only Way Is Essex star James 'Arg' Argent previously went under the knife for gastric sleeve surgery.
But The GC says she would never go down the same route.
She adds: " I wouldn't do surgery to lose weight. I want to do it the natural way.
"I would like to try intermittent fasting because I've heard it's amazing but I keep saying I will start Monday.

During an appearance on Channel 5's In Therapy, Gemma previously admitted she used her weight to keep in the limelight – something she now regrets.
She said: "I can remember it all, them telling me you need to go over to the park in gym wear and them saying 'we want to get some terrible shots of you but then you will get £15,000 for the pictures Gemma'.
"Looking back now I would never ever have gone down the route of the weight gain and weight loss but it was just a fast way to a quick bit of money."
