Christian Hill was stuck in a rut playing computer games for hours every day, but once she sapped her console for a pole, she got an incredible new look.

“Now I’m a pole addict and I train for at least two hours a day . I think nothing of standing in front of a mirror for hours in my undies to perfect the latest trick.”

A woman who spent 24 hours at a time playing computer games because she was lonely has changed her life – and her body – by shedding an incredible 11 STONE.

And Christian Hill has proven that fitness takes many forms, as she lost the weight when she took up pole dancing.

The 34-year-old was addicted to gaming and stayed up for days at a time playing long sessions, all fuelled by fizzy drinks and unhealthy food.

But it was getting kicked out of an online gaming centre after a 24-hour session as the staff were concerned she might get a blood clot that showed her the error of her ways.

Before the change, Christian, who goes by Cece, from Orlando, Florida was 26st 8lb and got stuck on two different theme park rides.

In once incident where she was jammed for THREE hours in a tubed water slide.

After initially losing weight with gastric sleeve surgery, the gaming fanatic soon piled it back on.

Happy and healthy, Cece says she’s got her confidence back since she shed 11 stone

But now she’s found a solution that’s worked – and turned to pole dancing in a bid to banish the weight for good.

Her gruelling workout sessions on the pole have conquered her old ways and she’s happier than she’s ever been before.

“I’ve always loved dancing, but my fat hung down and made everything uncomfortable. As a result, I often hid inside playing video games.

“Now I’m a pole addict and I train for at least two hours a day . I think nothing of standing in front of a mirror for hours in my undies to perfect the latest trick.”

It was only after getting stuck on two different rides because of her size that she found the courage to change her binge eating ways for good.

“Once I was at Atlantis waterpark in the Bahamas and I got stuck in an innertube in the middle of a ride and five lifeguards had to come help me out.

“It took several hours and was so humiliating.”

Cece has battled with her weight for years. At school she would hide in the locker room eating Cheetos to escape the bullies.
