The 53-year-old, from Brisbane, Australia, had piled on the pounds after giving birth to her four children.
And she could barely squeeze into size 22 clothing after years of yo-yo dieting.
Determined to turn her life around, Jackie decided to try Aldi meal replacement shakes and has since dropped an incredible nine stone.
She said: “I never want to be that person again — I’m happier now”.
Jackie first saw the weight piling on after giving birth to her twin daughters.
She told 9Honey: “My first children were twin girls, and I put on 30kg with them in 1993.
“Then I had my son in 1994, then another daughter in 1997.
“Over this time I put my children first at all times, leaving no time for me.”
I didn’t want to get fixed into weight loss programmes and I didn’t want to be noticed as a failure
Jackie soon realised the huge toll her weight was having on her life and knew she “couldn’t ignore it anymore”.
The mum-of-four had heard about a friend who had lost five stone through shakes – and decided to follow in her footsteps.
“I had never tried diet shakes or programme weight loss“, Jackie said.
“I didn’t want to get fixed into weight loss programmes and I didn’t want to be noticed as a failure.”
Jackie first began replacing her breakfast with an Aldi shake and was stunned by just how quickly the weight dropped off.
She then upped it to two shakes a day, using the second one as her dinner.
And Jackie admits she made sure to always put her shaker in her handbag so she didn’t make bad choices when she was out and about.
On top of this, Jackie also started exercising and started eating healthier snacks.
She added: “Getting active was the hardest part. I was the laziest person.
“The exercise from walking around at work was not enough, I had to do something.
“I now exercise daily and have never missed, in all this time, a day of my exercise — I feel lost if I haven’t done it!”

While Jackie says the shakes were a major factor in her weight loss, she says she had to stay motivated and persevere throughout.
She added: “I changed my mental mind. I knew I could do this, and I have.
“The Aldi shakes aided in my weight loss with the exercise, but the determination and willpower had to come from me.”
