An IT specialist ,a computer programmer from Middles borough was miserable in a male body . She said she always felt different when she was a man and is awaiting the final stages of her £10,000 NHS operation, due to take place later in the year. In order to complete the swap ‘I lost 12 STONE .
Reas more after the cut
Speaking to The Sun, Hinoi said: ‘I didn’t act or think like other boys and that realization meant I was miserable. I was binge eating to punish the body I hated so much.’ The IT specialist would stay in her room and gorge on eight fried eggs, eight pieces of toast and packets of crisps in the middle of the night because she was so miserable.
Realisation hit when her elder sister Sharon got married in 2006 and her other sister Pamela was a bridesmaid.
Hinoi said: ‘I was so jealous of how they looked. I felt like an imposter in my suit, knowing I was living a lie.’
After her mother found Hinoi wearing a skirt in 2009, she finally plucked up the courage to visit a gender clinic and underwent a course of drugs to block testosterone.
As she began to change into the ‘new her’, Hinoi ditched her fattening diet and swapped the fried food for diet shakes and salads, which she combined with mile-long daily walks.

Within eighteen months, she became unrecognisable to anyone who had known her before and finally felt comfortable and confident in her body.
She added: ‘I can get into glamorous skirts and dresses and now I have these hips I love to shake them on the dancefloor- it’s where I’m at my happiest.’
