LOVE Island’s Shaughna Phillips has revealed she’s put on two stone after overindulging in lockdown.
The reality star is embarking on a major health kick after admitting she piled on the pounds over the last 12 months.
“In lockdown I definitely indulged a lot more than I used to when it came to food,” said Shaughna.
“I did end up gaining quite a bit of weight. I gained two stone.”
In a paid post on Instagram, Shaughna asked fans to join her on her journey using the @jonpleapp.
She said: “It’s all about having the right frame of mind when it comes to what you’re eating and what you’re putting in your body.”
The 27-year-old has already started her fitness kick – but admits “it’s not been an overnight success”.
She wrote on Instagram: “Some of you may have already noticed, but for those who haven’t I have recently been trying to get back into the swing of things (life basically!), and that includes working out and eating better, as well as trying to adapt my working life around my new healthy lifestyle!
“It is safe to say that this has NOT been an overnight success. But it’s a marathon, not a sprint!
“It finally feels like I’m starting to get a hang of things, and I’m excited again about life as we used to know it returning!”
Last year Shaughna had an operation to remove two litres of fat from her thighs.
She was treating a condition called lipoedema – an abnormal build up of fat in the legs and bum.
Shaughna explained that before going into the villa she was self-conscious about her legs – despite losing four stone.
She told fans last year: “I have had liposuction on my lower legs, so my calves, because I was recently diagnosed with lipoedema, once I’d come out of the [love Island] villa.
“I’ve kind of always had an insecurity about my legs, but there were so many questions about if I’d ever been diagnosed with lipoedema, and I didn’t even know what it was.”
She added: “So after some research and going to the doctors, I was finally diagnosed and then had my surgery on Wednesday.”
