TV star Christine McGuinness says she feels “happy, healthy and strong” after gaining a stone in weight.
The ‘Real Housewives of Cheshire’ star – who is married to comedian Paddy McGuinness – has shared before and after video clips of her weight-loss over the last 12 months, revealing she feels much better from having added a few extra pounds.
Christine, 30, captioned her Instagram post:
“This is February (left) vs December (right)
I’ve gained over 1 stone and feel much better for it!
I started 2018 feeling very weak, broken and worthless.. I’m leaving 2018 feeling happy, healthy and strong.
Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom to get back up and realise how strong you are.
Everyone has good and bad times in life, focus on the good. Remember things do change so never make a permanent decision on temporary feelings.
Create your own happiness. Build yourself and your future. .
“Be strong when you are weak, brave when you are scared and humble when you are victorious”
Believe in yourself always. (sic)”
The first video clip is thought to have been filmed around the time Christine – who has five-year-old twins Leo and Penelope, as well as two-year-old daughter Felicity – admitted her marriage was under strain.
After Paddy was seen looking cosy with former All Saints star Nicole Appleton in London, she confessed:
“I’ve got no regrets. It’s been really difficult recently but in a positive way, it has made me realise I want to spend more time with him, to try and do more things together.”
