Vicky Pattison admits her weight gain is “starting to affect [her] quality of life” as she feels “tired” and “bloated”.
The 31-year-old reality TV star has opened up about how parts of her lifestyle have “caught up” with her, and she’s hit a point where she doesn’t feel “comfortable” wearing a bikini.
Taking to Instagram, she wrote:
“I have not stopped travelling, laughing, loving & working (if you can call what I do for a living that- I’m hardly down the mines.)
I’ve eaten everything I wanted & drank cocktails like there were going out of fashion & I’ve LOVED every minute of it but it has definitely caught up with me.
I’ve gained weight. I won’t wear a bikini- I’m a 1 piece kinda girl right now- I’m tired a lot, bloated, I’m avoiding going to places, I’m missing out on things I love because I’m not comfortable (sic)”
The former ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ winner – who became Queen of the Jungle in 2015 – insisted she has never been focused on her size or weight, but she admitted it’s now “starting to affect [her] quality of life”.
“I won’t apologise for letting my hair down this year- I think after last year it was understandable- but I want to make some changes and I’m going to start now.
I’ve neglected my training & my healthy eating has been sporadic at best but I’m keen to add more balance to my life now I have a little more time on my hands- I want to like what I see in the mirror & not live my life in fear of someone taking a picture of me.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not giving up gin, hummus or haribos anytime soon as they’re wizard & I love them but I am planning on taking control, striking a balance and toning up these curves! Wish me luck lasses! (sic)”
