She admitted she had ‘shocked’ herself with her progress as she shared before and after comparison photos documenting the dramatic change.

The reality TV personality also included the original live version of the aftershot to prove she hadn’t edited or altered the image.

She admitted she is ‘feeling proud of herself’ because she is in a much ‘better place physically, and mentally’ after focusing on her health for the last seven months.

Shaughna wrote: ‘So this has been happening… I’ll be honest even I’m shocked. 

‘So glad I’ve been taking pictures because honestly, when I look in the mirror, I don’t see any difference, your mind is your biggest enemy sometimes!

‘And although being accused of editing your pictures when you actually haven’t is the biggest compliment EVER.

‘I haven’t edited the pic on the right, so I thought I’d include the actual Live Photo just for any doubters.

‘I’ve been trying for a while to get into a better place with my health, mental and physical, so I must admit I am feeling bloody proud of myself today.

‘I’ve spoken openly about struggling with my body image since I was a little girl (breaks my heart to even say that), so to be told I was seriously overweight at a doctors appointment wasn’t great.

‘This hasn’t been overnight, and I still have a way to go. The truth is, there has been weeks where I have found it so easy, and then there’s been months when I’ve seen no change, so I’m really trying to find what works for me, and I think I’m nearly there.

‘Today definitely feels like a win. Although I only have one pair of jeans that fit me now so my bank card is taking it as a loss’.

Shaughna revealed in the comments it took her seven months to lose the weight, so she has done it sensibly and slowly as she replied to fans who were amazed by her transformation.

She wrote: ‘It’s taken me 7 months so far, still got a bit to lose so I’ll estimate probably a year until I’ve lost what I want to x’

Shaughna revealed earlier this month that she was left ‘shaken to her core’ after visiting her GP for a health check.

The TV star revealed that a year after giving birth to her daughter Lucia she had been told she is now obese.

In a candid post shared to Instagram, Shaughna revealed during an entire body MOT check, she was told she had ‘quite a lot of visceral fat around her main organs’.

This can lead to an array of potentially serious health problems in the future, such as heart attacks, diabetes and some cancers, according to Health Direct. 

Speaking to her 1.4million followers, she said: ‘It’s been a year since I had a baby, so I wanted to see where I stood post-birth.

‘They told me that I was obese, which isn’t a shock, but it’s never nice to hear. Following some of the check-ups, they said I had quite a lot of visceral fat around my organs. 

‘Now, I’m no Gillian McKeith, I’m not going to tell you what that means because I don’t really know. 

‘It’s basically fat around your main organs, which is serious because it can cause heart attacks.’

‘I’m a mum now and it shook me to my core, because I know I’m not the picture of health, but I didn’t realise things were that bad and it’s kind of scary to hear it from a medical professional.’ 

Vowing to improve her health as she is determined to be around for her daughter as she grows up, Shaughna said: ‘I’m going to do this. I need to do something. I need to lose so much weight. I only had one parent because my dad died. 

‘Without getting way too deep, I just never want that to happen to Lucia and I want to do everything in my power to be here for as long as possible.’

Opening up on her the body dysmorphia she has struggled with her whole life, Shaughna added: ‘I’m not going to be too hard on myself as I’m only human. I’m raising a human on my own, that’s hard. I’m self -employed, that’s hard. 

‘I’ve struggled with my body image for probably most of my life, which is quite scary – and I don’t want that for Lucia.

‘I need to be a positive example for her. I don’t want her to see me struggling to put clothes on or not being happy with how I look. I need to be the happiest, healthiest version of myself. 

‘Do I know how I’m going to get there? No. But I feel like I have the knowledge now to go forward. I’m a work in progress, but loving myself regardless.’

Shaughna opened up about her crippling battle with body dysmorphia in a candid interview.

The influencer has reflected on her time on the show back in 2020, saying she was ‘consumed with the way she looked’. 

Shaughna revealed she was ‘terrified of leaving the house’ following birth because she had gained six stone.

She told Closer magazine of her experience on Love Island: ‘I was a size 6-8, yet I thought I was the ‘fat girl’ in the villa. 

‘It shows the level of body dysmorphia I had. I was consumed with the way I looked, breathing in and getting the right angles.

‘When they gave me the outfit to wear for the Dirty Dancing challenge, I thought, “God must really hate me!” I felt some girls knew I was insecure and would strut past me. 

‘I’d think, “How do they have this confidence?” I look back and feel sorry for myself.’ 

The reality star previously confirmed that she would be raising her firstborn as a single parent, after her ex-boyfriend Billy’s drug arrest

Billy, 30, was sentenced to nine years in jail for conspiracy to supply 4.5kg of cocaine worth at least £360,000, after being arrested in a drug raid.
