It’s no secret Chrissie Swan has experienced weight loss in the last 12 months. However, the radio personality isn’t going to be the kind to promote any kind of ‘diet’ or ‘tricks’ following her transformation.
“I’m not going to talk about the size of my a*se. I’m not going to tell you what I eat in a day. Because I’ve read those stories and they make me feel bad about myself,” she said in an interview with The Australian Women’s Weekly.
What she will share is how the Melbourne lockdown inspired her lifestyle change. The 48-year-old no longer drinks alcohol and walks for two hours a day.
“We couldn’t go out to dinner, we couldn’t go to a friend’s house, they couldn’t come to us, we couldn’t go outside five kilometres. All we could do was walk, and so that’s what I did,” she told the publication.
Previously, Chrissie had also opened up on The Project about quitting alcohol during the lockdown.
“I really am reticent to be the poster girl for sobriety because it was a decision I made for myself after giving it a fair nudge in the first lockdown last year,” she said while on air.
“If you’re thinking, ‘Oh, maybe I’m drinking a bit much or it’s not helping me anymore’, I think that’s the biggest thing I’ve taken from it, is that it didn’t help.”
Around the same time in 2021, it was reported that Chrissie and her partner Chris had ended their relationship. The pair continue to co-parent and Chrissie addressed the rumours in the same interview with The Australian Women’s Weekly.
“It’s not my story to tell … but we are very good friends. We like each other very much. We still live together. So it’s not really that different,” she said.
Through all the changes, Chrissie appears as positive and healthy as ever and we couldn’t be happier for her.
