Danielle Armstrong is convinced she’s now the healthiest she’s ever been after shedding an incredible three stone following the birth of her daughter.
The former Towie star and her fiance Tom Edney welcomed their first child, Orla, in May last year, and Danielle has been keen to lose the weight she put on during her pregnancy.
The 33-year-old gained four stone while carrying Orla, and she’s been hard at work overhauling her diet and fitness in an effort to get back to her pre-baby figure.
Danielle shared a picture which was taken shortly after Orla was born, alongside a recent selfie she took in the gym, showcasing her toned figure and washboard abs.
Wearing dark grey leggings and a matching crop top, she proudly displayed her body transformation with her Instagram followers.
However, Danielle insisted she had body confidence in both snaps, and simply wanted to lose weight to get her health back on track.
“It’s incredible what the body can achieve in one year. I love both pictures,” she began.
“The picture on the left was a week after having my baby girl, I had gained four stone in pregnancy and I was so proud of what my body went through to bring my little Orla into this world.
“The picture on the right I took at the gym last week. I’ve cut 42Ibs of body fat and I feel the healthiest I’ve ever been. I feel proud of what I’ve achieved and it’s been so easy,” Danielle added.
The star said her health and fitness journey was kickstarted last summer, when she took part in a 21-day challenge.
“Following a simple nutrition plan. I achieved results just sticking to the plan and with no exercise, however now gyms are back open I’ve loved getting back working out to tone my legs and booty,” she remarked.
Danielle’s efforts have paid off, as she recently excitedly shared the news that she had found her dream wedding dress, ahead of her and Tom’s wedding next year.
The reality star went shopping with her mother and close friends, and celebrated with pink champagne after finding the perfect gown for her big day.
“Today I said YES to the dress. We haven’t even sent out my save the dates yet. So any friends or family seeing this pic don’t worry your invites will be on the way to you but I’ve waited 33 years for this moment,” Danielle sweetly shared.
“I found my dream dress. I can’t wait to marry you @tommyedney.”
