The Masked Singer’s Chrissie Swan has reached another milestone in her health journey, sharing with followers that she’s been sober for almost two years. The star has been open about her reported 90kg weight loss and credits it to her ‘enormous’ lifestyle changes.
Chrissie has previously spoken about how Melbourne’s 112-day lockdown kickstarted her fitness journey. The former Big Brother contestant started walking for two hours a day, took up meditation and dropped the booze.
While she has said in the past that she doesn’t want to become ‘the poster girl’ for sobriety, she addressed her followers in an Instagram story earlier this month.
“Seem to be getting a lot of messages checking on whether I’ve taken up booze again, I haven’t!” she revealed. “643 days since my last tipple! Thanks for asking!”
Earlier this year, the radio host told viewers on The Project that her decision to stop drinking had been really helpful.
“I really noticed a huge difference in my day-to-day positivity and ability to deal with the pandemic and the ongoing changes to literally every part of our lives if I’m clear minded, and for me it’s been fantastic, a fantastic choice,” she said.
The star added that she had noticed that alcohol increased her feelings of anxiety in relation to the pandemic, and found that she wasn’t sleeping properly.
Chrissie often posts snaps of her walks on Instagram and completed a 300km walk for The Fred Hollows Foundation in August. The charity helps to end avoidable blindness, and provides ‘high quality eye care’ for those in ‘middle and low income communities and countries’.
The star was trying to raise 100k for charity, but ended up with a whopping 130k instead. Fans praised the star when she finally reached her month-long goal, with many calling her an ‘inspiration’.
“What a superstar Chrissie! Great to see an amazing foundation and beautiful human come together like this,” one fan gushed.
“Can I just say, apart from my family, you are literally my most favourite person on the planet,” another commented.
“Chrissie, you are amazing!! An absolute legend. What a beautiful heart you have,” a third chimed in.
