Saira Khan has shown off her lockdown weight loss with a topless snap of her toned body.
The 50-year-old Loose Women star had started her journey to transform her body at the beginning of the year but it has been accelerated during the lockdown period due to the coronavirus pandemic.
She has posted a series of photos of during her transformation and has shared videos on social media of her gruelling fitness regime.
Earlier this week, Saira booked into a Spanish wellness retreat and in a lengthy statement on Instagram, shared her achievements with her fans.
Posing in just a pair of bikini bottoms, Saira can be seen looking out over the Spanish landscape as she maintains her modesty by keeping her back to the camera.
Saira shared with her fans: “I rarely take time to reflect on what I have personally achieved in my life. Not in terms of material possessions, but as a person emotionally and spiritually.
“I’ve just always strived for more and more without taking the time to stop, breathe and pat myself on the back and to be truly grateful, thankful and proud of where I’ve come from to where I am now.
“The house, cars, clothes, etc are not the signs of success – for me it’s being happy with the person I am, having my family, friends and health. All these things I’ve worked hard for and overcome obstacles to achieve them against all the odds.”
She added: “These are all the things money can’t buy – but are a reflection of your values and priorities.
“Taking time to reflect helps me to put things into perspective, and not be so hard on myself. If you can give yourself 15 mins today, just stop and give yourself a pat on the back if you think you deserve it. If you don’t, nobody else will.”
Saira concluded: “You are doing better than you think. Appreciate your efforts and enjoy them today.”
The Loose Women panelist said that her time at the Spanish retreat was not to do with losing weight but more about “escaping from ‘noise’ and finding myself again”.
Saira added: “In this photo what you can’t see is the amount of inner strength I have gained from this week. I feel like a different woman – stronger, fitter, healthier, happier.”
