Revealing her secrets, the singer says she starts each day with a walk and aims to do 15,000 steps daily.

Also flaunting her fit physique for Woman’s Day was Anna Winter, who appeared on last year’s The Biggest Loser: Transformed. 

Starting out on the program, the blonde weighed 135 kilograms and lost a jaw dropping 46.2 kilograms during her time on the show.

It was a life-changing experience for Anna, who is now studying to be a personal trainer.

Having lost another 21.8 kilograms after filming wrapped, Anna, like Casey, says that walking is one of the secrets to her weight-loss success.  

‘Every day I’d get up at the crack of dawn, and I’d walk and walk’ she told the publication.

Still in disbelief that she’s now shrunk to a size 10, the star says when she’s hanging out her underwear on the clothes line she thinks ‘Are they mine?’.

 2016 Married At First Sight star Jess Wardrop was left humiliated on the show after her new ‘husband’ Dave Crisp said he was ‘expecting something a little different’.

Unsurprisingly, their relationship did not work out, but joyful Jess has added a new man to her life while also subtracted 10 kilograms from her body.

The popular personality frequently posts photos of her workouts onto her Instagram page, and last June inspired fans with a ‘Transformation Tuesday’ post.

Talking with Woman’s Day, the star says ‘she’s so proud of herself’ and credits a personal trainer for help with her weight loss.
