‘I was strong enough to take it’: MAFS’ Elizabeth Sobinoff unveils huge 10kg weight loss in Logies transformation and insists she’s glad she was fat-shamed on national TV
She was unceremoniously criticised over her weight by her ‘husband’ Sam Ball while appearing on Married At First Sight.
But Elizabeth Sobinoff has had the last laugh as she stunned on the 2019 Logie Awards red carpet on Sunday night while unveiling her huge 10kg weight loss.
The 28-year-old ensured she was looking her best for the star-studded event after slimming down to a size 8 since her appearance on the reality series.

Elizabeth had all eyes on her as she debuted her shock transformation at the Logies while oozing glamour in a stunning Marian Rhame gown.
She revealed in an interview with NW that she has lost an impressive total of 10kgs since filming wrapped for MAFS’ sixth season, earlier this year.
On the show, Elizabeth’s TV husband Sam came under fire for fat-shaming her just moments after meeting her on their wedding day.

‘I’ve never really dated girls as big as Elizabeth in the past,’ he told producers, before adding that he would have to get her ‘running in the mornings’ to lose weight.
Elizabeth was visibly shocked when she was shown Sam’s comments towards the end of the series, but has now said she’s glad it was her that was criticised over her weight and not any of her female co-stars.
‘It happened to me on national TV, but it happens to women every single day in life,’ she said.

‘I was strong enough to take it. Some of the other girls on the show were quite insecure, so I’m glad that it was me.’
Elizabeth admitted that it wasn’t the first time she’d heard remarks, like those Sam had made, and insisted she always feels confident no matter her size.
She has previously said ‘getting rid of toxic people’ helped to fuel her weight loss, but revealed her weight fluctuates due to medical conditions she is dealing with.

Elizabeth has an auto-immune condition and porphyria (a blood disorder) that is continuously affecting her weight and she has to eat a high-carb diet to manage it.
The blonde, who was a size 10 when she was filming for MAFS, added that despite her up and down weight she has ‘never felt self-conscious’ or the need to ‘justify her size’.
And she was seen radiating confidence as she posed up a storm at the Logies in a form-fitting strapless gown that emphasised her slender physique.
Elizabeth joined a slew of her Married At First co-stars at the awards, including Cameron Merchant, Jules Robinson, Heidi Latcham and Martha Kalifatidis.
