Singer Casey Donovan reveals the moving reason she is on a weight loss journey

Singer Casey Donovan reveals the moving reason she is on a weight loss journey and says she has already shed six kilos in one month – after reaching 136 kilos at her heaviest

Casey Donovan is on a mission to lose weight in the hopes of starting a family. 

The Australian Idol star, 34, says she wants to change her habits to ‘live a long and happy life’. 

‘I would like to start a family one day and just get my head and my heart and my body into the right frame of mind to be able to do that,’ she told The Daily Telegraph on Sunday.

Casey restarted Jenny Craig a month ago, weighing in at 114 kilos, and has since dropped an impressive 6 kilos. 

‘When I was sitting at the heavier scale of 136 kgs, it scared me. I didn’t know what I was doing and I didn’t know how to help myself,’ she said. 

‘I am at that point in my life now where I just want to be fit and healthy and make good decisions’.

The singer added that she has lost a lot of weight on her own and is now using Jenny Craig to complete the journey.  

Back in 2017, Casey revealed she had shed an incredible 23kgs in 15 weeks. 

Sharing a before and after picture, she said: ‘When motivation lacks, I look at how far I’ve come and I don’t ever want to go back to that girl in the white singlet.’

‘It’s not an easy road, but the payoff is so rewarding. Just to feel better in health and be able to run a little longer each week makes me feel so much stronger in the person I am and how proud I am of myself for coming this far.’

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph in 2020, Casey revealed she was focusing on healthy eating and maintaining a calorie deficit to lose weight.

‘My five a day would be broccolini, asparagus, sweet potato, onion (they’re a vegetable aren’t they?) and avocado,’ she said.

‘My body doesn’t work well on fruit in general because of my polycystic ovary syndrome.’

She also started exercising and admitted that ‘sex is great cardio’.

‘I have tried shakes and I’ve tried keto but at the end of the day you have to find something that is sustainable for your body,’ she explained.

‘A calorie deficit is the best thing that has worked for my body, as well as upping my protein.’
