‘How the heck did that happen? I only had a few roast tatties and a mince pie and I can’t get into my clothes!’ she captioned the image.

‘If you find yourself in this position today, after indulging and enjoying the festive break relaxing – then please do not BEAT YOURSELF UP about it,’ she went on. ‘You are not FAT, a failure, ugly, or anything else that is negative.

‘Yes you’ve gained a few pounds and you feel uncomfortable – it’s not the end of the world. I know how you’re feeling this morning.

‘Ok, the easiest thing to do would be to throw this jumpsuit away and get a bigger size. But I love a challenge and so I’m going to focus on getting this jumpsuit zipped up in 3 months time without dieting, depriving, going without and looking miserable.

‘I’m going to do it with a smile on my face, written goals, portion control, being more active and being mindful and honest with myself. I’m not going to stress.

‘I’m going to enjoy focusing on a goal, connecting with the power of my own self control, rewarding myself with self care and being motivated by others on the same journey.

‘I know I’m going to have good and bad days, and on the bad days, I’m going to focus on feeding my brain with positive images, messages and talk to my friends that will listen and motivate.

‘I’m going to share on here my journey to “Zip it up” – I’ll share my eating plan, my activities and do a daily plan on “how I’m feeling”.

This comes after she hinted she’s been inundated with work offers since quitting Loose Women as she told fans she’s focusing on ‘other media projects.’

The former The Apprentice contestant took to her Instagram and gave her followers the update during a Live workout, where she enthused about ‘new adventures’.

New adventures: ‘Now I want to focus on pursuing other media projects, running my skincare business, Saira Skin, and developing my love for wellness’ said the TV personality

She said: ‘It was time to go after five years on Loose Women… And you know when you just know it’s the right time to take that plunge and focus on other things… looking for new adventures.

‘You just have to do it, you can’t think ahead “what if, what, maybe?” Believe in yourself, believe in your ability, believe in your own karma you created.’

The fitness fanatic also urged her fans to be real, adding: ‘Be honest, be authentic, you have to take your time. I’ve done five years on Loose Women – I had a great time but it is time to move on.’

Saira explained that she decided to leave the show after spending time with her family during lockdown and reflecting on her life at 50. 

Departing wishes: Her update came after she revealed that she wants to be replace on Loose Women by ‘a gay, transgender or non binary person’ after quitting the show (Pictured in 2018)

She continued: ‘All those things have really come together, you have to jump and make things happen. 

‘It was a difficult decision, but when you feel there is nothing left to share on a show that is all about sharing, it’s time to bow out.

‘I think I’ve shown everyone I’m an opinionated, strong woman, but now I want to focus on pursuing other media projects, running my skincare business, Saira Skin, and developing my love for wellness.

‘Others too have found that Covid has given them the kick they needed to quit jobs that don’t bring them satisfaction, and to try something new.’

‘So for me change comes at the beginning of 2021 by leaving a familiar seat on @loosewomen . It wasn’t an easy decision, but one that I needed to make in order to grow myself in other ways. 

‘I came to the show a troubled soul and I will eternally be grateful for the platform @loosewomen gave me to share, speak up and out.

‘I leave the show feeling I’ve dealt with the baggage and now can enjoy moving forward to grow and enjoy new life opportunities, which includes growing my skincare business @sairaskinuk and exploring other Media projects.

‘I’d love my @loosewomen seat to be given to either a gay, transgender or non binary person – that will help the show to be more reflective of the world we live in. That’s what I would do if I was in charge.

‘I don’t like formal goodbyes, so I won’t be on the show to look back at my ‘best bits’. That’s not how I want to say goodbye…
