DJ’s Incredible Transformation After 7.5st Weight Loss

DJ’s Incredible Transformation After 7.5st Weight Loss

A DJ from Devon looks like a totally different person after she lost 7.5 stone, finally giving her the confidence to perform in front of people again and even to win model of the year at the UK Glamour Awards ceremony.

Bonnie Stainer, 35, from Saunton was at her biggest when she weighed 16.5 stone four years ago and admitted she would eat whatever she wanted.

Deciding to take action, the mum-of-two turned her entire life around. The secret to her weight loss? She ate better and exercised more.

Despite having two young girls to look after, a DJ career and now a modelling career, she started exercising six times a week to lose the weight and help her feel more confident.

Bonnie went from a 56in waist to 26in - losing an incredible 30 inches - and also went down to a weight of 8.5st. After gaining muscle as the result of her workouts, she now weighs 9st.

This week she DJed at the UK Glamour Awards ceremony while also being a nominee in its model of the year category. She was stunned when she was revealed as the winner.

To celebrate, she declared that she was planning a Burger King for the first time in six months, followed by an ice-cream.

She said: "I hadn't been overweight until I fell pregnant with my first child. I just ate literally whatever I was not meant to, which I enjoyed at the time, but I piled on the pounds. The last time I weighed myself I was 16.5st.

"After I gave birth I tried to lose the weight and feel like me again, but within six months I was pregnant with my second daughter and it happened all over again.

"I have been a DJ for a few years but lost all my confidence and was so close to jacking it in and working in supermarket."

Bonnie said that there are no shortcuts to get in to shape, saying it's all about the hard work and staying consistent.

She said: "The key is being in the right frame of mind, along with routine, exercise, eating well and drinking water.

"I work out six days a week and try to rest one day a week but I'm still active running around after the kids. Sometimes I get up at 6am and do 30 minutes on the cross trainer wearing 27 kilos of weights.

"People think that sounds a lot but I was carrying a lot more than that when I was overweight.

"Sometimes I do look at my cross trainer and think I can't be bothered, then all I do is just think about what I'm trying to achieve and after I've done it I feel so much better."

Since losing weight, her Instagram followers have gone up to more than 20,000 in just over two years.

"It's crazy," admitted Bonnie. "I've now gone 360 degrees and am loving DJing again. My family and friends are just so pleased to see me back where I belong and doing so well.

"People may assume I'm big headed because of my success recently, but I'm the most down to earth person and no one is more shocked than me how well things are going."
