In her post, Marnie said she lost the weight thanks to portion control and exercise.
“Turn it around, boys! Was in a pretty dark place with my confidence a few months ago and felt like I had lost myself. Like old Marnie’s gone. With all these health issues as a mom, I’ve really come down,” her post read.
“I gained A LOT from comfort eating and PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) and I thought that was it. I would always feel a little [s**t].

“But I’m feeling better after losing 2 1/2 stones and getting back to exercising and eating better. Not better – just better portion control’
“But I’m feeling better after losing 2 1/2 stones and getting back to exercising and eating better. Not better – just better portion control.”
She added in part of her post, “I literally can’t believe how different I look — and more importantly — feel now.”
It comes after Marnie was praised for her weight loss by fans on social media.
“I can’t believe it myself! But I feel like so many of you can relate to my struggles. Juggling two kids can be difficult but I’ve found the best combination to help me get to this point and I’m so happy,” she said of her weight loss.
Marnie revealed she enlisted the services of a nutritionist to help her reach her goal weight after realizing she was making nutritional mistakes after her pregnancy.
In disbelief: It comes after Marnie was praised for her weight loss by fans on social media. ‘I can’t really believe it myself!’ she joked
She said: “I got myself into such a rut. I gained so much weight and couldn’t put it off but I found the most amazing nutritionist to help me with all the food and knowledge.
“I realized I was doing so much wrong, but it was actually basic things I didn’t know.
“I also found the most amazing PT. She was incredible. I told her I don’t like intense workouts, I never have, so she managed to give me small, short workouts that have given me the most amazing results.
Friends were quick to congratulate the TV personality, with Geordie Shore co-star Sophie Kasaei posting: “I’ve never seen anyone look this amazing after what you’ve been through and having two kids.”
Elsewhere, an impressed Holly Hagan added, “You look crazy.”
Former The Only Way Is Essex cast member Lauren Goodger wrote: “Beautiful baby wow well done.”
What is PCOS? Causes, symptoms and treatment explained…
PCOS stands for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
PCOS is a hormonal disorder that causes enlarged ovaries with small cysts on the outer edges.
Women with PCOS may have irregular or prolonged menstrual periods or excessive male hormone (androgen) levels.
Symptoms include menstrual irregularities, excessive hair growth, acne and obesity.
Fertility can also be affected.
While the exact cause of PCOS isn’t known, insulin resistance caused by a highly refined and processed diet is believed to be one of the biggest triggers.
PCOS can be treated with diet, birth control pills, and other oral medications.
