“I definitely thought I was physically disordered in Love Island because I was so insecure,” she said.
She lost four stone in the years before appearing on the hit ITV show, citing her father, Eddie’s death in 2016 as a possible catalyst.
Speaking of a time in her life when she kept calories to a minimum, she said: “I usually carry a chocolate bar in my bag if I’m feeling very weak and I’ll take a bite of the bar. chocolate to keep me awake, that’s ridiculous.”
Shaughna insists she always had the mindset that being thinner would make her happy, however, by the time she achieved her goal, she had reached the point where she felt ‘too thin’.
However, the turning point came, when Shaughna decided to become physically stronger and look fit, which made a change for the better in her eating habits.
And Shaughna has now taken that change a step further and hopes to inspire others with the launch of her new wellness plan that combines a website and mobile app, Be You. With Shaughna.
A mission statement on her website reads, “I’ve created a true EVERY BODY fitness and lifestyle plan and put building your confidence first. The Be You Plan is all about believing in yourself, feeling empowered, and becoming more confident than you’ve ever been before!”
Shaughna revealed the motivation behind her debut was being trolled about her looks.
“I had to receive judgment and criticism about my appearance for a long time,” she explains.
“I’ve done every fad diet and all different shapes and sizes, yet the comments keep popping up.
“I realize now that the key to feeling happy and confident is NOT the opinion of others, but about self-love, confidence, and confidence.
“This mindset has become a game changer and that’s why I’m so excited to launch ‘BE FRIENDS WITH SHAUGHNA’ – it’s the formula that has changed the way I look and I want to share it to the world.
“This isn’t your typical quick, short-term, self-punishment regimen – I’ve been there, done it, and they don’t last. This is all about creating healthy, enjoyment habits. your exercises and build a positive mental long-term lifestyle.
“And by creating an online community with a plan, we can all work together, motivating and encouraging each other along the way.”
