In the first trio of images Saira could be seen standing in her bedroom with the chic piece unzipped, and in the second batch fit comfortably into her jumpsuit.
The doting mother explained in her caption: ‘In January I did a little video about how I could not zip up this jumpsuit. I vowed myself I would zip it up in 3 months.
‘Well it took me 8 months to achieve the goal. I wanted to share this to say that getting healthier and fitter takes time and you have to be patient with yourself.
‘Throughout those 8 months I’ve had to live a normal life, which means stress, lack of sleep, eating too much and not drinking enough water.’
Saira wrote: ‘It took me 8 months to achieve the goal. I wanted to share this to say that getting healthier and fitter takes time and you have to be patient with yourself’
She continued: ‘The @thefast800_official has helped me enormously to understand the foods which nourish my body and @juicemasterretreats is a place I have used to reset, relax, de stress and just be at one with myself.
‘The results as you can see are obvious, healthier, happier, trimmer, and more relaxed me.
‘You will not be able to lose fat by just eating the right foods, you also have to relax, sleep and drink water.’
Saira concluded: ‘Finally, just because you didn’t reach your goal in the time you said you would, does not make you a failure, just keep going and you will succeed.
‘I never weigh myself. I do not use scales as a measure of my health. I used how I feel about myself and I use my waist as a good measure.
‘The key thing is whatever goal you are trying to achieve, start it with a smile and you will get far.’ [sic]
Last month Saira, who made her name on Lord Sugar’s The Apprentice, stayed at the Juice Masters Retreat, which operates from Portugal, Turkey and Algarve locations and can cost £2300 for a week’s stay.
Its founder Jason Vale, who has sold six million books, promises for ‘an environment that would truly nourish mind, body and spirit, and take people on a journey that would inspire and relax in equal measures’.
While there, Saira kept her followers updated with her progress, sharing a sensational snap of herself in a neon green and pink bikini while showcasing her impressive washboard abs.
