KATIE Waissel showcased her incredibly svelte figure in a vibrant red bikini during her Italian getaway.
The former X Factor star, 34, looked utterly relaxed as she soaked up the sun while in her holiday resort’s pool.
The singer highlighted her gym-honed figure in her daring two-piece, which displayed her plethora of intricate tattoos.
Katie, who unveiled an incredible weight loss transformation last October, continued her relaxed theme as she left her brunette hair loose in a tousled style and sported minimal make-up.
In May, the personal trainer reflected on her weight loss journey and admitted that “looking in the mirror made her cry” at the time.
The former talent show star shared before and after photos after a year long transformation, which showed off her slimmer legs and her toned stomach while clad in her underwear.
Single mum Katie, who has two-year-old son Hudson, wrote a candid post as she reflected on her transformation.
The singer wrote a lengthy post where she penned: “Last summer, I was fresh off the boat from an international move, a first time mum, & in the next chapter of rebuilding my life as a single parent & career change.
“It was this picture that sparked a huge change within me. Everything from the frowned facial expression, hair loss, exhaustion, and yes lastly my body shape that i wasn’t used to nor recognized.
“I looked at myself in the mirror & cried. Not because I was horrified, but because I didn’t know how I would find the strength or time to do anything to make a positive change,” she continued.
“B U T I did! I made a promise to my son Hudson that I would do anything possible to rebuild my physical strength to not only play chase, football, throw him up in the air as he laughs, but to also make sure he is protected always as it is just him and I.
“A year on, I can’t believe how my entire being has changed. Taking care of yourself from the inside out is so imperative! From taking the right multivitamins (I take one with a higher iron content) to fueling your body with the right nutrition, creating the right mindset, allowing yourself to feel all the feels (you don’t have to be positive all of the time!) I was able to, and still continue to, rebuild the best version of myself for my little one!”
Katie enthusiastically penned: “The first thing I tell my clients is ‘There is no expiration date on a lifestyle change’ & this is what I want to share with you.
“We are A L L a constant work in progress, & as long as our intentions are honest and pure, then the rest will follow…..
“I know that summer time is here again, & we have the ‘summer body’ message thrown in our faces, but take from this that there are so many summers ahead, & winters & springs & falls!”
She concluded: “Ignore the heavily edited promos, & rediscover your own beauty strength & greatness! Workout to better your health fitness & mindset, because if you do, you can never fail. We are all in this together! All my love, Katie”.
Katie had previously unveiled her jaw-dropping transformation back in December 2019, with another before and after picture.
Katie has been busy juggling life as a single mum since splitting with Hudson’s father, Andy Speer, and has swapped music to become a personal trainer.
