Having appeared on Channel 7 reality relationship show Seven Year Switch with her partner Ryan earlier this year, mum-of-four Cassie Thistleton seems to have no intention of sharing her private life anytime soon, and quite frankly, we couldn’t be happier.
From the moving story of her stillborn son, Dex, to her confessions about her family’s financial status and the day-to-day challenges of being a mum, her raw honesty is as refreshing as it is long overdue. And her latest confession is no different.
Sharing a side-by-side comparison image of herself to Instagram on Tuesday and admitting to feeling the “post-baby body” pressure, Thistelton wrote, “12 Weeks Pregnant v 12 Weeks Postpartum. Excuse the pics, don’t stress it’s only skin and we all have it! Whilst I was 12 weeks pregnant in the first photo it’s important to remember I was also only 12 months postpartum from my 3rd pregnancy at this time also! I had only started training at 5 months postpartum so super impressed with how well I had done!” she explained.
“I would absolutely love to have my 12 week pregnancy body back in another 9 months time. But given this is now my 4th child I am being realistic when I say that I will probably never ever look like that again!
“I am currently training 3 days a week so not over doing it and because Mena is still feeding on demand and every 2-3 hours I am literally running straight there and back again in between feeds! My 1.5hrs out of the house is doing wonders for my sanity as well. Comparing pics side by side keeps me honest and has me returning to the gym!
