How has Lucy lost weight?

Since giving birth to son Roman last year, Lucy has been open about her weight loss journey.

The reality star previously admitted to eating balanced meals in order to keep in shape.

Speaking to the Mail Online, Lucy explained: “It is important to stay fit and healthy to have some me-time, but when you have a newborn, you just want to sleep and spend time with your child.

“Priorities do change, I don’t have time to train four times a week like I used to, but that’s fine. My life is different now, Roman is my priority, not the gym!”
