Married At First Sight’s Martha Kalifatidis unveils her incredible weight loss after completing boyfriend Michael Brunelli’s 30-day challenge
Married At First Sight bride Martha Kalifatidis has debuted her impressive weight loss after taking part in a 30-day workout challenge during lockdown.
The Bondi reality star, 33, shared a gallery of photos to Instagram on Wednesday of herself triumphantly posing in a pair of skinny jeans that used to be too small for her.
‘I bought these jeans at the beginning of lockdown, just the usual “add to cart” purchase, got my normal size and didn’t think much of it. When they arrived… they didn’t fit,’ Martha explained in the caption.

‘Not like they were tight and I couldn’t do the buttons up… they didn’t fit. Like they wouldn’t even go on. I couldn’t get them over my a**.’
After jumping on the scales, Martha realised she was the heaviest she’d ever been.
‘When did this happen to me? Then the negative thoughts came… “You deserve to be punished,” “You should starve,”‘ the influencer added.
Wow! Martha couldn’t believe her jeans fit, after she previously couldn’t get them ‘over my a**
Hard work pays off! In her caption, Martha revealed that she purchased the jeans at the beginning of lockdown, only to discover that they didn’t fit. Thankfully, after following her boyfriend Michael’s 30-day program, she was able to shed unwanted kilos and eventually slide into her new trousers
Luckily, Martha’s personal trainer boyfriend Michael Brunelli swooped in to save the day by encouraging her to try his 30-day weight loss challenge.
As part of the challenge, Martha went to bed early, woke up at sunrise, completed 30 minutes a day of exercise and walked 10,000 steps.
‘It was f**king hard. To challenge myself even more I’ve now added pilates to the mix to work on my core and posture, or lack thereof!’ she added.
‘When did this happen to me?’ The influencer admitted she was ‘the heaviest she’d ever been in her life’ prior to embarking upon her lockdown weight loss journey
Martha completed her caption by encouraging others to take control of their health, even if they feel helpless.
‘Shift your mindset. Instead of looking to punish yourself, look to nourish and better yourself. Instead of looking to punish yourself, look to nourish and better yourself,’ she advised.
‘Instead of thinking of it as just a salad, think of it as a favour to your body… you know the same body you abuse with Pinot Noir and 3+ coffees a day and so much sodium that your organs are the size of sultanas,’ she added.

Martha previously discussed her weight gain in a candid Instagram post in July, revealing that she’d gained seven kilograms since appearing on Married At First Sight in 2019.
‘I think part of it is getting older and metabolism changes,’ she explained.
‘But for the most part my job requires me to be stationary! I spend most of my waking hours staring into a screen.’
She added: ‘If I’m not making content, I’m editing it. Also the hours I work are actually gross and I have no balance… but I’m working on it.’
