Olivia Frazer, a ‘villain’ on Married At First Sight, has opened up about her weight loss struggle, saying she lost 13kg since leaving the reality show. On Friday, the 28-year-old teaching assistant took to Instagram to tell her 164,000 followers that she weighed around 80kg when filming MAFS.
“Now I’m back to 67kg as of this morning,” she remarked. I try to stay between 60 and 65, so there are a few more kilos [to lose],” she explained. Olivia previously claimed that she weighed 95kg during adolescence before undergoing gastric sleeve surgery at 22.
However, after suffering from gallstones during her rehabilitation, the now 28-year-old admitted to losing a dangerous amount of weight, plummeting to 45kg.
“My recovery was pretty good except I developed gallstones … When you have rapid weight loss you can develop that,” Olivia stated earlier this month. “So I was in a lot of pain. I went from 95kg to 45kg within a year.”

According to healthdirect.gov.au, gallstones can clog the tubes that convey digestive fluids to the intestine. Olivia further claimed that the surgery helped her prevent having excessively sagging skin.
“I didn’t have a lot of loose skin.” “I had a little bit in my arms, but my [breasts] were so saggy that I had to have them done,” Olivia explained, referring to a breast reduction she underwent following the gastric sleeve operation.
During the inaugural episode of MAFS in February, the Newcastle-based reality star admitted that her weight impacted how she treated herself and her relationships with men.
“I felt like I had no choice but to accept whatever I could get.” “I settled for what I thought I deserved, which is terrible because I definitely deserved a lot more,” Oliva explained at the time. She went on to say that being overweight was the source of many of her insecurities.
“When I was a teenager, I weighed about 95kg and tried to appear as confident as I could,” Olivia explained. “But I knew deep down that everyone was staring at the fat girl trying to squeeze into a skirt.” On Friday, the reality star responded to more inquiries from followers about the impact of her surgery via Instagram Stories.
“I can’t drink and eat at the same time, so I have to wait at least 10 minutes after I finish my drink before I can eat,” she explained.
She also reacted angrily to others who accused her of taking the easy route by undergoing surgery. “F**k off!” she yelled back. “Surgery is the absolute last thing anyone wants to do.” It is the last option. “It’s not fun not being able to eat like everyone else, not being able to drink like everybody else.”
She stated that the operation caused her to “vomit all the time” because her stomach was too large, emphasizing that it was not an aesthetic procedure, but was done for her health. “I had to give up a normal life to be a healthy weight.” “I like myself when I look in the mirror,” she stated.
