Ada Nicodemou, who starred in the TV show Home and Away, admitted earlier this year that she had grappled with body image issues in the past.
The 44-year-old actress, however, appeared more confident than ever as she posed poolside in a striped red bikini on Wednesday.
In a sequence of sun-drenched photographs published to Instagram, Ada grinned while reading a magazine on a sun lounger.
The photos highlighted Ada’s taut tummy, toned legs, and arms.
Ada stayed sun-safe and accessorized with a tan hat and oversized sunglasses.
It comes after the mother of one admitted to The Daily Telegraph in June that she had previously struggled with body image.
‘I’m not going to lie, there have been occasions when I haven’t felt as confident as I should,’ she admitted to the publication.
‘We all had those moments, and I still do now,’ Ada continued, ‘but for the most part, I surround myself with people I love.’
‘I think overall I am confident in my own skin.’
The actress also stated that she maintains her fitness by eating well and exercising on a daily basis.
Ada told Who magazine in April that exercising is a sort of self-care for her as she juggles her hectic work and raising her son Johnas.
‘I make sure that my exercise is a priority – that means I’m a priority, too,’ she said.
‘The first thing I do when I get my weekly schedule from work is planned out when I’ll exercise.’ I’m going to put this on my calendar and make a date with myself.
‘My workouts are a time for myself, so they’re very important to me and always have been.’
Ada tries to get to bed early so she’s up at 4.30 am for a 30-minute training session before work.
She works out three to four times per week, with a mix of weight training, cardio, boxing, Pilates, and walks, as well as a few personal training sessions.
