The drug smuggler from “Cocaine Cassie” looks unrecognizable as she shows off her weight loss

“Cocaine Cassie” Sainsbury has proudly shown her weight loss transformation as she seeks her return to Australia to work as a personal trainer

“Cocaine Cassie” Sainsbury has proudly shown her weight loss transformation as she seeks her return to Australia to work as a personal trainer.

The 26-year-old is spending her final months on parole in Bogota, Colombia, after being jailed in April 2017 for smuggling 5.8 kg of cocaine into the country.

Sainsbury has lost 29 kg since her arrest and 12 kg since she was released from prison in April last year.

The former prisoner recently shared a series of snapshots of her slim body on her Instagram account that were almost unrecognizable to the woman who was arrested four years ago.

Sainsbury shared a photo of a handwritten manifesto written in Spanish on Friday that translated a message on how friends and family should treat one another.

“Your friends must get you a business, not a drunkenness,” one line said.

“Your family must support you and not restrict you. Your partner has to help you make progress, not spend. ‘

Sainsbury shared a handwritten note on her Instagram story on Friday with a series of mottos that she lives by. The words translate to “Your family must support you, not limit you” and “Your partner must help you make progress, not spend”.

In an interview with Daily Mail Australia in July, Sainsbury described her daily life in and out of El Buen Pastor’s prison, sharing her dreams of an easier existence where she could finally shed her “Cocaine Cassie” identity.

About her new beginning outside of prison, she said, “It’s as if everything starts again here.”

Sainsbury spent three years in El Buen Pastor Prison, locked in a two-by-two meter cell with up to five other inmates. She still has nightmares about it.

“We were woken up between 2:30 and 3:30 in the morning,” she claimed. The inmates received breakfast while it was still dark.

Between 5 am and 7 am, the guards did a head count. Sometimes they are friendly, sometimes “inhuman”, she claimed.

“You were expected to be showered, beds made, and cleaned. You never knew exactly when, but you had to be ready. ‘

HOW TO GET A BODY LIKE COCAINE CASSIE:

Cassie Sainsbury shared these five tips on how to get her lean physique:

1. Cassie follows calorie deficit rules that balance the amount of calories you consume with the amount consumed in a day

2. You have a balanced diet, including all food groups

3. Cassie exercises one hour three times a week

4. Drink plenty of water

5. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables

The food was “absolutely awful”, generally with rice, a small portion of vegetables or lettuce and meat.

“If it was chicken, you knew it was chicken. If it was meat, you didn’t really know what it was, ”she said.

Health inspectors occasionally closed the prison kitchen – once for four days, she said.

But during her time in custody, Sainsbury was allowed to take up a post teaching English at a local school twice a day.

One of her newer tattoos is a pocket watch that shows the time she walked to freedom through the large blue prison door.

Sainsbury was paroled at 11:30 p.m. on Friday April 3 last year and now lives in a studio in Chapinero, east Bogota.

She fell in love with a computer technician after abandoning her engagement to prison fiancé Joli Pico.

Relationship with Ms. Pico fell apart for two reasons, Sainsbury said. Outside the prison it wasn’t the same, and Pico “ended up with someone else”.

She also doesn’t speak to her ex-boyfriend, personal trainer Scott Broadbridge, who was a loyal defender and who brought her a rose to a Colombian prison shortly after her arrest in April 2017.

Sainsbury told the Mail that it was still in its infancy with her new flame, whose name she did not want to reveal.

“She doesn’t know how well I’m known in Australia.

“But here they don’t understand that kind of (fame). There’s so much of it in Colombia (cocaine smuggling). ‘

However, Sainsbury cannot work – or be vaccinated against Covid – because she is a foreigner.

She reports to the judge in charge of her case on probation once a month and admits that she has few local friends.

Sainsbury’s sentence officially expires next May, but she’s hoping she’ll be allowed to return to Australia in late 2021.

She plans to live with her mother Lisa Evans in Adelaide and expects culture shock.

Sainsbury rarely speaks English in Bogota and now has traces of a Spanish accent.

Upon her return, she hopes to start a personal training company – her career before she was incarcerated in Bogota.

“All I really want to do is get away from it all and have my life back,” she said. “I don’t always want to be known as Cocaine Cassie.”

Sainsbury said she stood by the version of events she had previously told 60 Minutes, that she was pressured by a Brazilian drug lord when she smuggled the 18 packets of cocaine into Bogota in April 2017.

She then claimed that a mysterious man named “Angelo Sanchez” allegedly threatened to kill her mother and then-boyfriend Scott Broadbridge unless she committed the crime.

However, she was unable to prove this in a Colombian court because she had forgotten the passcode for her phone.

When asked if she would still be concerned about these criminal elements when she returned to Australia, she admitted, “Of course, that’s always a thought on the back of my mind.

“I think we’ll wait and see what happens.”
