She humorously called out the dependent relationship people have developed with their refrigerators and unnecessary eating habits while under stay-at-home orders.
The professional ballroom dancer admitted: ‘It was also happening right before my eyes, in the muffin-top region.’
The mother of one, who is now on a mission to change those habits, said that she can’t help indulging in peanut butter sandwiches.
‘Now the scales have become allies of the virus and are spreading untruths about our weight faster than peanut butter on a fresh crusty roll,’ she said.
While she may have indulged in treats during lockdown, it’s likely Sonia was quick to drop those extra kilos as she is known for living an active and healthy lifestyle.

The Channel Seven star also noted the importance of a good night’s sleep and ensures she exercises first thing in the morning.
Sonia also revealed to The Courier Mail that part of her regular workout routine is an at-home workout in the morning.
‘Then you’re done and you’ve got it out of the way and you don’t have to worry about going to the gym and being seen by people in public,’ she said.
The TV presenter also admitted she’s not a huge fan of exercise but ‘likes the way she feels afterwards’.
