Michelle Bridges admits that it was “the most difficult time of my life” to be taken to court for drunk driving.

The former Biggest Loser star and celebrity trainer was caught around 11.25 am on Australia Day with a blood alcohol content of 0.086 with her five year old son in the car.

Bridges, 49, has called the experience humiliating, mainly because it revealed her messy divorce with friend and former co-star Steve “Commando” Willis.

On Wednesday, she spoke for the first time since her tearing apologies at Waverley Local Court after a week ago.

“The last month was the most difficult time of my life,” she wrote on Instagram.

‘What I would like to say is thank you – to my loved ones, my friends, my team and everyone who contacted me.

“I have received so many friendly messages from both strangers and people I know. The biggest thanks to you all.

“I know the repentance and the guilt will not disappear, but I am determined to continue, work hard and be thankful for all the good things in my life.”

Shortly after he was convicted of driving under the influence, tearful bridges outside the court said: “I want to take this opportunity to express my deep remorse, shame and humiliation (over) this incident and extreme lack of judgment.”

Bridges pleaded guilty after they were drawn in her Range Rover with her son Axel as she rode through Bellevue Hill, in the eastern suburbs of Sydney.

She was fined $ 750, her driver’s license was disqualified for three months, and she will have to install an alcohol locking device in her car for a year.

“I want to take this opportunity to express my deep remorse, shame and humiliation about this incident and extreme lack of judgment,” she told the court last Tuesday.

“I want to apologize to my family, friends, and community for this gross error of judgment and the consequences of these actions will haunt me forever.

“I ask forgiveness for my larger community and my family, and I thank you for your support.”

A few moments earlier, her lawyer Tony Bellanto QC argued that she should not be hit with a criminal conviction for the “millions of pounds” she helped throw off Australians.

“She has been responsible for the loss of two million kilograms of Australian citizens for more than 10 years,” Bellatoni told the court during the conviction.

“That’s powerful – two million kilos in ten years.”

“A belief would act as a” scar “for the rest of her life … while she is in fact a good mother, she is hardworking and this has had a profound effect on her life.

“It’s a special case, she’s a special person.”

Magistrate Allison Hawkins rebuked the entry and said, “Do you advance that there is a special level of justice for a person with special status in the community?”

The magistrate said that although she appreciated that Bridges had been humiliated, the fact that she had gone through a tough time would have been cold comfort to the victims if she had had an accident.

Bridges looked stressed when she stepped out of a car last Tuesday morning with a team of lawyers and supporters and entered her way to the courthouse, dressed in a black suit, heels and a cool pink polka-dot top.

After she was charged on January 26, Bridges issued a statement claiming that she was going through a “very difficult time … with the breakup of my long-term relationship” with Steve “Commando” Willis at the time.

“I want to express my deep regret for breaking the law, this was a terrible mistake and a mistake,” Bridges said in a statement.

“This behavior is unforgivable and I am absolutely destroyed and ashamed to find myself in this position.

“It has been a very difficult time for me to break my long-term relationship in recent weeks.”

Her ex-partner Willis posted a cryptic Instagram message on Instagram earlier this week and said: ‘So many things to be thankful, joyful and happy for at the moment. What are you currently grateful for? “

Bridges and Commando, her colleague in the air, went out with their relationship in 2013, after years of working together on The Biggest Loser.

Bridges has written several books on weight loss and fitness and has started the online business of 12 Week Body Transformation.

Bridges’ legal team said the court was a special case because it had helped Australians lose “millions of pounds” through her many fitness businesses
