Lizzie Sobinoff shares rare throwback photos from before Married At First Sight

Married At First Sight bride Elizabeth Sobinoff has shared a powerful message about suffering from chronic illness.

The 29-year-old posted a gallery of throwback photos to Instagram on Wednesday from two years before her debut on Nine’s social experiment in 2019.

The images showed a seemingly carefree Lizzie soaking up the sun at the beach and socialising with friends – but she revealed they actually disguised her debilitating health problems at the time.

She captioned the photos: ‘You never know what’s really going on with someone. This was right before I started work again [after] being on a disability pension.’

Lizzie also explained the beach snaps were taken shortly after doctors had told her she was extremely sensitive to sunlight.

‘I was having the best time but I then was really sick afterwards,’ she said. ‘Message is, don’t judge a book by its cover.’

It comes after the former jewellery store manager revealed last Thursday she’d just undergone a round of medical procedures for a mystery ailment.

She posted a series of photos to Instagram ‘from the last seven days’, and also updated fans on her health.

While the photos showed Lizzie enjoying a day out with her friend, she explained in the caption she’d just ‘had steroid injections and part of my ear cut off’.

She promised she would explain her health situation in depth on IGTV at a later date.

‘A few pics from the last seven days. Mortal Kombat with one of my mains, gelato with my aunt, the fur babies, takeaway Thai food with my girls and dirty chai before I was a judge at an event,’ she wrote.

‘I also had steroid injections and part of my ear cut off which I’ll do an IGTV soon.’

Lizzie showed off her slender figure in activewear in the accompanying photos from her trip to the cinema with a friend to see Mortal Kombat.

While Lizzie did not specify why she required steroid injections and part of her ear removed, she has faced chronic health issues in the past.

She told 9Honey in 2018 she’d been diagnosed with two debilitating illnesses, which have caused her weight to fluctuate over the years.

The first illness is porphyria, a blood disorder that can affect the nervous systems and other organs, including the skin. 

The second is autoimmune disease, a mild form of Lupus that causes her body to attack itself.

She revealed in September last year she’d spent ‘more than a decade’ on a disability pension in her late teens and twenties because she was unable to work.

Her health problems were exacerbated, she said, because of an early misdiagnosis.

‘Before I went on Married At First Sight, I hadn’t worked for more than a decade. I was on a disability pension because I had a misdiagnosis and everything,’ she said on In the Bath with Aunty Garth.

‘It was a horror story come to life, what had happened,’ she added.
