Jordin Sparks, talented singer, vowed to change her life and lose weight after a near death incident when she caught pneumonia.
"I just wanted to be healthy. It was just before my 21st birthday. I had walking pneumonia, couldn't breathe and felt totally fatigued. I remember thinking, 'I'm in my prime. I should be happy and fit.' That was the moment I decided that changes needed to be made… I knew I had a long road ahead of me. I was barely working out, and my diet was a mess. I had to address when, what, and how much I was eating."
So she did just that!
Cut to 50 pounds later, she's posing in a bikini on the cover of Shape magazine.
"For me to even be talking about bikini confidence is crazy. If you had asked me a couple of months ago, I probably would have been like, 'What are you talking about?' So it's actually huge for me to even feel OK with putting a bikini on."
Well you're looking great, gurl!
Congrats on changing your life! We're sure it wasn't easy but it's so worth it in the end.
