Jordin Sparks is feeling happy and healthy after her recent 50 pound weight loss.
She even graced the cover of August's Shape magazine.
So, how did she do it? How did she slim down so much?
"There is no secret. It's just eating better and working out! It's definitely a daily thing."
Oh, well that makes sense!
How about for working out though, is there anything she specifically likes to do?
"My mom's best friend is a Zumba instructor and I loved it. I started with walking then went to jogging and then Zumba. I started [working with a trainer] and we did 30 minutes of circuit training so I didn't feel like I needed to be in the gym for two hours."
So if you're working out and trying to eat right, how do you stop from over eating?
"I stop now when I'm full. I love food and I love to eat. My thing was, do I really need seconds or do I want it just because it tastes good?"
How did it feel when you finally reached your goal and ended up in a bikini on a magazine cover?
"I could only dream having a cover and looking like that. I thought, 'I did it!' I had to walk back to my dressing room and I had to pull myself together because I was overwhelmed. I cried. I shed a little tear but I'm really happy with how it turned out."
We're so happy for you!
If she can do it through simple exercise and dieting and end up looking that good, then you can do it too!
