Jordin Sparks will light up the screen at the end of this summer in her first
movie role, but right now, she is showing off her new hot bod on the cover of Shape magazine.
Jordin has shed 50 pounds and is four sizes smaller than she was when she first
appeared on “American Idol” in 2007. WOW! I never thought she was a big girl!
The 22-year-old told Shape magazine that she experienced a wake-up call
before her 21st birthday that kick started her desire to lose weight.
The “Idol” winner was diagnosed with walking pneumonia and said that
with the illness, she “couldn’t breathe” and “felt totally fatigued.” I never knew this.
“I just wanted to be healthy. I remember thinking, ‘I’m
in my prime. I should be happy and fit.’ That was the moment when 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.”
The singer said eating smaller portions, choosing leaner foods and
going hiking in the mountains all contributed to her ability to shed the
“The weight really started falling off, and I could see my muscles. It was awesome,” she said.
INSPIRATION! For Sure!!
