FAB LIVING: Jill Scott Celebrates Dropping 63 Pounds!

In the latest issue of Us Weeky on stands now, Jill Scott opens up about her weight loss and the lifestyle regime she uses to keep shedding the pounds.  Get the deets inside.....

Jill Scott, whose The Light Of The Sun album just debuted at #1 on  Billboard, has gone through a noticable physical change and she opened up about it to Us Weekly.  The 39-year-old star said she has lost 63lbs the last 2 years and adopted a healthier lifestye.  

So what lifestyle changes did she make to look so refreshed and fabulous these days?  For starters, she eats three low fat meals a day and does three 60 minute cardio and strength training sessions, three times a week, with trainer Scott Parker .

Her weight loss journey was spurred on by the birth of her son Jett in 2009.  'There's a world of discovery in his eyes, and I want to be around to enjoy it,' she said.

And she knew she had to make a change in her life when, "I'd walk up nine steps and be out of breath!"  

And although she's down to 200lbs and plans to lose more weight, she said, "I'll never be a stick figure."

When asked how baby boy Jett fits into her routine, she said she loves to take him along for biking outdoors. "We have fun!"  

By the way, Jilly is currently in New Orleans headling the Essence Fest tomorrow night.   Congrats Jilly!

Fat people get tummy tucks

Fat people get tummy tucks all the time. The fact that her arms and breasts are the same size, but her waist is drastically smaller is a giveaway that it wasn't exercise.

Good for her, another 30 lbs

Good for her, another 30 lbs and that will be good. I don't think skinny works for Jill, but she will be healthy and have the energy she's looking for. She'll also look better in her clothes!

I've cut carbs and been

I've cut carbs and been working out and in only 3 weeks, I've lost about 12 pounds. I don't have as much to lose as Jill did (I have 13 to go) but I don't see why people think folks can't lose weight naturally, especially over the length of time she's talking about. Damn! It's not like her weight loss was dramatic and over a 6 month period. Some folks are just full of negativity and jealousy.

I agree, it’s not hard to lose weight. The challenge comes in keeping it off. I’ve been struggling with it or years now.

I guess massive weight loss and promoting new projects go hand-in-hand as a publicity tool these days (Raven Simone, Jennifer Hudson, Jill.) Le sigh...

WOW, yes ma'am, if that

WOW, yes ma'am, if that really is Jill (it looks like her) in the video, then yes she did use to be very thin...not a stick figure, but thin! I'm glad she's loosing weight. She's looks much better & healthier...and why would anyone want to keep and extra 30-40 lbs of baby weight on them any way.... GOOD JOB JILL, KEEP IT UP!

No surgery. They are all

No surgery. They are all taking something prescription.Not just them. All of Hollywood and the black actresses just got in on it. How would Jill Scott, Ledisi, Rayven Symone, Temptest Bledsoe, Kimora Simmons, Jordin Sparks, Jennifer Hudson ALL have life long weight problems and coincidently ALL lose more than 40+ lbs average at the same time???? Come on now people, use common sense. Whatever it is, it is expensive and will take a while to get on the market like phen phen did. Not surgery, this is prescription medication and they need to STOP LYING talking about they lost this weight from the gym......if that's the case why hadnt they lost it before?
Anonymous's picture

Well Jill was smaller before

Well Jill was smaller before she had Jett...Why is Kimora in that? She was never big...anyway, some people are actually losing weight by changing their eating habits and exercising. Jilly didn't just come out after two months. She hasn't been in the spotlight for awhile. Raven and Jordin, definitely took something or just ate less and exercised more. Whatever...they were never that big anyway.

Just because YOU lack self

Just because YOU lack self control and discipline. Doesn't mean no one else can't lose weight with healthy food and CONSISTENT exercise. you can't eat like cow and look like a dove C'mon use common sense. Certain foods are for fat people. Pizza, cheetos, fried chicken, no one with a healthy body eat those food outside a special occasion. THERE IS NO MAGIC PILL!!!!!!!!

One minute, a person is too

One minute, a person is too fat. Then, a person is too thin and they're thin because of surgery. PEOPLE PLEASE!!! To all of you haters who've suggested surgery, you're probably in the 200 POUND PLUS RANGE!!! Just because you can't lose weight, don't think everyone can't lose weight. I gained almost 100 pounds when I was pregnant w/ my daughter and after deliverying her, I had freakin 65 pounds to lose after!!! I lost the weight (it wasn't easy) and DID NOT have surgery to do so!!! I was determined to get back into my FABULOUS clothes, and with my taste, couldn't afford to purchase an entire wardrobe all over again - and there you go!!! Like the phrase goes - IF THERE'S A WILL - THERE'S A WAY! :-)

Good for you Happy Lady. You

Good for you Happy Lady. You are not a celebrity, nor rich but you did it just like they did. Stories like yours need to be told, because so many ppl are under the false impression that you need a dietitian, cook, personal trainer, and loads of money to lose weight. You are a living testimony that the everyday, average woman can lose weight by her sheer will. Keep enjoying your fabulous clothes and walking the sidewalk as your own personal catwalk. Cheers!

I lost weight by joining

I lost weight by joining Weight Watchers and I work out 5 days a week for only 30 mins. each session. Occasionally on the weekends, I'll work out for 45 mins., but that's all, but I make sure to work out hard enough to break a sweat. It's all about being consistent and nutrition is about 75-80% / exercise is about 20-25%.

Ayo, this is why my man

Ayo, this is why my man "Letgetitt" stays snapping off on y'all. Look at the negativity that is drawn off of a post that is supposed to be positive. It's impossible for us to have good results without the knife huh? Well, I have news for you; I'm a trainer and I've seen people lose weight at rapid rates THE RIGHT WAY. So it is possible; pending your determination, strong will, and consistency. Stop being haters. Get on the healthy bandwagon and do something extraordinary yourselves.

I love Jill Scott and I think

I love Jill Scott and I think she looks awesome, I just find it very interesting how these "larger" women always use terms like "broom stick" or "stick figure" to describe smaller women. That is offensive. Let a slim woman describe a "larger" woman as a line backer or elephant and see if people arent up in arms about it. Anywho Im disappointed in her new album. I will continue to play out Beautifully Human Words and Sounds vol. 2 because that is a classic album. This new one just isn't doing it for me.

I agree with you. Why is it

I agree with you. Why is it that fat black women have a problem with skinny chicks?????? Like it is sooo against nature to be black and skinny. I agree..... Cut the ishhhhh!
Bronze Duchess's picture

Not for nothin' but she

Not for nothin' but she didn't say, "I'll never be a stick figure" to describe other women... Honestly, when I read it, I thought about a literal stick figure drawing. Kinda like when people say, "He/she is as big as a house." They're not talking about another person per se - they're just using the object descriptively. I also truely believe that's what Trina was doing also in the other post... I don't think it was intended to insult anyone at all. She was talking about herself, IMO.

Damn, a black woma just

Damn, a black woma just cannot lose weight before black women start with the conspiracies on how they lost weight. I can gurantee some black woman will say Jill looks better with the 63lbs on like many black women say Jennifer Hudson, and Raben-Symone look better fat.

Jill looks good. 63lbs in two years is like .5lbs per week. That pace of weight loss would have driven me crazy! The best quotes from Beyonce's documentary last night: www.msjamerica.com
