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!
