It’s amazing what 35 pounds of fat loss will do for your health and even how you look. Check out Raven-Symoné’s before and after picture, and find out how she lost the extra weight.
Be Confident…No Matter What Size You are
One of the thing that I love about Raven-Symoné is that she has always been very confident about herself. Check out here quote from Vibe Magazine:
“I find it funny that people now come up to me and say, ‘Wow, you are absolutely gorgeous. I’m like, ‘I was beautiful before I lost weight. Egotistically speaking, I thought I was amazing.’” -Raven-Symoné
Let’s face it, carrying excess fat isn’t doing anything good for your health. It’s also not the most attractive thing either (Hey, I’d be lying if I said excess fat looked good on you). I think everyone owes it to themselves to be a healthy weight -not too big, not too thin- but I still think that no matter what size you are, weight shouldn’t be a deciding factor of how others treat you or how beauty is defined. Something I am deeply grateful for, is that I was always reminded that beauty comes from within. As cheesy as it sounds, I know how true this statement really is.
How Do You Handle Stress?
“I stopped stressing. You have to realize at 15, there was a whole entire show I had on my shoulders. It was a very big cast and crew and if you’re sick for a day, people lose money and that’s a problem,” she said at the time. “[It wasn't] just over eating because I’ve actually been eating the same. I keep a little bit more smaller portions because I learned that your body has to get rid of that stress some way. Some people break-out, some people lose their hair, some lose weight, some people gain weight, my body just reacted a certain kind of way.” -Raven-Symoné
Here’s a video clip from the Wendy Williams show when she interviewed Raven-Symoné and asked about her weight loss.
