Linda’s lat­est weight-loss vow

For years, she wished she were slim­mer. But af­ter fi­nally drop­ping over 2½st, one of our favourite Loose Ladies told us she is ac­tu­ally try­ing to put weight on th­ese days!

Look­ing sen­sa­tional in a fig­ure-hug­ging navy dress by de­signer Gina Bac­coni, Linda Robson told best at ITV’s Palooza gala that she feels she may need to slow down on the weight-loss, ad­mit­ting, ‘I don’t want to lose any more.’

The 60-year-old gran has come a long way since set­ting out on her weight-loss jour­ney, drop­ping an in­cred­i­ble four dress sizes due to a com­bi­na­tion of healthy eat­ing, cut­ting down on booze and sugar and hav­ing reg­u­lar gym ses­sions. Linda con­fesses she’s now so slim that she’s ‘ac­tu­ally try­ing to put on weight’ and has started hap­pily din­ing out at Pizza Ex­press!

The ac­tress’s in­cred­i­ble life­style change be­gan over a year ago, when her chil­dren started voic­ing their con­cerns that Linda’s health was be­ing af­fected by her drink­ing habits. Claim­ing it was ‘dif­fi­cult’ to go al­co­hol and sugar-free in the be­gin­ning as she was ‘drink­ing a bot­tle of wine a night’, Linda ad­mit­ted that go­ing cold tur­key with drink left her feel­ing like ‘a heroin ad­dict’.

Amaz­ingly, it was an episode of Loose Women that would change the mum-of-three’s life for ever. It was ex­plained to Linda on the ITV show that the amount of wine she drank in a month was equal in sugar con­tent to 100 dough­nuts. The bub­bly blonde couldn’t hide her shock, say­ing, ‘Oh my God! That’s a month’s worth of wine? I don’t even eat any­thing sweet at all!’

Look­ing at Linda now, a pe­tite size 10/12 and rightly proud of her body, it’s hard to be­lieve she was once putting away a bot­tle of vino ev­ery day and car­ry­ing over 35 ex­tra pounds.

Pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ting, ‘I spent all my life around swim­ming pools cov­er­ing up, wear­ing a sarong’, we’re just thrilled to see Linda look­ing so stun­ning and con­fi­dent in her own skin. She’s just glow­ing – and she’s ditched the sarongs!

The down-to-earth TV star, who now does yoga reg­u­larly to stay trim, has proved that, when you set your mind to it, any­thing is pos­si­ble.

Keep in­spir­ing us, Linda – es­pe­cially with an eat­ing plan that in­volves din­ing at Pizza Ex­press ev­ery now and then! We’re up for that…

‘I spent all my life around swim­ming pools cov­er­ing up wear­ing a sarong – not any more!’

Wow! Linda looks sen­sa­tional af­ter drop­ping four dress sizes
