Linda’s latest weightloss vow
Her sensational slim-down has been turning heads for months, so no one was more surprised than best when we heard...
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!’
