Weight Loss

Now this isn't about my weight loss, because I haven't lost any weight recently, but this post is actually about Raven Symone!  I will admit I have watched That's so Raven before, I'm not going to lie!

Anyway, I'm obviously a bit behind here, but I recently saw Raven Symone, not in real life, of course, in a magazine, and she looked so different!!  It was shocking!  So I did some research and found some pictures to share with you!  I guess she debuted her new look during the spring, and I just must have missed it.

From what I've gathered she's lost about 80 some pounds, so it's really a drastic change! 


She looks so different, right??

I know this image above is pretty dark, I couldn't find a brighter one, 
but I wanted to share it because I love those sparkly shorts and heels! 
She looks fabulous!!  

What she says about her weight loss:
"I thought I looked fabulous before and nobody else did," she told PEOPLE. "So, whatever."

says she's breathing a sigh of relief over no longer having to deal with her show (That's So Raven) – the strain of which, she says, contributed to her weight gain. (from People mag)

"That's what stress does to you," Symoné says. "I've been not stressing. I've been in my own house, decorating and finding hobbies."

'I liked it before. Now, you're just looking at me for the wrong reasons. Before, you were actually looking at me for a real reason.' 

From Vibe magazine:
On reactions to her weight loss
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’

On why she keeps it PG 13
It’s not so much about showing my sexy side because of the kids, I have to answer to my mama and brother, my dad and my grandparents, the ones I have to look in the eyes every day when I take my weave and eyelashes out.

I'm really impressed with her weight loss!  I think she looks fabulous, and I also think she has her head on straight!  It's nice to see that she thought she was beautiful before, and doesn't have a "I have to be stick thin complex"!  What do you girls thing about her new look??
She has a new tv show called "The Great State of Georgia" that just recently premiered on ABC Family.  
I've not seen it, but I've been hearing really good things about it!

Wow! I knew she lost weight but I didn't realize she'd lost that much! She kind of looks like Nicole Richie in some shots.

80 lbs though, just from not stressing? I find that hard to believe. I'm sure she's been eating healthy and working her butt off - literally hehe!

She looks amazing and seems to be handling it well. I'm happy she explains it that way!

She does look amazing! But I'm glad she felt confident before, because she was never an obese woman.

I always thought she looked beautiful. But she is probably more healthy now, which is a really good thing. :) I liked her quote about taking out her weave and false lashes.
