MEET the new slim, trim Mariah Carey. Sheâ€™s ship-shaped up and serving her secrets for us to ogle. In fact, the songstress says sheâ€™s so svelte she can fit into clothes she wore back in the day.
Gagging to know how she got slim? Usmagazine.com reveals that chatting to Oprah Winfrey she said: â€œMy jean size went down to my tenth-grade size.â€
â€œI got tired to people telling me, â€˜You need to lose weight.â€™ It inspired me.â€ She went on to say: â€œFor me, itâ€™s not about a number on a scale. Itâ€™s not about necessarily even a size. Itâ€™s about feeling good and being comfortable in your own skin. Right now, I feel really great. I feel better than Iâ€™ve ever felt.â€
OK, OK, weâ€™re getting to how she did it. She told Oprah that with the help of a diet and nutrition expert sheâ€™s been on a strict eating plan, that limits foods cooked in butter. So, she had to give up her fave food â€” a cheesy Big Mac.
She said: â€œIt broke my heart. Thatâ€™s the thing that I have difficulty letting go of because thatâ€™s comfort food. So basically Iâ€™m uncomfortable.â€ In an interview with Allure, she also spoke about her personal trainer, saying: â€œThis trainer has actually helped me reshape my arms.
â€œThatâ€™s where I gained most of my weight â€” upper body. Thatâ€™s just one thing you have to lose weight for.â€ Right, with a huff and a puff weâ€™re off to hit the gym. â€” Ananova.
