And she utilized the time to really focus on her health which allowed her to shed nearly 70 pounds, telling Shape that turning 40 and the desire to start a family made her take things seriously.
‘Until this past year I never properly considered wellness from all angles. But I was turning 40 and thinking about freezing my eggs and the experts told me that the healthier I am, the better the process can go.’
‘I get a little emotional when I ask myself why I didn’t care about my health before this. It just wasn’t a priority, and I didn’t know how to do it right.’

Year of health: During her time off she made exercise and diet modifications which allowed her to shed the pounds
Once sharing that she was consuming up to 3,000 calories a day of basically all carbs, she credit a high-protein diet with making her feel fuller and helping her achieve her weight loss.
‘I think I was emotional eating, and overeating at times, because I wasn’t loving myself enough either. And it does come down to that self-worth and self-love,’ she told People.
And she has also credited ‘moderate walking,’ as one of the keys to her success saying it was ‘the best way for [her] to lose unnecessary body fat.’
She had previously shared that her target weight was around 165 pounds which she’s now achieved, but she said that number was just a ‘tangible thing’ to keep her motivated and her ‘goal was never to be skinny.’
Diet changes: She has credited ‘moderate walking’ and eating protein-rich foods as the keys to her success but she has also had help from a personal trainer and dieticians
