From Now Magazine:
She was the poster girl for the bigger woman way before Adele came on the scene. But it seems even Beth Ditto’s succumbed to the pressure to be skinnier – just like every BTB (that’s bride-to-be).
Nutritionist and celebrity fitness expert Nicki Waterman estimates she’s lost a staggering 4st and dropped five dress sizes, going from a 28 to an 18.
In the past, Beth’s spoken about being insecure over her body.
‘I’m not pleased with my looks, especially my weight – I’m 5ft 2in, but I weigh 17st 2lb,’ she said. ‘I was able to defend myself by joking around. ‘But sometimes it’s been painful and hurt my feelings. ‘I didn’t let it show. I was always cheerful. That’s the way we fat people are – if we’re not grinning all the time, we’d probably be totally frustrated.’
After being the target of a lot of criticism regarding her weight gain last year, Christina Aguilera is back to her slimmer days again. Here she is at the Billboard Awards this weekend, rocking the stage in a little black dress that shows off her slimmer figure.
