Loni Love has been looking quite snatched as of late, and for good reason. The 46-year-old The Real co-host has been on a weight-loss journey for some time now, and as she revealed to fans a few days ago, she’s been successful. She quietly shed 30 pounds, and that’s no easy feat.
She’s been showing off her hard work in a number of very cute looks on the show, but decided to compare her 2018 Daytime Emmy look to her 2017 one to give everyone a better glimpse at how far she’s come.
“2017 Emmy and 2018 Emmy… 30 lbs difference,” she wrote as a caption to the side-by-side picture. “I will continue to take my time and focus on my health .. .. here is to 2019 and working on losing another 30!!!!”
And while she didn’t go into detail about how she lost the weight with the side-by-side photo, she did say on the show back in November, during a conversation about Kate Winslet claiming she hadn’t been on the scale in years, that keeping up with her weight and paying attention to what she should and shouldn’t consume, were making a big difference.
“I used to not weigh myself,” she said. “And then I’ve lost some weight and I started weighing myself. I have a long way to go. I’m going to tell you, I was like her. ‘Oh I don’t want to get on the scale.’ But getting on the scale for me is actually motivating because you start to learn your body. And you start to see what you can eat and what you can’t eat. Maybe if you drink you see the difference. If you go out on a night and you drink and then you weigh yourself in the morning, you’ve added on two, three pounds. So for me, I think it’s important, especially if you really are trying to lose weight, to stay on the scale and make that part of your weight-loss plan. It’s very, very important and I know it’s helped me. And I think as you get older, too, it’s important to pay attention to your weight, because you don’t see a lot of fat, old people.”
As she said, she still has “a long way to go.” We all do, as everyone is a work in progress. However, she should give herself some credit. Love’s been killing it. Check out a few pics of her dressed to the nines and looking leaner than ever.
