CLAIRE Richards has unveiled her new slimmed-down figure – and she has never looked better. The Steps singer recently revealed that she was a size 10, which is a huge transformation from just 2 years ago, when the pretty blonde weighed almost 15 stone and wore a size 20. The mum of 2 recently left Lorraine viewers stunned when she showed off her incredible weight loss, as well as a shorter hair do. She has recently dropped from a size 20 to size 8 and has vowed to keep the weight off for good.
Labelling herself a yo-yo dieter, the 38 year old has always spoken openly about her issues with food and keeping the weight off. “I pretty much didn’t leave my house for four years,” she previously revealed. “I just started eating and got fatter and fatter and fatter and then started going on a diet and lost loads of weight, then put it back on again. Claire entered the CBB house as a curvy size 20, but seemed more body confident than ever.
However, just months later she unveiled a size 16 figure and insisted that she was no longer interested in yo-yo dieting – admitting that she was more than happy with her figure now. Speaking at the time, she told the Daily Mirror: “I’ve been on so many diets over the years and I’ve realised that all that it does is make you obsessed with food. I’ll never do a diet again. I eat anything and everything but I am just careful with my portion size. The 36-year-old slimmed back down to a healthy size 12, losing a whopping six stone in just nine months.
She put her weight loss down to wanting to conceive another child with husband Reece. Speaking on Loose Women, she said: “I’m not bringing out a fitness DVD, I’m not doing some miracle diet, I don’t have the secret to weight loss and staying slim. “This time there is a personal reason [for my weight loss] and it is something extremely personal to me but my husband Reece and I – we decided that we want to try for another baby and me being overweight was causing us a lot of problems.
“So I went to see the doctor and he advised that I lose weight. So that is the one and only reason why I have done it this time.” Claire, who has kept a relatively low profile since her CBB stint, is back with a vengeance. She recently shared a snap of her new look, including a shorter hairdo, with Instagram followers, showing that she has managed to keep the weight off. And she addressed her slimmer figure, as well as her yo-yo dieting, during an interview with Bella Magazine. She revealed: “I hope I’ve broken the cycle but I think I’ve learned my lesson by saying: “This time it’s for good”. Portion sizes have always been my downfall.”
