Raven-Symone Drops 70 Pounds After Taking Time Out of the Spotlight

Raven-Symone is no stranger to the spotlight. She started acting at a very young age as a child star on The Cosby Show. As she grew up, she also landed her own TV show titled That’s So Raven which was a huge success.

The curvaceous Raven-Symone has always encouraged others to be comfortable in their own skin, no matter what their size. That is a motto that she has lived and continues to live daily. Now Raven-Symone is not only comfortable in her skin, she’s also comfortable in her clothes.

The star has recently dropped 70 pounds from her frame. “It’s great to put on clothes and not wear a girdle,” she says. She started focusing on her health after deciding to take some time off from the spotlight in 2007.

To drop the weight, Raven-Symone started exercising and making big changes to her eating habits. She worked out at least four times per week, including time on the elliptical machine during her sessions. For her diet, she traded in cupcakes and other unhealthy foods for oatmeal and apple slices for breakfast along with salmon and steamed asparagus for dinner.

Although she gets compliments from people telling her how pretty she looks now, her response is a solid, “But I was pretty before.” This response simply rings true to what Raven-Symone has always said about body image. Even though she is sporting a new body, she remains true in her message to fans. “Whether or not I’m this size, I always preached, ‘Be comfortable with yourself,’ and I will preach it forever.”

I wish she would motivate some of those folks on metro; the sits are not one size fit all.

The MDV area Obesity rate is out of control; sitting there minding your business this all of a sudden you are up against the window with someone butt all up on you. Respect folks!

What the was a 24 year old woman wearing a girdle for in the first place? Anyway, she'll see that her life will be better for it. She'll live longer and considering that she's light skinned, which makes her safe for the Anglo-Saxon, she'll get more roles
