Raven-Symoné Weight Loss!
Raven-Symoné, 25, from the successful Disney Channel's show That's So Raven; has lost 35 pounds and has literally become unrecognizable. But in a good way! We will definitely be seeing a much slimmed down version of her in the upcoming ABC's comedy series State of Georgia.
Raven-Symoné finds the attention that she is receiving now because of her weight loss, a little amusing. That is because; this Dr. Doolittle actress has always felt beautiful in all the sizes that she has ever been in. In 2008, she said, “My conflict in life is just making sure that I remember that I'm beautiful just the way I am, no matter what size I am. I'm thick and fabulous! I don't care how many hater sites are out there. I'm absolutely fabulous.” But in one of her very recent interviews, Raven-Symoné said, “I find it funny that people now come up to me and say, ‘Wow, you are absolutely gorgeous. I’m like, ‘I was beautiful before I lost weight. Egotistically speaking, I thought I was amazing.”
So if Symoné, who also goes by just Raven, loved her body in whatever shape that it was in; then why did she lose the weight? When the talk show host Wendy Williams asked her how and why, she replied saying, “I stopped stressing. You have to realize at 15, there was a whole entire show I had on my shoulders. It was a very big cast and crew and if you’re sick for a day, people lose money and that’s a problem,” she said at the time. “[It wasn't] just over eating because I’ve actually been eating the same. I keep a little bit more smaller portions because I learned that your body has to get rid of that stress some way. Some people break-out, some people lose their hair, some lose weight, some people gain weight, my body just reacted a certain kind of way.”
As for me, I don't think that she is lying about her weight loss like how many celebrities do. People do gain or lose weight when they remove the stress from their lives. When Raven-Symoné stopped stressing, her body dropped 'em pounds!
Cheers and atta girl Raven!
