Ex Emmerdale actress Lisa Riley has recently revealed her weight loss results, after losing a dramatic 6 stone in just 10 months, going from a size 30 to a size 16.
So how has the 39 year old actress managed to achieve these incredible weight loss results?
What has motivated Lisa Riley to lose weight?
Speaking to Bella magazine, Lisa revealed that her motivation to lose weight was that she did not want to become another statistic, after losing her mum and seeing her father being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
“Losing my mum then seeing my dad wired up and nearly losing him and becoming an orphan was a shock to my system.”
“I don’t want to be a statistic. I just want my health to carry on, to live my life to the fullest.”
How has she achieved this weight loss?
Although this is not the first time that Lisa Riley has lost weight, she famously appeared on the popular BBC show Strictly Come Dancing back in 2012, her new weight loss results have come not because of a particular diet but due to a ‘lifestyle change’.
“I’m not on a diet – diets don’t work. It’s been about awareness and lifestyle. I’m loads more active than I used to be.”
The first step was to give up alcohol:
“I’ve not drunk alcohol for a long time now. I pat myself on the back every day that not one drop of alcohol has passed my lips and I don’t think it ever will again.”
She has also started to eat healthier, and has become much more active, with Zumba, walking and yoga all becoming a staple of her everyday life.
No doubt Lisa looks and feels healthier, hopefully she will be able to keep the weight off long-term, good luck!
