Reality star and singer Traci Braxton discussed her 64-pound weight loss Monday on “NewsOne Now” with Roland Martin. She credits her fit figure to working out three times a week. As a diabetic, she focused on maintaining a healthy diet.
Losing weight isn’t easy, of course, but a good look in the mirror was all it took for Braxton to get motivated.
“I didn’t have my mind right,” she says. “I was upset with myself because I was gaining the weight, and I didn’t really feel as sexy as I wanted to feel, and I didn’t give my family my all.”
Braxton also stresses that diet pills are not the way to go, and that it’s best to consult a physician before pill popping. “You have to go to the doctor because me being borderline diabetic now and I have to take medication,” she says. “I could kill myself. You can actually kill yourself taking these medications because it [diet pills] doesn’t mix with your medication.”
