How Jordin Sparks Lost Weight

Jordin Sparks Walks the Carpet 50 Pounds Lighter at Sparkle Premiere

Jordin Sparks was all smiles in NYC on Tuesday, and for good reason: not only was she celebrating the premiere of her new film, Sparkle, but also, she looked stunning in her red Alice + Olivia dress. Jordin, 22, recently gave her life a healthy makeover, and her efforts resulted in an impressive 50-pound weight loss!

To lose the weight, Jordin mixed up her fitness routine with running, boxing, and Zumba. (She even takes her mom to her Zumba classes, which are taught by a family friend.) And because exercise alone won't do the trick, Jordin gave her diet a complete overhaul. Most importantly, she gave herself time, beginning her weight-loss journey almost two years ago. Jordin recently told Redbook, "My whole journey has been about self-acceptance. There's no quick or magical way to lose weight. You just have to do it the natural way — diet and exercise and stick to it — and be able to do it at your own pace. Everyone has their own thing."
