Lily Allen Attributes Weight Loss to Her Good Mood

British pop star Lily Allen credited hypnosis as the key to losing about four dress sizes back in 2007, and she recently said that her own mood has played a big part in getting healthy. Not only has her general state of happiness helped her resist reaching for comfort food; it has influenced her to stop drinking too much.

Lily commented, "The only reason I have lost weight is because I comfort eat when I'm not very happy. The last two years, even though I had a lot of success with my first record, I was . . . getting so drunk."

I'm happy to see that Lily has embraced healthier habits and is a happier person overall. Hopefully she can learn to rely on things that make her feel good, like chatting with an old friend or going for a walk, instead of turning to junk food and alcohol when tough times do come around.

Exactly, she doesn't seem like a avery happy girl. This coincides with the release of her new album, so I suspect she may have felt pressure to lose weight.

what about her love of drugs? I questions her healthy and happiness. There has been a lot of bad press out there lately (most by Ms. Allen herself)... and she recently said she started drinking again b/c she can't go on stage sober. oh the troubling life of being famous.
