I’ve been a fan of Jordin Sparks since I was first introduced to her on American Idol. Not only was I a fan of her vocals, but I always thought she was a beautiful girl with awesome style even before she lost the 50 lbs. How gorgeous is this Shape cover photo of her showing off her new bikini body on the issue’s cover?! You go, girl!
I joined a local gym last summer and felt intimidated by all of the women in their forties that were so much more flexible than I was. It would have been so much easier to just give up, but instead I tried out a few classes until I ultimately fell in love with Zumba. It’s not easy for everyone to feel confident and proud in the bathing suit Jordin is rocking with a smile on her face, especially someone like her who has been in the limelight and criticized for her weight. It’s inspiring to see just what diet and exercise can do once you put your mind to it, and I’m proud of Jordin for never giving up.
“For me to even be talking about bikini confidence is crazy. If you had asked me a couple of months ago, I probably would have been like, ‘What are you talking about?’ So it’s actually huge for me to even feel OK with putting a bikini on,” she said.
Who else thinks Jordin looks amazing on this Shape cover? What’s your weight loss success story?
