Celebrity chef and television star Ree Drummond has finally started to open about her weight loss journey. Now, fans know how she lost 43 pounds in one year - and she hopes to inspire others to live a more healthy life!
Ree Drummond Changes Her Life
Its no easy thing, to lose weight. However, celebrity chef Ree Drummond, better known by her TV personality The Pioneer Woman, has already lost a whopping 43 pounds this year. As fans were incredibly curious how she did it, Drummond made a post about her changing figure. The 52-year-old stated that she hopes her story can inspire the others to live healthier lives as well! She started the post off by saying that what worked for her, might not work for everyone else. Next, Drummond reminded everyone that they should also consult with their physician.
Then, The Pioneer Women dived into her personal story. After gaining "considerable weight over the past three years,” and hitting “rock bottom,” she decided to make a change. Surprisingly, Drummond didn't try any fad diet, like the Keto diet or anything like that. Instead, she simply minimized her calorie intake! Additionally, she also started exercising every day, building muscle, eating more protein, and consuming less sugar and alcohol. Drummond even started using a standing desk while at work!
Of course, as an incredibly busy woman Drummond understands that its hard to fit in a workout every single day. So, she also offered some tips to her fellow busy people...
Her Weight Loss Plan
How did Drummond manage to sneak exercising into her schedule? “I’d gotten so accustomed to excusing myself from working out because of my work schedule or travel schedule,” she said. “But during the past few months, I just chose to be late on deadline or put off work until the next day so that exercise could happen. It was a simple shift in mindset, but it was important!”
Drummond also understands that its hard to cut down on your calories - especially given how much the celebrity chef loves food! So, she needed to set up some boundaries. "I'm The Pioneer Woman and I love food! But the piece of cake was the size of Rhode Island instead of Texas, and it wasn't an everyday thing,” she explained.
While she may have lost nearly 50 pounds, the number on the scale isn't what matters to Drummond. She says its all about feeling happy and healthy! "I'll keep weighing in every day to have all the information I need going forward, but the number isn't what I'm paying attention to now,” The Pinoeer Woman wrote on her website. “I still love food, I still cook the same food for my family and me, and I'm a real person who realizes I'm always going to be prone to weigh-in ups and downs...But my experience over the past few months have equipped me with real, doable tolls that I feel like I'll be able to whip out whenever things get off track in the coming months and years.”
