How you doin’ Wendy?

From the looks of it the New Jersey Talk Show Host is doing pretty well. She is turning 50 in just a few weeks and has lost over 30 lbs!  Usually known for her opinions on all the latest celebrity gossip, Wendy is not one to bite her tongue. But in celebration of her upcoming birthday, she presses the pause button on the celeb talk, and dishes on some more serious matters; getting older and her desire to live a healthier lifestyle.

 

See what she had to say from an excerpt from Parades Mind your body column;

 

Wendy, how do you Mind Your Body with what you eat?
I turn 50 on July 18, and I feel fabulous. When I was 25, 50 seemed so old, but I wouldn’t trade 50 for 25, 35, or 45. Life is good! I lost 30 pounds in preparation for 50 and took two years to do it. I haven’t been this light on my feet since ninth grade. I’m making little changes in life and going to the gym consistently twice a week. I hate the gym, love food, eat a lot of protein, but don’t deny any food. Yesterday I had a big steak salad that was mouth-watering. Today, I started with eggs. For lunch I had steamed vegetables from last night’s Chinese food order. I’m obsessed with ranch dressing powder and I sprinkle it on eggs, hot popcorn, and those steamed vegetables. I’m also a calorie counter and take a lot of time shopping at the grocery store, reading labels.

 

What about your physical activity?
I do a one-hour session twice weekly that incorporates weights and Pilates. My goal at 50 is not to gain muscle, but raise heart rate. And I don’t want to slump as I get older.

 

What could you do better for yourself?
To add a third day of activity, I could walk in my beautiful neighborhood, but I don’t. I could also do better with my candy intake, but I’m like a kid. And it’s odd, because I’m not a dessert person really. But I like Jolly Ranchers, three or four of them at a time, and I like bubble gum when I could chew dainty Dentyne. I do brush my teeth twice a day.

 

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned about health so far?
It has to be to drink a lot of water, because it’s good for your body and makes your skin gorgeous. Your skin is the first thing people see. Always wash makeup off and moisturize, and you don’t need to spend $200 on a moisturizer. Good skin doesn’t have to be expensive!

 

Wendy is always keeping it real! Looking great girl!

 

What do you think of Wendy’s weight loss? Can you tell the difference?

Amber Rose Weighed In At 202 Pounds While Pregnant

Kim Kardashian isn’t the only celebrity who gained a lot of weight during pregnancy.

Amber Rose recently admitted she weighed in at 202 pounds while pregnant with her rapper boo Wiz Khalifa’s son Sebastian.

Determined to get her pre-baby body back, Amber Rose is working hard with a trainer. Finding time away from being a busy mommy and girlfriend, she works out every day for an hour and a half. So far it’s paying off, shedding thirty pounds since giving birth;

“I have a really good personal trainer. Her name is Jeanette Jenkins. Yeah, I work out every day. It’s hard to get off baby weight. It’s a different kind of weight because for nine months you stretch your stomach out and then it’s hard to get that back. I’m working on it. I lost like thirty-some pounds already. I was 202 pounds when I had my son. But I’m tall, so it didn’t look like it.”

Standing at 5 feet 9 inches, Rose before having her baby weighed 148 pounds. If she was 202 pounds during her pregnancy, and dropped 30 pounds since, that means she’s now 172 pounds. Your are almost there Amber! Keep up the good work.
