Kelly Price Shows Off New Slim, Trimmed Figure
Kelly Price’s weight has been a topic of conversation for most of her career. She has said on more than one occasion that despite having a powerhouse voice, she remained behind the scenes during her early days in entertainment because of her size. The singer was even in the process of putting together a reality show a few years ago called Too Fat For Fame to help other women who may have been held back in varying industries due to people telling them they are too big. According to the star, despite a wealth of success, she’s still told such things in the music biz.
“So even though I have had a level of success, even though people know that I am more than capable of getting the job done, I still hear that I am too fat.”
So over the years, Price has worked to shed some pounds, but has gone back and forth in size due to the stresses of life. We told you in January that after the loss of her sister, Price gained a large amount of weight back. She took to Instagram to say that after confronting that pain and depression, she was working to make necessary changes in her life to get the weight off and finally keep it off for good:
Sometimes you gotta lose to win. Sometimes you gotta gain to lose. This is hard to post and hard to look at. I lost my sister in 2014 and was depressed and didn't want to acknowledge it but it showed up on my body and I packed on weight that I hadn't carried in years. I lost focus, lost perspective and gained bad habits and extra pounds. I looked up exactly one year later after she died and the photo on the left was what I looked like. This was me in April of this year on stage in Chicago. I told my audience I'd lost my way but I was getting ready to change my life. I recommitted myself to LIVE and to take care of and respect the temple God gave me. The battle is everyday and it's not easy but I'm doing it. Slow and steady with real life choices that I can follow for the rest of my life. The photo on the right is me today behind the scenes at my Photoshoot with @mrdblanks. I'm excited about what my life is taking shape to look like physically, spiritually, emotionally and mentally! #ItsMyTime
Based on a new image the singer posted to Instagram this week, it’s clear that Price’s hard work is paying off:
Fans applauded her new look by saying everything from “You look beautiful” to “Holy moly! U look magical” in the comments.
As she said, I don’t think ya ready for this Kelly. Keep up the great work!
