Caroline Manzo Talks 20-Pound Weight Loss

Caroline Manzo recently lost nearly 20 pounds, and in a new blog entry, the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star opened up about how she shed the weight.

“Hey, guys! We’re at the home stretch of our challenge, and I’m feeling pretty good about it. I think I may break the 20-pound loss mark, and for me standing at a full 5’1″, that’s a lot of weight!” Manzo wrote in her Women’s Day blog, according to a January 30 report by AllAboutTRH.

“My husband and I took a quick trip to Florida last week and for the first time I didn’t feel like I was challenged in my meal choices and food intake while eating out. Eating healthy has officially become a way of life, and I like it. I’ve developed the habit of eating something every three hours, starting with breakfast (a meal I never ate) within an hour-and-a-half of waking each morning. I also stopped drinking coffee altogether; it has been replaced with hot water and fresh lemon each morning as well as right before bed. If I get the urge for something different, I opt for green tea. As for cold drinks, it’s pretty much the same: water or iced green tea.”

In addition to her weight loss, Caroline Manzo is excited about her recent energy boost.

“It’s nice to feel my energy level grow and notice the changes in my body. It’s been a slow process, but steady, which is key. I’ve got a few more pounds to lose, but I feel like I finally have created a routine that allows me to do so without feeling the pressure of ‘dieting.’ I prefer to say that I’ve changed my lifestyle. I’m not dieting; I’m doing what’s best for my body, and that can never be a bad thing.”

As the Inquisitr reported earlier this week, Caroline Manzo’s daughter, Lauren, could be in the running for a spot on The Real Housewives of New Jersey season seven.

On January 26, a source revealed the following to Real Mr. Housewife:

“Lauren is getting married this year. Once that is done, she is definitely being considered to be a Real Housewife of New Jersey.”

“She has what it takes to do this. Remember the reunion where she went off on Teresa? It was clear at that point Lauren is not afraid of confrontation and will bring the drama when she needs to. She also has the looks. Lauren was always beautiful, but now that she has lost so much weight and looks better than ever, she definitely would fit the mold.”

Caroline Manzo returns for Manzo’d With Children later this year on Bravo.
