How did Kelly Rowland lose 70 pounds in just four months? The singer shared the answer to her weight loss success in an interview with Extra.
After having a baby boy named Titan in November, Kelly is turning heads every time she appears on the red carpet with her husband Tim Witherspoon. So just how did she restore her pre-baby body so quickly? Rowland reasoned out the real source of her weight gain, she said.
While Kelly feels that it’s all right to enjoy an occasional indulgence, she calculated a way to literally have her cake (or margarita) and lose weight too.
“The 80/20 rule is all the way real, eighty percent of the time you eat those foods giving you nourishment, you’re eating clean, and twenty percent of the time, have guacamole, a ton of it like I do, and a margarita and maybe queso too!”
In addition, Rowland has a secret weapon. And that’s celebrity trainer Jeanette Jenkins. Combined with the popular spinning class SoulCycle, Kelly contends that taking off 70 pounds proved possible.
“Jeanette Jenkins is the secret, SoulCycle is the secret,” summed up Kelly.
Even working out early became fun because of Jeanette’s enthusiasm.
“When I go in there and it’s the wee hours of the morning she is a great secret, so motivational. Jeanette comes in with so much energy and this huge smile on her face and you can’t help but to get excited about working out.”
Kelly’s also excited about becoming a mom and thrilled by her son.
“I think the best part of being a mom, actually it’s being Titan’s mom, Titan is a pretty incredible kid,” she declared proudly.
She revealed that her husband decided on the name.
“I told him if I have to do the rest of the work he has to name him and give him a fly name,” she laughed.
So will the singer ever unite with her Destiny’s Child friends for a reunion? Only informally, she said.
“The last reunion happened the other day when we all sat down and were just talking and enjoying each other’s company, it was awesome, not every time you see Destiny’s Child together may be in front of the camera, we still have our bond amongst each other, that’s the most beautiful gift Destiny’s Child has given me.”
In addition to her singing career, Kelly became famous for her wit sparring with Simon Cowell on The X Factor, reported the Huffington Post. As an X Factor judge, Rowland sought to combine honesty with kindness, she emphasized.
“I’m very honest, I’m constructive, and firm… I think it’s important to be constructive when it comes to criticism with people.”
What’s the truth about working with Simon Cowell? Kelly recalled some good times – and some strange times.
“There are no words for Simon,” Kelly joked. “All three of us actually put Simon in his place….I think it was a great decision.”
Most recently, The X Factor was in the news when two judges were fired over what many considered bullying comments toward a contestant as the Inquisitr reported.
