NeNe Leakes recently shed a few pounds in preparation for her wedding. But don’t expect the Real Housewives of Atlanta star to continue with her weight loss endeavors! She says that, although she was happy to slim down for the ceremony, she still prefers to be a “curvy girl.”
If you’ve been watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta spin-off I Dream of NeNe, you might have noticed that the ordinarily voluptuous NeNe Leakes is looking a bit slimmer than usual. But what culminated in NeNe Leakes’ 20 pound weight loss began as an effort to shed a far smaller amount of weight. The reality star tells Life & Style, “I only wanted to lose 5 or 10 pounds. I like being a curvy girl…I’m not trying to starve myself.”
So, how exactly did NeNe end up losing so much weight? The celebrity says she made a few basic tweaks to her daily routine. “I tried to give up soda and not eat late at night.” But forgetting the careful scrutinization of calories! NeNe had no interest in spending all her time staring at nutrition labels, which is why she kept the weight loss effort so simple. “I don’t count calories or carbs. Counting doesn’t get me anywhere. I do portion control when trying to lose weight. Eat less, move more.” For NeNe, “moving more” has involved the occasional sweat session at the gym, plus plenting of running around after her granddaughter.
