‘So I wanted to let y’all know it’s possible, we can do it and we can get there,’ she added as her hair was pulled back in a bun allowing her youthful face to shine.

‘For me it was with no surgery, no pre-packaged foods, not listening to no spokespeople saying “it’s easy, you can do it.”

‘It was just putting in the work and not giving up on me,’ she explained.

The video included a snap of the scale registering 198.4 and a picture of a healthy pizza as the actress believes ‘RAW FOOD IS THE TRUTH’.

‘So I want to share with y’all what it looked like on the scale this morning, and I want to share with y’all the goodness that you can eat and still drop this weight. 

‘It’s called raw foods, it’s called dancing your pounds off. It’s called giving yourself the chance to live the best life you can live. Thank you all for sharing my journey.’
