Traci Braxton has transformed over the course of the last year. The “Braxton Family Values” star recently dished to OK! magazine about how she managed to drop 40 pounds, which has left fans stunned.
For Braxton, losing the extra pounds meant watching what she put into her body and focusing on her diabetes.
“I watched what I had to eat, drank plenty of water, and took care of myself. I changed a lot of my diet by taking a ton of starch out of it,” she said on Tuesday, Sept. 18. “I was diagnosed diabetic and didn’t want to take any more pills, so I had to go on this healthy kick and now I control it through my diet. Because of that, I am no longer on the pills.”
Braxton, who said those who hope to lose weight should do so in their own time, said her weight-loss journey has rubbed off on her sister, Trina Braxton.
“My sister Trina is really on that health kick now,” Traci shared. “She’s on a veggie diet and doing really well. She can only do what her body can let her do. I’m proud of her.”
And Traci must be proud of herself and her new figure. She’s been showing off her frame on Instagram lately, rocking a fitted black military jacket with gold detailing and body-hugging flared pants.
Several fans commented on the Sept. 15 post with lots of praise.
“Trina you go girl show em what you work in wit”
