Just in time for 59th birthday, Sheryl Underwood is celebrating her weight loss journey.
Last month, the talk show host graced the stage wearing a dress and red high heels for the first time in 12 seasons.
In a recent interview with PEOPLE, she opened up about her big reveals and transformation:
“I wanted a dress that really showed the work that I’ve put in this and to show the audience and the world, ‘You can do it too. Pick a dress, pick a suit, that is your goal, and work toward that goal.”
“If I’ve worked hard on my body, I want to walk into church and all them saints fanning like, ‘Oh, she look good,’” the star added. “I want to walk into my office, ‘Oh my gosh, she look good.’ I want to walk into the club or the restaurant and everybody’s head turn and that’s what I want… That’s how I feel, because when you look good, you feel good.”
She also worked with a personal trainer, dietician and also received Wegovy injections to achieve her goals.
According to reports, Wegovy is an “injectable prescription medication” that helps adults lose weight by suppressing their appetite.
Sheryl says she has to modulate and make sure that she drink a lot more water.
“I still have a really great quality of life, I have fun — cake, rosé,” mused Underwood. “But instead of having the big piece of cake, I have a bite of the cake and satisfy that. I have a glass of rosé, but I know I have to drink some water with it.”
Underwood plans to lose an extra 15 to 20 more pounds and believes she can hit her goal by the end of the year.
We love to see it!
