Trina Braxton: "Once I Did This, The Pounds Kept Falling Off"

Reality star Trina Braxton shares her weight loss tips.

Published January 6, 2014

R&B singer, actress and Braxton Family Values star Trina Braxton is looking absolutely amazing these days! Since just about everyone is in New Year’s resolution-mode, thought it’d be very “fitting” to ask Trina to share some of her top weight loss secrets.

BDO: Where are you right now in terms of your weight loss goals?

TB: I gained almost 40 pounds. I went from 135 to 170 pounds. I am now at 146, with ten more to go. It was definitely a challenge!

BDO: What’s your relationship with weight loss?

TB: The scale and I used to be great friends…until I turned 35. Then, my stressors triggered my weight gain.

BDO: What are some of those stressors?

TB: My relationships, and being a mom to two teenagers.

BDO: When did you realize that you wanted to lose weight? What was the catalyst?

TB: I was skinny girl all my life. What made me realize I had to change was when I saw myself on the TV, and when the things in my closet didn’t fit. My sister literally called Weight Watchers for me and registered me.

BDO: Did you stay with Weight Watchers?

TB: No, I didn’t actually go.

BDO: So what did you end up doing?

TB: I took a hard look at what I needed to change about my lifestyle…at what my challenges were.

BDO: And what were those challenges?

TB: My challenges were going to the gym and eating differently. Before my weight loss journey, I was depriving myself, then overeating when I did indulge. When, at first, the scale didn’t change, I ate more because I was frustrated. I learned that sometimes inches are lost before you see numbers drop on the scale.
