Lorraine Kelly reveals 1.5st weight loss was ‘dead easy’ and is ‘feeling happier’

Lorraine Kelly has said she is feeling better than ever after reaching her goal 1.5 stone weight loss goal.

The television presenter, 62, has dropped two dress sizes from a 14 to a size 10 and says she’s “feeling happier and healthier”.

Lorraine turned to WW, formerly known as Weight Watchers, after she found herself developing a habit of “mindlessly eating” plates of biscuits during lockdown which caused her to pile on the pounds.

“I comfort ate and would just find myself hovering around the biscuit tin and the fridge for all sorts of goodies. Me and Steve would have a massive, big chocolate plate every night,” she told the Express.

“It started off quite small but ended up being huge! I was going through packets of biscuits and unhealthy grub. I wasn’t doing as much exercise and mindlessly eating, just eating for the sake of eating. Now I’ve got much more of a balance.”

Lorraine said she found it “dead easy” dropping the pounds by walking 10,000 steps a day with her beloved dog Angus as well as switching up her diet.

“It isn’t a stupid, silly diet because diets don’t work, as we know. It’s just about making little changes. We all know what is good for us, we all know what we are supposed to eat, so it is about getting that balance right”, she said.

Lorraine insisted she isn’t “bored or miserable” with the changes and enjoys having a spicy vegetable soup for lunch three days a week as well as treating herself to a biscuit or two with a cup of tea.

The TV host previously opened up about her weight gain as well as her journey to lose it again.

“During the pandemic, I started comfort eating and that was my downfall – comfort eating and not being able to go to my fitness classes,” she told the Mirror.

“When those classes stopped I started eating far too much – it was things that I would probably never bother with. Like I wanted muffins, I wanted croissants, I wanted doughnuts.

“All of these things that you know you shouldn’t be having and you think it’s making you feel better at the time and it doesn’t. And so slowly, slowly, slowly over the past couple of years, I’ve gone from a size 10 to a size 14…”
