Until recently, slimming down was a constant battle for Trisha Yearwood.
So what changed? The country crooner said the passing of her parents was a real "wake-up call."
"Part of their illnesses were related to their lifestyles and diets," explained the singer whose father developed adult-onset diabetes and whose mother battled breast cancer.
Trisha said the deeper motivation of becoming truly healthy was "a big difference than 'I want to wear a smaller size.'"
And although she admits she does want to fit into tinier clothes, "I've always been a heavy girl, I've never been little," she says, adding: "I'm still not exactly where I want to be, but I feel so much better."
