As Marie Osmond prepares the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars, she’s also preparing for some “hopeful” weight loss.
The mom of eight (yes, eight!) reveals that she’s “kind of excited to get back in shape and feel good again,” after all, “I still have a lot of life to live.”
Even though Marie had been working on getting the weight off before DWTS called, she still felt she had more to go.
“I did a Christmas tour last year and I said, ‘I’m kind of overweight, I had spent so much time in the hospital with my mom and then my dad and then my ex-husband, and then it was like, you know, milkshakes at three in the morning.'”
So she says she decided to start dieting and get back in shape by signing up with the program “Choose to Move,” and then she went on NutriSystem. “I’ve probably lost about 10 pounds, and then this opportunity came up and I’m like, ‘I need to go for another 20 at least.'”
She’s hoping Dancing With The Stars will be the answer to those remainding pounds she wants gone!
