Countess Vaughn’s Weight Loss
Countess lost a lot of weight with her secret shared with the ‘People’s Magazine’ in 2015. She mentioned how her weight loss procedure included months of daily workouts, strict diets, and painful liposuction.
She has revealed that she workout for 30 to 45 minutes every day with music to make it more fun. Her daily fitness routine helps her become energized for the entire day.
She also followed a very strict dietary plan. She started consuming a proportionate meal, and instead of having 2 or 3 meals a day, she took the idea of snacking. Her favorite choices for snacks were yogurt and nuts. It was hard for her, as she had to resist eating her favorite food items like fried chicken. So, to help with this, she ate one piece instead of 3 or moved away from the food.

She has also confessed that she went through liposuction for the second time. She had the first one in 2003 after the birth of her son. However, she looks at the surgery as a treat for herself. She has reportedly gone through the surgery not just to look good but also to feel healthy.
When she was asked why she wanted to lose weight, she said,
I wanted to do a mommy makeover. I had done it after my oldest child. I really needed to just treat myself, and I'm happy about it!
It was a difficult road for her, especially as a mother of two kids. However, her makeover was made possible by her love for her children.
