Jordin Sparks, who recently slimmed down from a size 14 to a size 8, was surprised by the reaction to her recent bikini photo on Twitter.
“I liked the way the bathing suit looked, and I wanted to see what it looked like. So, I tweeted the picture of myself in the mirror,” she explained. “I didn’t know it was going to get the reaction that it got, but overall it’s been pretty positive.”
Jordin, who will be featured in People magazine as an “amazing body,” has lost 30 pounds, according to “Access Hollywood.”
The “American Idol” singer, who’s recently been romantically linked to Romeo Miller, said that her weight-loss regimen was nothing drastic.
“My diet has pretty much remained the same. If I want a piece of bread, I’m going to have a piece of bread, but making healthier decisions, like instead of a bag of chips for a snack, I might try to find an apple,” said Jordin, who also took long hikes and cardio classes to trim down.
Jordin also talks about her new single, “I Am Woman.” Plus, see the infamous bikini photo. Watch.
