You can count on Miranda Hart to approach weight loss in a practical and achievable way and the 42 year old comedian has clearly been following her own advise as she was spotted recently looking svelte and slim.
According to a report by The Mirror, Miranda was spotted out looking particularly slim, prompting a passer-by to tell The Mirror: ‘I literally did a double-take – at first it didn’t register it was her, the weight loss is pretty dramatic.’
When Miranda hit 40, this was a milestone for her concerning her weight and she told Now Magazine that she considered herself to be naturally much slimmer than her larger frame confessing that being overweight made her feel like she was “wearing a fat suit”.
She told Now Magazine: “The reason I’m set on losing weight is that I’m not naturally this big, I’m naturally lean,’ she explained.
Miranda Hart added: “When I put on weight, I feel like this isn’t me, this isn’t right. I feel like I’m wearing a fat suit. I went with it for a bit, and didn’t mind it, but now I’m going to be 40 next year I want to get it off for health’s sake, so I can go into a new decade feeling healthy.”
While Miranda is keen to keep in shape and be healthy she admitted to Now that one of her biggest problems was having a large appetite: “I’ve just got such a big appetite. If I was naturally this size, I would just crack on with it and go, “Well, that’s just me.”
Miranda, who is known for her hilarious comedy roles added: “If you’re naturally a certain size I think it suits you and you can see that. There’s no point in trying to conform for the sake of it. People are meant to be different shapes, and their different shapes are so interesting and, ultimately, why people fall in love with them.”
Miranda Hart is a rare breed of celebrity who is willing to talk honestly and openly about weight and diets and her issues with weight are ones that many people are able to identify with.
It is great to hear that Miranda is in more in control of her weight and that she is working towards a future where she is both happy and healthy.
