Jill Scott Says She’ll Never Be ‘Stick-Thin’ After Losing 63 Pounds

Like Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks, Grammy winner Jill Scott is receiving a lot of attention due to her recent weight loss. After debuting her sexy new figure at the 2011 BET Awards, the R&B songstress has revealed in the new issue of Us Weekly that she dropped a stunning 63 pounds in the last two years.

“I’d walk up nine steps and be out of breath!” reminisces Scott in the new issue of Us Weekly, out now.

The “So in Love” singer reveals that she took on a healthy diet and fitness regime, which include eating three low-fat meals every day as well as two snacks and working out 60-minutes three times a week with a personal trainer.

“We have fun!” says the 39-year-old, who added that she boxes, kickboxes and also bikes outside with her son, Jett, who she birthed in April 2009.

Scott also credits her son as the motivator for losing weight adding, “There’s a world of discovery in his eyes, and I want to be around to enjoy it!”

But don’t expect Jilly from Philly to be a thin girl as she counters with, “I’ll never be a stick-thin figure!”
