Dawn French talks about her weight loss
In her first interview since shedding the weight, Dawn revealed: "I'm eating healthily, taking care of myself and feeling very happy indeed." She went on to say, "Life is good. I want to go to Pilates classes, actually."
It's a far cry from the comedienne who has always been a cheerleader for the curvy woman. But she puts her desire to ditch the pounds down to wanting to do it for her daughter Billie and to turning 50. She said: "I think when you're over 50, you kind of have to pay attention to your health a bit. I want to be there for my kid."
She added: "'I have quite a lot of exciting adventures that I want to do and I just ballooned up a bit more than I wanted to. But you can always address it. You just have to eat less and walk more - and that's what I'm doing."
Talking about Dawn's weight loss Dora Walsh, head nutritionist and founder, www.nutriheal.net said: "Dawn looks great, but her amazing weight loss isn't just good for her appearance. Shedding her excess weight will help her to be healthier and reduce the risk of heart disease, adult onset diabetes, gout, stroke and many other obesity related health problems. I just hope she's lost the weight safely through healthy diet and exercise because there are no quick fixes."

looking fab at 5o, Dawn looks amazing, although she was big before she has the most amazing smile and always looked great, in my opinion she hasnt lost enough to make her look ill, she looks positively fantastic, what a transformation, well done dawn, one of tv's favourite ladies.
Blooooody hell.... I always thoughts Dawn was gorgeous, but now she is a complete babe... You sure she is 50??!! You go girl, let it be an example to others. If Dawn can.... Anyone can!!
If there is one thing i tell anyone wishing to look after themselves better, its down to one core ingredient.... A positive mental attitude.
The rest is all structure...
Well done Dawn... Mowah!!
Actually Jarjar Bloom it is possible to loose that amount of weight over a four month period with out having a gastric band. Have you never watched the Biggest Looser!!!
Really you should keep your unfounded comments to yourself, if you cannot prove something - dont say it.
People can change their minds, who are we to judge.
I honestly don't think Dawn would give a toss about what people thought if she did have a gastric band fitted and would come clean if it were true, especially after Fern Britton took the flack for not letting on. Anyway it has nothing to do with anyone else, how one chooses to lose weight.
Dawn you look gorgeous and alway's will with such a pretty face,no matter what size. Well done !!
