Myleene Klass Recently Opened About All the Criticism She Faced Prior to Her Weight Loss!
Thanks to her weight loss, Myleene Klass (@myleeneklass) looks absolutely fit and fine these days. However, this was the same always. In a heart-to-heart conversation with campmate Carol Vorderman, Myleene confessed that she was asked to lose weight as soon as she joined the musical Miss Saigon and that Hear’Say was renowned as the “fattest band in pop.” She told,
When I joined the Miss Saigon cast, I was lined up with all the other girls and I was told, ‘You’ve got to lose weight’. And then I got in the band and I had other band managers coming up saying, ‘You’re the fattest band in pop’

Years later, Myleene Klass has become a fitness inspiration for thousands of women because of how she defended all the criticism and how seriously she takes her health. Instead of tolerating all the harsh comments about her body size, the 45-year-old star put on the work and underwent a significant weight loss transformation.
You wouldn’t be right to think she’s always had her toned size 8 figure. While she was in a pop band, her weight slowly increased to 11 and a half stone. Pretty heavy for someone who has a height of 5 feet 5 inches.

After 22 years, it is evident that Klass has continually strived to develop good habits, work out frequently, and, as a result, have a body she is pleased with. In fact, Klass even released her own training DVD, My Body By Myleene, in 2019. She previously said,
I’m not naturally slim. I’m 5ft 5in and I’m not a model. Because I’m not a model, I’ve learnt to make the best of what I’ve got – short legs and bandy arms and a long back and terrible posture, but I don’t wish to be anything else. It’s my points of difference that have made me a success.
Talking about her weight loss, she also added that she does not want her children to have a bad body image. She explained,
I don’t want my children to have a bad body image so I don’t want them to see me sitting there sucking in my stomach or looking at myself negatively. I want them to see me eating well. I won’t use the word diet. I won’t even call a Diet Coke by its name – in my house it’s known as a DC.
Despite all the struggles and criticism, Myleene Klass never gave up and kept putting in the work consistently. We can clearly see what she has achieved for her efforts. No doubt, she deserves to be praised for her weight loss journey. Furthermore, click here to find her diet routine.
