Dawn
this weekWhat a difference six years make.

Dawn French is our new thinspiration.

She's been showing off her shrinking frame this week.

Dawn
back in 2005In fact, it's hard to believe it's the same
person we've come to know and love over the years.

The 53-year-old was a shadow of her former self at some glitzy book awards in
London today.

And it's a far cry from her 20st self of 2005.

Now 16st and looking better than ever, Dawn recently revealed: "I'm eating
healthily, taking care of myself and feeling very happy indeed.

"Life is good. I want to go to pilates classes, actually."

Well we don't think you need them, love.

Good work.

She looks fantastic, and must feel sooo much better and healthier, I do hope she keeps it off.....
Imo this happened after her and (awful) Lenny Henry split up, which sadly usually happens with alot of women and men. I remember her been interviewed not that long ago and she said she would NEVER diet, that she was proud to be big!!!, loved her chocolate tomuch to give it up, no that wasn't a newspaper interview it was on TV, these stars seem to forget what they have previously said.

Morning LilyoftheValley

I bet there"s a new man in her life Yes Lennie was not the most faithful of husbands although I understand they are both good parents and have
a good relationship. Dawn is a very funny Comedienne and not afraid to make a fool of herself. I"m just giggling remembering the scene in The Vicar of Dibley where she is walking along with the guy she fancies and suddenly disappears under water, that was a classic. Also French and Saunders was a favourite programme of mine.

I think she looked better as she was or maybe somewhere inbetween.One of those women who always looked like she could carry the weight and be happy with it,though she claimed to be i doubt she ever was,nor anyone else who's overweight for that matter.
Now looks like a big head on a shrivelled up body,hope her skin has shrunk as well.Very funny lady and obviously looks like Lenny Henry got custody of the fridge when they split up.

Dawn is still 16 stone Lioned and about 5"3"..........still much overweight. .....I think she looks great and probably had liposuction then exercise to tone
up her body. The weight she was carrying would have told on her health eventually. BTW how are you getting on with your aim to lose weight.

A friend who is a London cabbie told me that he regularly ferries a few celebs around, most of whom are friendly and chat to him, ask about his family. The exception is Lennie Henry, whom Pete (cab driver) has been driving around for quite some time, who has never been friendly and hardly ever even says hello.

If she put on a few more stone i'd quite fancy her myself !

Meantime i have a few extra pounds around my middle (a remnant of my drinking binges through the World Cup capaign).Seems no matter how hard i work it just wont shift now.
Me,i'm touching on 15 stone but i'm 6' 5" so i still look like a lamp post (with a bit of a bulge in the middle you know like them old Victorian ones)

Bejaysus, Lioned, 6ft 5ins.....that"s about Peter Crouch"s height , but he looks like a beanpole....too skinny. Iv"e gone up two sizes the past year and
I"m only little.....5ft 2ins so Iv"e got a midriff bulge and a bit of a pot. I have a very sweet tooth which is my problem but I can reduce my weight
without exercise, just lay off the sweet stuff.

A Friend of mine employed a Personal Trainer and tried to explain Pilates to me not sure I understand but she has trimmed down and goes for workouts
which is great....for her.

I was quite shocked, Panda. Lennie Henry seems to come across as a friendly, out-going chap, a matey sort. But not as far as a regular cabbie is concerned.

I can"t remember which Country it was, but my friend and I walked to the Sunday Market, on the way back went into a lovely Park and sat on a Bench.
A few minutes later an elderly couple came in and started performing tai chi, it"s therapy for the mind Lioned isn"t it, not physical , just hand movements
basically.

She looks fabulous doesn't she? I wonder if she's had a gastric band as it's such a dramatic loss - her business if so. I never believed her when she said she was happy with her size though, l don't believe anyone is happy to be grossly overweight.

Lioned l'm the same, nearly 6ft tall and 12 stone, l'm kind of in proportion just the podgy stomach l just can't seem to get rid of. I don't understand it l used to be a beanpole and now l'm more active than ever running around with work, home and child l'm bigger than ever, how come?!

Jennifer Saunders has spoken about about her friend's weight loss.
These two have been friends for years, so it's no surprise to hear them opening up about each other.

But this wasn't exactly what we were expecting.

Jennifer says she's now the larger half of the comedy pair.

At her first public appearance in more than two years, the comedienne
and actress said: "Dawn is smaller than me now. She is this big
(indicating three inches with her hand) - as big as a small fawn.

"She is so happy at the moment. She looks really, really beautiful."

I still got a beer gut,hows that then ?

Someone I know went to Budapest to have liposuction on her thighs and stomach, it cost her about £3,000 and she had to stay there for
4 days but she was well pleased. It"s much cheaper than the U.K.

One of my 'clients' said i look 'well fit' the other day ! And that i'd put a bit of weight on around my face !
As i've always been a bit on the lean side i am happy to have put some weight on and as i've been working like a slave of late most of it is muscle,trouble is will that all turn to fat when i have a few lazy weeks ?
Still got the beer gut too.

Lioned, you are obviously conscious of your over weight , with your height, is it really that noticeable? I gave up smoking 6 years ago and as
most people do, put on weight , my sweet tooth mainly responsible. I"m not paranoid about it though and can lose a few pounds just by giving
up sweet stuff, but wouldn"t life be boring if we had to count every calorie?

Re: Dawn French looking great

Post  Panda on Tue 7 Feb - 6:29

You'd think she'd be proud of losing seven and a half stone.

Heck, Dawn French should be singing from the rooftops.

But it seems she's not as happy about the weight loss as you might expect.

Dawn French has lost 7st 7lb after giving up carbs and chocolate

The British comedienne weighed 19st before cutting out carbs and chocolate in a bid to slim down.

Now 11st 7lb, Dawn may well be regretting the move.

She told Woman magazine: "I had great fondness for that other body. I
knew it very well and I don't know this one as well, not yet.

"I was never actually unhappy then so it's not the case that I was miserable and I'm happy now."

Speaking about how she achieved her new slimline figure, Dawn revealed: "I don't eat bread, potatoes or pasta now.

"I don't have chocolate in my house. That is really hard."

She's now a happy and healthy 11st 7lb

The 55-year-old's interview comes as a far cry from the Dawn of just three years ago.

Back in 2009, she said: "I can honestly say that it doesn't bother
me, though I do worry that I'll get so comfortably fat that I won't be
able to walk any more.

"Sometimes I'll get out of bed and think, 'Oooh, I need to do some exercise' - but that's probably about once a year, if that.

"I may ultimately regret not looking after myself more, and plenty of
people would line up to tell me that, but it doesn't concern me."

Well, would you look at her now.

I quite like the look of her now, she is quite small and 11 stone is a fair weight. The problem is Lioned, the size she was would eventually affect her
health .
