"I lost 18 pounds. And I think that happens when you fall in love or date someone. If I'm going to be messing around, I gotta look good."
She added: "There's not a fad diet. I was working with a trainer. You'd be amazed the amount of weight you can drop by halving your portions," she said. "I know it sounds crazy, but do it for two weeks and watch what happens.' I just cut back my portions, I stopped eating late at night, and I work out a little more than I used to, and I literally dropped 18 pounds in a month. I think it happens when you get really busy. But when I'm on my off-time – girl, those 18 might come back."

"I'm not willing to do that. I'm willing to work a little bit because I want to be a healthy individual – which I always have been. I've put on weight, but that's just what I'm happy with at that moment."
And she says it helps to stay motivated when her fiancé works out with her.
"Brandon and I both have bikes on the back of the bus, and we both love the outdoors. Once your lifestyle becomes more active, obviously you drop weight."
