“I was trying to do this diet and I kept putting it off. I didn't think I could have the discipline in what I ate. Once my mind was committed to it, my body committed to it. I'm still 20 pounds away from my goal weight,” she said.

In addition to focusing on her physical health, Nicki emphasized the importance of mental health as well. “This has been one of my favorite years so far, I realized I unlocked the lock,” she said. “I realized that success starts inside you, it doesn't start with success. Success doesn't start with success, meaning I don't have to be the number one female rapper. I have to know I can be the number one female rapper.”

Nicki’s weight loss goal could be motivated by her upcoming wedding ceremony with husband, Kenneth Petty. Back in October 2019, the two obtained their marriage license after a year of rekindling their romance. During an interview around that time, the Pink Friday rapper explained that she wanted to carefully plan the details of her special day.

“We’ll definitely do the paperwork portion of the marriage, but the actual wedding, I don’t know,” she said. “You know when you’re a little girl and you want this big beautiful wedding, and I used to think I was one of those girls, I always wanted the fairytale. But then the things that used to matter to you don’t matter as much because I remember wanting those things with people, where real love wasn’t there.”

“So now I feel like now that everything has finally lined up and matched up being that I’m madly in love with this man, he’s also my best friend, the things that used to matter to me before, don’t matter as much now. So yes, we’re going to have a big wedding eventually,” she continued.
