Kelly Clarkson has been making headlines lately for her noticeably slimmer figure. The singer and talk show host has now opened up about the story behind her weight loss transformation.
Background on Clarkson’s Weight Struggles
Clarkson has been open in the past about her struggles with her weight over the years. She gained a significant amount of weight after having her two children. In 2017, she shared that she had lost over 30 pounds on a new diet and exercise plan she was following with her trainer. However, like many, her weight has fluctuated up and down since then.
Clarkson Credits Listening to Her Doctor for Recent Success
In a new interview, Clarkson reveals that the key to her recent success has been “listening to her doctor.” She explains:
“When women go through different stages of life, your hormones with having kids and age and even stress…if your cortisol goes up, it exponentially changes every piece of the chemical makeup in hormones. So that’s been the biggest issue.”
She said her doctor adjusted her medications and lifestyle changes like diet and exercise followed.
Clarkson Making Major Lifestyle Changes
Sources close to Clarkson say she has made major changes to her daily routines to support a healthier lifestyle:
- Eating much more clean, protein-based foods
- Walking outside daily
- Finding time for self-care like massage, meditation and reading
She also moved her show production to New York City which she says has allowed her to walk outdoors more and connected her with a new team of health professionals.
Weight Loss Timeline
While Clarkson first debuted her slimmer figure back in late 2022, new details have emerged on her specific weight loss timeline:

Clarkson’s Inspiring Body Positivity Perspective
Fans are praising Clarkson for being open about the ongoing struggle so many face with weight and body image. True to her positive spirit, she reminds people:
“It’s just is what it is, though. It comes and goes. The weight will come and go, and that’s it. Staying positive and staying surrounded by positivity is really important.”
She wants people to know that bodies change and there should be no shame around that:
“We fluctuate and go up and down, and that’s what bodies do.”
What’s Next for Clarkson
While Clarkson still wants to lose 10-15 more pounds to reach her goal, she says she is also focused on avoiding burnout and finding balance.
Fans can expect to keep seeing her new healthy lifestyle reflected across her ventures – on her talk show, as a coach on The Voice and as she works on new music in 2023.
Clarkson’s authenticity about the ongoing struggle with weight is inspiring. As she continues forward in her health journey, she’s setting a positive example of self-love and care.
