Just over a year ago, country star Miranda Lambert revealed she’d lost 20 pounds off her tiny 5’4″ frame.
And now, Miranda, 31, is showing off her trim figure and candidly opening up about her weight loss journey in the newest issue of ‘Marie Claire’ magazine.

“When you have to walk out there in front of thousands of people, it does feel good to know that your s***’s not jiggling,” she said of losing a dress size.
“I’m just like anybody else, insecure and scared of looking bad or being criticized. But everybody’s making this big, giant thing about it,” she added.
The Grammy-winning star also noted the pressure she and other women in Hollywood feel to maintain a certain weight. “It’s way too much focus on women’s bikini photos, and I hate it. Why do we care? I want women to love themselves whatever they’ve got going on,” she told the magazine.

Miranda — who has been married to fellow country star Blake Shelton since 2011 — credited her loving husband for helping her through her weight loss journey.
“I’m not sunshine and roses. Blake’s the happiest person on the planet. He pulls me out of my darkness… Literally, everything is the best about being married,” she said.
