The actress showed off her slimmed-down figure in a long black sleeve top with flared trousers with diamond detailing, and believe us, she looked amazing. If we compare Lisa from her past and now, the person is entirely unrecognizable.
Way to go! Lisa. We couldn't be prouder of you. She just proved anything is possible if you really want, and the result is just in front of us.
Lisa opened up about her struggle to lose weight with Express UK. She went on to tell the media outlet that she made herself fat by gorging on bread, crisps, crumpets, and red wine. But when things started to get too serious for the television personality, she thought she accept the responsibility for her health, weight, and lifestyle, which she did make it easier to control her weight.

The star revealed she started her weight loss journey by cutting down the portion of her meal. She added, "You don't have to have a starter, main, and pudding." Moreover, she also authored a book titled 'Honesty Diet' where she shares some of her healthy recipes and how she keeps her weight under control.
The 43-year-old television star made it sound effortless like it was just a piece of cake (given if we are allowed to have cake in our weight loss journey! JK). But anyway, she did make it sound like it's really easy, and according to Lisa herself, it is!
