Songbird Faith Evans made a name for herself in the early 1990s with her debut album and being the wife of late hip-hop star Notorious B.I.G. Fast forward over 20 years and the beautiful singer has had chart-topping hits, children graduating high school and a life she can smile about. She even has a 60-pound weight loss that she is proud of. In her own words, Faith describes how it all happened:

“When I moved to Atlanta, I had a trainer down there for a couple of years. Actually, I started working with her prior to my last album. Since that time, I relocated and got even more into fitness and dropped a few more pounds. I guess the more weight I lost, the easier it was to see my physique. I’ve been at it for a couple of years. It wasn’t easy.”
“My highest weight was 192 lbs. I’m 5’7″and at about 132 lbs. now. I met this trainer, and her approach worked for me. I do these stairs in Santa Monica—it’s about 200 stairs, and I go up and down them 15 times. I do the stairs about four times a week, and my kids, they do the stairs too. Traveling makes it hard, but when I’m on the road, I take weights and resistance bands. I tie the bands onto doorknobs and do arm exercises. I might occasionally have a cookie, but working out is the key for me. I never saw myself doing push-ups, but now I’ll do 50 by the side of the stage. It feels good to know I can do it.”
