Miranda Lambert’s Struggles With Weight Gain in 2022
Miranda Lambert (@mirandalambert) has always excelled at everything she does except when it comes to maintaining an unwavering sense of self-confidence – all due to extreme self-awareness of her body.
The country singer has always struggled with keeping her weight stable, which more often than not fluctuates. Moreover, she doesn’t like how even a little weight gain shows very quickly on her because she’s just 5 feet 4 inches.
Miranda Lambert’s negative preoccupation with weight was affecting her performances as well. When she would set out to perform her songs, on stage, she would be self-conscious about her body and worry about how she was looking. She would be distracted by her insecurities and due to that, she always failed to give her best.
Earlier in her career, the Bring Me Down singer didn’t have a proper fitness routine or specific dieting-with reason and rhyme, to keep her weight in check. She had been on all kinds of diets. But nothing ever worked in her favor. So, her weight always kept fluctuating.
For instance, every time Miranda Lambert did low-carb dieting, her weight would decline for the duration of the diet but as soon as she stopped that, her weight would bounce back very quickly, which would frustrate her. On top of that, the Grammy winner sometimes didn’t give much thought to what she ate and used to be careless with her eating habits.
There were a lot of times when sometimes, for weeks, the Fastest Girl in Town crooner would just drink beer and live on cheeseburgers. Though that time would be fun for her as she would not worry about her weight, she would later always discover that she would not fit into her clothes following weight gain.
And hence, the obsession with weight would again start. Then Miranda Lambert would spend a month doing Pilates or riding a lot and running. And the cycle would go on forever.
But that cycle was broken when Miranda changed her outlook when it came to watching her weight. It was a time when she was happy with where she was in her career but not with the way she looked. Anyway, a fan approached her who had a similar build as her and looked the same age as her.
She didn’t talk about Miranda’s music but instead proceeded to tell her how she has been a source of inspiration and confidence. The fan wanted her to know that she had thrown away her scale because of Miranda. When she saw how Miranda was so confident, she realized that her weight was not on a scale; it was in how she felt about herself.
That moment with the fan effectively ended all her insecurities and inhibitions about her weight. She got the confidence to be like ‘whatever state she was in, she gotta rock it.’
After years of body image issues, the Bluebird songstress learned to be comfortable in her skin and weight. In an interview with People she gave in November 2019, she shared that she had hit her comfortable place. She was a size 6, give or take 5 pounds, depending on the day.
Miranda Lambert also revealed that her husband Brendan McLoughlin helped her stay fit. He would go on a run with her and remind her to do her workouts, which she was always thankful for.
