Adele lost about 100 pounds

The 33-year-old singer lost around 100 pounds but explained that she had no intention of losing weight, she had just started working to help her cope with how she felt following her separation from Simon Konecki.

Speaking in his “One Night Only” special, he told the host Oprah Winfrey: “[Working out] it was mostly about my anxiety. I’ve had the most terrifying anxiety attacks after leaving my marriage – it made me so confused and made me feel like I didn’t have control over my body.

“I noticed how much I trusted my coach’s presence when I felt so lost, but I also didn’t have any anxiety when I was in the gym. It became my moment: to have a plan every day when I had no plans. “

The “Easy on Me” hitmaker – who has a nine-year-old son Angelo with Simon and is now dating sports agent Rich Paul – has received criticism for her weight loss from some people, but has insisted that she wasn’t “shocked” by the comments as people have always had an opinion on how they look.

He said: “Me. [wasn’t] shocked or even stunned by it – my body has been objectified my entire career. I’m too big or too small, I’m sexy or not or whatever – I’ve never admired anyone because of their bodies.

“I was positive for the body then and I am positive for the body now.

“It’s not my job to validate how people feel about their bodies. I’m sorry someone feels awful about themselves, but that’s not my job. “

Elsewhere on the show, Adele admitted that she found it “tiring” to adjust to life after the divorce.

Discussing the lyrics of his new song ‘Hold On’, he said: “My friends always said ‘wait’ when I felt like the lyrics of the verse. But it was exhausting trying to keep moving forward.

“It’s a process. The divorce process. The process of being a single parent.

“The process of not seeing your child every single day – it wasn’t really a plan I had when I became a mom. The process of coming in for yourself every single day and showing up for yourself every single day and continuing to run a house, again running a business so many people know what i’m talking about.

“I feel that way too. I juggled those things too. And I felt like I wasn’t doing it anymore and also trying to move forward, but with intention. Not just to get out of it for no reason. Walking through all that concrete hurt my feet. “
