‘I feel sexy again – now I want a new man!’
Tuesday 24 April 2012
Clearly pleased that her new diet is paying dividends, Lauren Goodger showed off her new slimmer figure on a night out in London last week, wearing a revealing top and skintight leather leggings.
Despite initially struggling to cut out booze, pals say the 5ft 6 TOWIE star, 25, is now determined to stick to her strict calorie-controlled plan until she sheds 2st and reaches her goal weight of 9st.
And, after losing 7lbs in two weeks, sources tell Closer that Lauren’s confidence has been given such a boost that she’s already talking about finding a new man.
A show insider says: “Lauren found the first week of dieting hard, but now she feels great. She’s gone from being knackered all the time to feeling full of energy.
“She’s mainly noticing the weight loss in her face and hips, and she loves her flatter stomach and more defined cheekbones.
“And cutting down on alcohol means she isn’t bloating or bingeing because of a hangover.
“She’s much more confident and says she’ll be ready to date when she’s lost another stone.”
The star, who proudly showed off her flatter stomach last week, has been following the Cambridge Weight Plan, which uses meal replacement shakes and bars. She said of the diet: “I wanted something quick because I’m going away again soon. I want to go to Marbella and Ibiza and when I’m walking around I want everyone to go: ‘Oh my God, have you seen Lauren?’”
During the first series of TOWIE in 2010, Lauren weighed 9st 10lbs and was a size 8-10. But by the end of the second series, she had gained over 1∂st and gone up to a size 12 – admitting that alcohol and junk food were to blame.
After losing a stone last May – dropping from 11st 4lbs to 10st 4lbs and from a size 12 to a 10 in just a month – she admitted turning to fad diets in a bid to slim down.
She said: “Ever since I was 18, I’ve tried all sorts to shed a few pounds every so often. At one point I was surviving on just two litres of water and a tuna salad a day.”
Recently, Lauren’s weight crept back up – with pals saying she had reached a size 14. Her unhappiness over her figure came to a head last month when her weight hit 11st and unflattering bikini pictures from her Miami holiday appeared in the press.
“I’ve tried boot camp, had a personal trainer and a nutritionist, but I just start eating again,” she said last month. “I have a problem.”
But now pals say she’s ecstatic with the results of her new regime, and she vowed on Twitter: “I’m going keep doing this until get my goal [sic].”
And pals reveal that Lauren – who Closer recently revealed was still hoping to revive her 10-year on/off relationship with former TOWIE co-star Mark Wright – could be finally ready to move on from him for good.
Friends of the star say Lauren has told them: “I feel sexy and I want to meet a man.”
The source says: “Lauren is determined to stick to the diet this time. She’s drinking loads of water, weighing herself regularly and getting a buzz when another pound’s gone.
“She says her next man won’t be from Essex, but she won’t start dating until she’s nearer her goal weight. She’s nervous, but excited, at the prospect of finally moving on from Mark.
“She feels a new body – and a new man – is the only way for her to do it.”
