Country Singer Elle King Addresses Her New Appearance: ‘Not On Any Weight Loss Medication’

Country singer Elle King addressed a big change in her appearance, clarifying for fans that it’s not the result of weight loss surgery or popular medications like Ozempic.

The 34-year-old said at her heaviest, she weighed 284 pounds following the birth of her son Lucky in September 2021. 

“Almost 2 years postpartum! I am making this post to share my journey from 284 lbs at 5’3 from pregnancy 2021 – now 2023. It doesn’t happen overnight,” King wrote in an Instagram post. “It didn’t even happen in a year for me. In fact, it’s an ongoing still working towards ever-changing goals kinda thing.”

“So why am I sharing this? I fell into a very deep depression during my pregnancy,” she continued. “I also didn’t even realize how intense postpartum depression is and was until I very slowly began to crawl out. I felt trapped in my body. I couldn’t even sing.”

The songwriter is best known for her top ten single “Ex’s & Oh’s.” King is the daughter of actor Rob Schneider. 

She described some methods she used to lose weight, including spending more time in the gym. “So I started slow. Metabolic workouts. Light cardio to warm up my body, my lungs, my voice, and my spirit. I am a creature of habit, so I changed my f***ing habits. Every few weeks I feel my body getting stronger. I add more workouts, I exercise with @pauldominic_ who is basically a body builder,” King continued in the post, which included photos of her working out.

“But if you don’t have one of those then YOU have to be your own champion. Find music you like! Ride a bike! Go for a swim! I thought I wanted to lose weight, but it’s so much more. My BRAIN functions better on the days I move my body.”

King confirmed she’s not on medication. “Some days I count stretch marks. Some days I hug myself and say thank you to my body. Today is a kind day. I’ve been tiny, I’ve been huge, BUT RIGHT NOW IM HEALTHY,” she wrote. “I can’t believe that I even have to say this, but no, I am not on any weight loss medication. I have PCOS and am pre-diabetic. My diabetic grandfather died when I was 10 years old. I watched him prick his finger and give himself shots.”

“I do not judge anyone who is trying to live a healthier life,” she concluded. “I can only share MY OWN JOURNEY! I just hope to live a long, wonderful, healthy life where I can drink a lot, eat fish, laugh as much as I can, and die happy.”
