‘I used to cry but now sweats’ Adele shows off weight loss
Superstar Adele has lost over a stone and she shared a rare photo of herself to Instagram to show fans the results of her weight loss.
Adele showed off her weight loss when she attended Drake’s birthday party in Hollywood on Thursday 24 October.
The singer wowed in an off the shoulder black dress as she partied the night away with other celebrity guests in LA.
Adele’s weight loss is reportedly down to pilates which the songstress took up recently when she was inspired by pal and Robbie Williams’ wife Ayda Field. It is believed that she has lost a stone as a result.
The star has previously spoken about how she lost weight to get fit for her tour during an interview with Vogue in 2016.
“I was trying to get some stamina for my tour, so I lost a bit of weight. Now I fit into normal, off-the-shelf clothes — which is a really big problem for me!,” she shared.

As someone who has admitted before that she disliked exercise, and would rather have lunch with a friend than go to the gym, Adele is now said to love working out.
We first got a glimpse of her weight loss at her 30th birthday party in May 2018, when the star shared images on Instagram from her Titanic-themed 30th birthday bash.
Dressing like Kate Winslet’s character, Rose, Adele showed off her slim figure, and her followers could not get enough of the “Someone Like You” singer. “You look amazing,” one user wrote. “Beautiful!” commented another.
In June fans again noticed a significant amount of weight loss when Adele attended a Spice Girls concert and the official spice girls account posted a photo to Instagram.
Adele took up Reformer Pilates, after her divorce from Simon Konecki.
According to The Sun, Adele gave it a try with famous pal Ayda Field, the wife of Robbie Williams and loved it so much she continued with it.
After her marriage split a source told the The Sun that Adele was enjoying a “new lease of life”.
“Adele has been out enjoying herself and she sees that as her priority at the moment, along with being a mum to Angelo,” the source reveals to the publication.
“She has been loving her new workout regime and it really works for her. It’s a bonus that she has shifted some weight.”
Reformer Pilates is much loved by athletes and celebrities alike, including Miranda Kerr and Kate Hudson, who swear by it for strength, toning and body awareness.
A step up from your regular Pilates, Reformer Pilates involves a reformer machine, which adds resistance to the normal Pilates movements, and it looks like Adele is now a Reformer Pilates convert.
Adele has previously told Rolling Stone that she’d much rather have lunch with her friends than go to the gym.
She revealed that her weight had never been an issue for her and that she had always been confident in her own skin, but did decide to pay more attention to looking after her health following the birth of her son Angelo in 2012, which included giving smoking and her 10 cups of tea with sugar a day.
She also reportedly took up the Sirtfood Diet, an eating regime which focuses on what foods you should eat, rather than ones you shouldn’t.
Some Sirtfood approved foods include green tea, kale, tofu and healthy servings of dark chocolate and red wine.

1988–2006: Early life
Adele Laurie Blue Adkins was born on 5 May 1988 in Tottenham, London, to an English mother, Penny Adkins, and a Welsh father, Marc Evans. Evans left when Adele was two, leaving her mother to raise her.
She began singing at age four and asserts that she became obsessed with voices. In 1997, at the age of nine, Adele and her mother, who by then had found work as a furniture maker and an adult-learning activities organiser, relocated to Brighton on the south coast of England.
In 1999, she and her mother moved back to London; first to Brixton, then to the neighbouring district of West Norwood in south London, which is the subject of her first song “Hometown Glory”. She spent a lot of her youth in Brockwell Park where she would play the guitar and sing to friends, which she recalled in her 2015 song “Million Years Ago”.
She stated, “It has quite monumental moments of my life that I’ve spent there, and I drove past it [in 2015] and I just literally burst into tears. I really missed it.” Adele graduated from the BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology in Croydon in May 2006, where she was a classmate of Leona Lewis and Jessie J.
Adele credits the school with nurturing her talent even though, at the time, she was more interested in going into A&R and hoped to launch other people’s careers.
2006–2010: Career beginnings and 19
Four months after graduation, she published two songs on the fourth issue of the online arts publication PlatformsMagazine.com. She had recorded a three-song demo for a class project and given it to a friend.
The friend posted the demo on Myspace, where it became very successful and led to a phone call from Richard Russell, boss of the music label XL Recordings. She doubted if the offer was real because the only record company she knew was Virgin Records, and she took a friend with her to the meeting.
Nick Huggett, at XL, recommended Adele to manager Jonathan Dickins at September Management, and in June 2006, Dickins became her official representative. September was managing Jamie T at the time and this proved a major draw for Adele, a big fan of the British singer-songwriter. Huggett then signed Adele to XL in September 2006.
Adele provided vocals for Jack Peñate’s song, “My Yvonne,” for his debut album, and it was during this session she first met producer Jim Abbiss, who would go on to produce both the majority of her debut album, 19, and tracks on 21.
In June 2007, Adele made her television debut, performing “Daydreamer” on the BBC’s Later… with Jools Holland. Adele’s breakthrough song, “Hometown Glory”, written when she was 16, was released in October 2007.
By 2008, Adele had become the headliner and performed an acoustic set, in which she was supported by Damien Rice. She became the first recipient of the Brit Awards Critics’ Choice and was named the number-one predicted breakthrough act of 2008 in an annual BBC poll of music critics, Sound of 2008.
The album 19, named for her age at the time she wrote and composed many of its songs, entered the British charts at number one. The Times Encyclopedia of Modern Music named 19 an “essential” blue-eyed soul recording. She released her second single, “Chasing Pavements”, on 14 January 2008, two weeks ahead of her debut album, 19.
The song reached number two on the UK Chart, and stayed there for four weeks. Adele was nominated for a 2008 Mercury Prize award for 19. She also won an Urban Music Award for “Best Jazz Act.”
She also received a Music of Black Origin (MOBO) nomination in the category of Best UK Female. In March 2008, Adele signed a deal with Columbia Records and XL Recordings for her foray into the United States.
She embarked on a short North American tour in the same month, and 19 was released in the US in June. Billboard magazine stated of it: “Adele truly has potential to become among the most respected and inspiring international artists of her generation.” The An Evening with Adele world tour began in May 2008 and ended in June 2009.
