Just how much weight did Jordin lose? 50 pounds, if you can believe it.
She was always beautiful, but now Jordin is proudly showing off her bikini bod on the magazine's cover, plus shedding some light on how she lost the pounds.
Jordin is now four sizes smaller since her time on American Idol in 2007.
What prompted her to want to lose weight? Jordon said that she was diagnosed with walking pneumonia, explaining she "couldn't breathe" and "felt totally fatigued."
She added, "I just wanted to be healthy. I remember thinking, 'I'm in my prime. I should be happy and fit.' That was the moment when I decided that changes needed to be made."
Jordin explains that she knew she "had a long road ahead" of her, saying, "I was barely working out, and my diet was a mess. I had to address when, what, and how much I was eating."
She credits smaller portions, hiking and making smarter food choices for her success.
Seeing the results of her efforts was excellent motivation, as she explains, "The weight really started falling off, and I could see my muscles. It was awesome."
She looks great!
