Linda Robson loses 7lbs in 8 days
Linda Robson has managed to drop half a stone in just over a week by cutting sugar out of her diet
Linda Robson has lost 7lbs in just eight days after giving up sugar.
The 'Loose Women' panellist - who used to consume the equivalent of 100 doughnuts each month due to her love for sugary booze and calorific treats - has decided to banish the sickly substance from her diet in a bid to get fit and is over the moon with the results thus far because she can now squeeze into size 14 clothes for the first time in years.
Speaking on the lunchtime show on Wednesday (18.01.17), she said: "Mark weighed me. I still don't know how much I weigh but I've lost between six and seven pounds in eight days. The wine belly has gone down quite a lot already.
"It's not as hard as it was but I'm still struggling, it's just having that something in your hand. We distract ourselves, we've been watching 'The Crown' on Netflix."
The 58-year-old star is still trying to find new ways to distract herself from wolfing down belly-bulging snacks when she's sitting watching television in the evenings but has already swapped wine for sparkling water and chocolate for mints.
She said: "For the first time in a while I'm in a size 14, this shirt is new and it's a size 14."
However, Linda is slightly worried about the future as she's set to jet off to Florida over the next few weeks to shoot a competition for the show and is worried about her diet.
She explained: "That's going to be quite hard but Alison Hammond is going with me and she's doing (the TV show) 'Sugar Free Farm' so we're going to help each other."
And the actress also has her fans on her case as they've been looking in her basket when she's out shopping to ensure she stays on the straight and narrow.
She added: "People are checking up on me. They're checking my basket to make sure there's no wine in there."
