Jill Scott will be rocking the stage at the ESSENCE Music Festival (got tickets?) but we will be seeing less of the songstress than we’re used to.  That’s because Jill has lost a whopping 63 pounds.

She recently opened up about her weight-loss secrets saying her diverse exercise routine, which includes boxing and biking has made the journey worthwhile. “We have fun!” she told Us Weekly referring to her workouts with her trainer.

Keeping things fun has helped Jill shed the weight –and keep it off — for two years now. She says that taking charge of her health became a priority when she became a mom. “There’s a world of discovery in [my son’s] eyes, and I want to be around to enjoy it!”

Although the soulful singer is happy about her weight loss, she still embraces her curves, a feature that is often praised by her fans. “I’ll never be a stick figure,” Jill added.

You’re looking great, Jill! We can’t wait to see you work your magic on stage at EMF!
