Jordin Sparks is sporting a svelte figure these days.

The American Idol winner sat down with The Today Show this past week for their “Love Your Selfie, Reclaiming Beauty” segment to discuss her whopping 50-pound weight loss.

After a health scare 18-months ago, Sparks decided it was time to make a change, “I had gotten really sick. And I was about to celebrate my birthday and I was like, ‘I should be in the prime of my life right now. I shouldn’t be feeling like this. I really need to make my health a priority.’ And that’s what I did,” said Sparks.

Nowadays, “I go anywhere from, like, 155 to 161. So I’m right around there. That’s where I am,” she added.

The “Battlefield” singer also shared her thoughts on the pressure to be thin in Hollywood.  “It does get a little crazy. I think not succumbing to the pressure is harder than actually giving into it.”

“[It would be easy to say], ‘OK, I’m going to try and look like everybody else.’ Instead, I loved the way I looked before. I was comfortable with how I looked. But, a lot of it has been really focusing on becoming healthier. And the plus side was that my body changed, which was awesome. It wasn’t about being a zero or a certain size or anything like that.”

She continued, “I know that there are some women who struggle to even look themselves in the mirror. And I hope that those women who are struggling can watch this and go, ‘You know what? I’m OK with who I am. And I’m beautiful in my own way.’”
