Adele has radically changed her appearance after losing 100lbs, but she recently claimed that, despite shedding the extra weight, she is still the same person.

During an interview with Vogue, the 33-year-old opened up about how her body changes affected her fans and, especially, how it affected her and why she decided to start working out.

According to Adele, her goal when she began her fitness journey was not weight loss, rather an effective way to become physically and emotionally stronger.

AN ESCAPE FROM REALITY

The star started training on a daily basis 3 years ago and has kept that routine ever since. Although she lost a lot of weight, she said that exercise did wonders for her anxiety.

Seeing other women having "brutal conversations" about her body disappointed her.

Regarding her weightlifting and circuit training sessions at Heart & Hustle, a private gym, Adele described them as her time, and said she quickly realized her anxiety would just vanish while she was working out:

"I thought, if I can make my body physically strong, and I can feel that and see that, then maybe one day I can make my emotions and my mind physically strong."

She also admitted that she became "quite addicted" to exercising and that when her anxiety reaches sky-high levels, she ends up working out up to 3 times a day.

Adele revealed she usually likes to work with the weights in the morning then leaves all the cardio for the evening. In the afternoons, she goes on hikes or does some boxing.

DEALING WITH PUBLIC OPINION

After she shared her famous full-body photo back in 2020, a lot of people were shocked by her appearance and the fact that she didn't share her fitness journey online. She said:

"They're used to people documenting everything on Instagram, and most people in my position would get a big deal with a diet brand. I couldn't give a flying [expletive]."

According to her, she did it for herself, no one else, and that she never found the transformation fascinating because it is her body. Not only that, but she got used to her body being objectified through the years.

Adele stated that, while her body changed, she hasn't, and that seeing other women having "brutal conversations" about her body disappointed her and hurt her feelings.
