On Thursday, the fitness trainer to the stars, Tracy Anderson, revealed that she hadn’t always been slim and fit. In side-by-side pictures, she showed what she looked like more than 23 years ago.


The star motivated her fans with the Instagram photo that showed how much weight she lost over the years. She also encouraged others to share their own transformations.

Tracy Anderson, 43, shared before-and-after photos of her personal weight loss. The images compared her trim figure now to her body before she was 20 years old and had gained weight in college.

At the time, it wasn’t only unhealthy but also not ideal for someone on a dance scholarship. Anderson, the owner of the Tracy Anderson Method, has celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Tracee Ellis Ross, Jennifer Lopez, and others as clients.

‘One of the reasons I have focused so deeply on the strategy of my method is because of the way that hard work has paid off for me personally,’ she wrote. The trainer added, ‘Everyone’s before and after is unique and I believe the most empowering gifts can’t even be seen by the naked eye.’

‘Sharing your personal journeys helps people every day. As we jump start this month please post what your before and after means to you.’

Anderson has previously confessed that the other dancers in her program gave her bad advice about losing the weight. This forced her to figure it out on her own.

In 2015, she told Cosmopolitan that they’d advised her to starve herself or do drugs. At the time, she’d gained around 40 lbs.


So Anderson decided that she needed to eat three meals a day and to stay away from meal suppressants. She also began to succeed in losing weight when she stopped comparing herself to others.


The trainer shared that when she was 20 she would ask herself why she couldn’t have a body like her roommates. Her roommate could eat pints of ice cream but had a naturally high running metabolism.

Eventually, Anderson realized that “being your most balanced self doesn’t mean being as thin as someone else, it doesn’t mean having the legs of someone else, it doesn’t mean have the butt of someone else.”
