Basketball Wife star Laura Govan is no stranger to cameras. As one of the more rambunctious stars of VH1’s Basketball Wives LA, she was often seen in heated arguments and sometimes physical altercations with co-stars Malaysia Pargo, Jackie Christie, and Draya Michele. But by time the reunion show aired, we encountered a much more subdued woman, sporting a 23-carat ring from her fiancée Gilbert Arenas and boasting about being a mother to her four children.
It’s clear that with the new season of BBWLA which aired yesterday, Govan has stareted focusing on other goals. She’s since toned down her attitude, and toned up her physique, dropping an astonishing 90 pounds.
She told Uptown magazine,
“Well, naturally I was 117 pounds. Within three months of delivering my first child, I was back to my natural size. As I’ve had more and more children the weight stayed on. I had to change my mind first. I had to make up my mind that I wanted to lose weight, but I still ate like I was pregnant. Once I finally made up my mind, I took those goals and I ran with them.”
And running she did, Govan also dished about her diet and fitness routine,
“I am an athlete. I play basketball and trained at every level. I had to learn to work out with my children. I changed my diet. I changed who I was and it just came off. You really have to change your mind and attitude and everything else will follow. I enjoy working out.”
It’s clear she’s changed her mindset, because her body is sick! What do you think?
