Raven-Symoné says it was Miranda Pearman-Maday who pushed her into making healthier choices for her body.
Symoné credits her wife for the change, “because we want to have a life together.”
According to Symoné, 35, she had “horrendous numbers” at a doctor’s appointment before spearheading her weight-loss journey, and Pearman-Maday, 33, “doesn’t want to take me to an early grave.”
“I want to make sure I am there for her in the best health possible,” she added. Symoné shared her weight loss in a May 29 Instagram Live session while driving in the car with Pearman-Maday, saying she was “28 lbs. down” and has “a whole different face going on.”
“You’re incredible honey. You’re doing so good,” Pearman-Maday said to Raven.
Symoné appeared on Good Morning America last month, admitting she was going “low-carb as much as possible. In addition, she revealed having “a minimum of a 14-hour fast between dinner and breakfast.”
“I’m not over here trying to be a little twig,” she said, later adding, “I want to make sure that my body is healthy and prepared to deal with old age.”
Symoné and Pearman-Maday celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary on June 16, where the pair honored the day in photos and video footage from their special day on Instagram.
In her own tribute, Symoné posted a selfie of her wife with the caption: “You have done something to me that I thought wasn’t possible.”
“You’ve made me smile,” she continued. “Not the one where I know people are watching or because I’m a girl and I need to. No babe the smile comes when my hurt brain tries to take over and then I see your face. A smile that reminds me everything is gonna be ok now.”
“You are the switch in my life that turned the light on. You brighten my life. Those who know me (Me, Me) know that… well Im growing more in love with you everyday. Thank you for changing my mood, life, body, and creating true happiness in my life. I can’t wait to share it with the world. And one day I’ll tell you what’s inside my quiet days. I promise,” she continues.
“Our path together will be and has been covered in ice, but walking with you by my side, each step we take together melts it and my heart,” Symoné added later. “I love you MVPM, you da plug, the snatcher, the writer, the lover, the mistress, the chef, the brain, the smuggler, the friend, the front and side chick, but most importantly your [sic] my wife.”
