Nancy Cordes Lost A Lot of Weight, Is She Still Skinny?

Nancy is a name that may be familiar, especially if you follow celebrity news. She is the mom of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and sister to Joe and John Cordes. When she was pregnant with her first child, she reportedly lost 120 pounds in just five months. Since then, she has been keeping a relatively low profile, focusing on her family and their busy schedule. While Joe and John have followed in their famous sister’s footsteps, making them one of the few celebrity sibling pairs, Dwayne has gone his own way, becoming one of the most prominent men in Hollywood.

The Rock now weighs in at a somewhat unnormal 272 pounds and is considered one of the world’s great sports figures. Even more impressively, he has maintained his weight since his daughter was born in 2008. While his weight loss was partly due to going vegan during the pregnancy, he credits his excellent body shape to his careful diet and workout routine. Now, he is determined to share his wisdom on how to stay in shape with the world.

Is Nancy Cordes still the slender woman we knew back in the day? Let’s take a closer look.

Nancy’s Weight Loss

When Nancy was pregnant with her first child, she reportedly lost a lot of weight, going from a size 14 to a size two. While this may seem like a lot of weight to lose in just a few months, celebrity pregnancy dieting is certainly nothing new. When she was 22 weeks pregnant with her daughter, Megan, she was reportedly photographed wearing a mini-dress and high heels. Her slim figure was clearly visible through the sheer dress. This was just the sort of image Megan’s mommy needed to set the stage for the birth of their baby girl.

Even more impressively, Nancy kept the weight off even after Megan was born, reportedly losing 55 pounds in the first six months after the baby’s birth. She credits her continued good health and trim figure to her vegan diet and regular workouts. In 2016, she stated that she strictly follows a vegan diet. According to her, it has helped her maintain her naturally slender figure. She continues:

“Going vegan has enabled me to stay in shape, to stay active, and to be much more vibrant. As a result, my skin has never looked better. I actually think it’s helped me to hide my age a little bit. I’ve never felt better, and I’ve never looked better. So that’s the benefit of going vegan.”

Other Siblings’ Weight Loss

While his weight loss was partly due to going vegan during the pregnancy, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson credited his excellent body shape to his careful diet and workout routine. His sister Joe and brother John have also taken their turn at the weight loss dance. After he was born, Joe reportedly lost 30 pounds in the first year of his son’s life. The two later reunited on the set of the 2019 movie The Game Plan, starring alongside Alicia Silverstone and Vanessa Hudgens.

It seems that having strong willpower and a decent support network are all it takes to succeed in losing weight. Still, it is nice to see some famous family members continuing to lead by example, proving that it is indeed possible to lose weight and keep it off. If you’re looking for a role model, these celebrity siblings are ideal.

Still Skinny?

For those of you who watched the original “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” you know that the Khoo family has been going through a bit of a weight loss struggle. It seems that since Kylie Jenner debuted her much-talked-about weight loss journey back in 2014, other family members have been struggling to keep up. One of the most notable examples is Kris Jenner. After watching her daughter lose a ton of weight, Kris decided to lose a few pounds of her own. In 2019, she dropped 20 pounds. Not bad for an older woman. Nowadays, she focuses on being the best mother she can be while staying fit.

It seems that whenever there is a celebrity pregnancy or babymoon, people lose weight. Is this a trend that will continue? Perhaps not. As people get older, it is fair to assume that they will put on more weight. Still, it is always nice to see those who manage to keep up with the trends, such as the Kardashians and their famous friends.
