Hint: It's not always easy
Just a month ago, Mel B posted an inspirational and powerful message on her Instagram with a photo of the cover art for the single "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" while she was, where else, on vacation in Ibiza with her husband Stephen Belafonte. That vacation was one of the first times the Spice Girl's incredible thirty-pound weight loss really turned heads—and she got real about her road to her success in that post:
My jam right now In the gym in Ibiza but no pill for me hahaha the only high I got was from working out,and Ive worked soooo hard for this body trust me it didn't come easy it takes a lot of dedication control dissapline and will power cos it isn't fun been the only girl at the party not drinking and the only one waking up at the crack of dawn to workout so you still get to do the school run I say this because a few months ago I was nearly 30lbs heavier and I put myself on a mission to change,to change and be the best version of myself inside and out I'm not perfect but all I can do is try that's all we can do,but the hard work is paying of finally I feel amazing and it's only getting better so ladies if your going threw it or have been threw it give yourself a big pat on the back coz it's all you and no one NO ONE can ever take your inner strength away from you and if they think they can laugh in there face hahaha nothing more powerful than a woman on a mission to make herself better right we all need somthing to love and the first stop should be yourself better late than never #thestruggleisreal #enoughsaid #getyourownlifetogetherbeforeyoujudgemine #ifeelblessedtofeel #somtimesyougottabeabitchandspellitoutforpeople
Mel B opened up and explained that she "worked soooo hard for this body" and that it didn't come easy. She credited a lot of dedication, discipline, control, and will power—including sacrifices like not drinking at parties and waking up at the crack of dawn to work out. "I put myself on a mission to change and be the best version of myself inside and out I'm not perfect but all I can do is try that's all we can do, but the hard work is paying off finally I feel amazing," she revealed. "Nothing's more powerful than a woman on a mission to make herself better." This shot of her in a bikini while in Ibiza is nothing short of stunning:
Since then, Mel B has been documenting her svelte, new frame and sharing the secrets of her success on Instagram. So what are they?
