The legendary performer Marie Osmond showed off her age-defying body on Instagram this week as she modeled a pair of skinny jeans after a 50-pound weight loss.

Osmond, 61, exuded confidence as she wore a fitted orange T-shirt that was tucked into her jeans. She completed her look with a camouflage jacket and a hand on her hip.

“I love this time of year!” Osmond wrote in the caption. “I remember years ago dreading taking walks or hikes because I was carrying around so much extra weight. Thanks to @nutrisystem, I lost 50 lbs and have the energy to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air.”

Osmond has kept the weight off since losing 50 pounds while competing on “Dancing With The Stars” back in 2007.

“I was doing ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ and I thought 50 extra pounds in spandex is not a beautiful combination. I was ready,” she told Fox News back in 2019 when asked what led to her losing weight.

“It took me about four months to lose 50 pounds. People assume I lost it on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ but that’s not true. I started my journey before I did that show. And while I was doing ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ Nutrisystem found me.  … And it was fantastic,” she added, referring to her teaming up with the weight loss plan.

“I was going through a divorce, a custody battle, I was dancing – but it helped me get back to my healthier, happier self,” Osmond said. “I just can’t do steamed chicken and vegetables. It doesn’t work for me. … But I wanted to take care of me. And that’s what I did.”

The food plan ended up being perfect for Osmond and her needs.

“I eat six times a day, I never starve,” Osmond told Daily Mail last year. “When I first started Nutrisystem, I was freaked out because I felt like I ate too much food. Because in the past, I would not eat all day and then I would have a big dinner before I went to bed. I ate inconsistently.”

“But realized that I had slowed down my metabolism by not eating and then overloaded my body. My metabolism was dead,” she continued. “So it took a while to get used to eating six times a day, but when I did, I lost weight because I was keeping my metabolism revved up.”

“When I was 50 pounds overweight, I couldn’t walk up the stairs with a laundry basket without huffing and puffing,” Osmond concluded. “Now, I can hike with my husband and run around with my grandkids.”
