Countess Vaughn Weight Loss
Although she is a mother of two children, Countess Vaughn has significantly improved her figure through her immense weight loss and is guilty of flooding social media with enticing images of her newly acquired circumcised figure.
In her opinion, this was not an easy task, as she had to deal with the greatest devotion, a change of diet, regular exercise, and plastic surgery (liposuction).
She reportedly had to exercise for 30-45 minutes a day, reduce her food intake (fried chicken was completely removed from her diet, which happens to be one of her favorite dishes), and nibble and endure two equally painful liposuction operations.
