After Reality TV Star of Oxygen TV’s Bad Girls Natalie Nunn suffered a miscarriage, she got depressed, turned to food and packed on over 40 pounds. Over time, she decided she wanted to channel her thoughts and energy into something to distract herself from the tremendous loss of losing a child.
Nunn turned to exercising and eating right and lost close to 50 pounds in three short months.
“When I had the miscarriage, I was at a place where I was very depressed,” Nunn said. “I was very sad. I didn’t really want to do anything, I just stayed in the house. I was just eating and staying home and I just kind of got depressed and lazy. Then I noticed I was about 42 pounds over my normal weight. I was like 187 pounds. I ended up going to Miami but paparazzi got pictures of me on the beach and it went everywhere. I was just really, really heavy. ”
The unflattering paparazzi photos that wound up in gossip rags were enough motivation for her to do something about the gain.
“I started going in the gym and found myself just fooling around in there,” she told MadameNoire in an interview late last year. “After the first 90 days, I lost 42 pounds. And people were seeing me do this transformation because I was on Snapchat and Instagram, and people were like, ‘What are you doing?’ and ‘What workouts are you doing?'”

She then quickly turned the queries into a business and started her own fitness challenge course that she started to sell to others.
Nunn and her ex-football player husband Jacob Payne used her celeb following to launch the No Payne No Gain 90-Day Challenge.
“I make more money,” she told Madame Noire. “All because I’m up and at it every day with full energy, a glow, no negativity. It’s crazy. Fitness and health is no joke. It affects everything you’re trying to do.”
After becoming pregnant again, she continued her exercise regimen and used her own experience of doing doctor approved moves and healthy eating to create a plan for other pregnant women.
“My fit and pregnancy workouts have been keeping me in good shape and I feel great while being active during pregnancy! she wrote in an Instagram post directing her fans and followers to her website. “I also have created an at home fit pregnancy workouts for all you moms who want to stay in shape while pregnant no gym needed no equipment needed!”
