Country crooner Elle King has lost a lost of weight.
The 34-year-old chart-topping singer from Los Angeles was newly slimmed down in a black mini dress in images shared to Instagram this week.
The daughter of 50 First Dates actor Rob Schneider shared that she is half her size since losing weight after welcoming her son Lucky Levi two years ago.
‘Almost 2 years postpartum,’ the blonde performer wrote in her caption.
When pregnant the 5ft3in star was 284lbs.
She did not say how much she weighs now but she appears to be half that weight at around 140lbs.

The Ex’s and Oh’s hitmaker welcomed Lucky in September 2021.
But she struggled when she suffered from depression during her pregnancy and became exhausted.
King also wrote in her caption, ‘I am making this post to share my journey from 284 lbs at 5’3 from pregnancy 2021 – now 2023.
‘It doesn’t happen overnight. It didn’t even happen in a year for me. In fact, it’s an ongoing, still working towards ever-changing goals kinda thing.’
She explained how post partum made her feel awful.
‘I fell into a very deep depression during my pregnancy,’ she said. ‘I also didn’t even realize how intense postpartum depression is and was until I very slowly began to crawl out. I felt trapped in my body. I couldn’t even sing.’
One day she decided to exercise to fight the blues.
She started out slowly with easy movements that didn’t stress her out.
‘I did light cardio to warm up my body, my lungs, my voice, and my spirit’ before starting to ‘feel my body being stronger.’

And she said if you don’t have a personal trainer then ‘be your own champion.’
Elle said, ‘Find music you like! Ride a bike! Go for a swim! I thought I wanted to lose weight, but it’s so much more.
‘My BRAIN functions better on the days I move my body,’ she added.
‘Some days I count stretch marks. Some days I hug myself and say thank you to my body. Today is a kind day. I’ve been tiny, I’ve been huge, BUT RIGHT NOW I’M HEALTHY.’
She seems much better now than she did in December when she fell, resulting in a concussion and amnesia.
The singer told Entertainment Tonight: ‘I can laugh now, because I’m doing a lot better, but it was a very intense thing,’ she said.
Elle was walking down steps in the middle of the night to make a bottle of milk for her son Lucky Levi, 16 months, when she slipped and fell.

Elle has been doing physical therapy, specifically stretching and ‘quiet downtime’ during her recovery process.
She was home alone with her son Lucky during the accident.
Elle explained the accident during the interview: ‘I was walking down our steps in the middle of the night, to make a bottle, and I slipped and knocked myself unconscious.’
Adding: ‘I can laugh now, because I’m doing a lot better, but it was a very intense thing. They said I got amnesia and got post-concussion syndrome.’

‘But the baby is totally fine, and I’m doing a lot better,’ Elle said.
‘What I love about Nashville is the community that I haven’t really had in any of the last multiple cities that I’ve lived in, even if I’ve had a bunch of friends,’ she noted.
‘There’s something beautiful about this city and my friends and my music family, they all totally gathered around me and were all so supportive and showed up for me and helped me with the baby.’
Elle and fiance Dan Tooker, a tattoo artist, welcomed son Lucky Levi on September 1, 2021.
Dan proposed to Elle in October 2020 after they dated for a year.
The Playing For Keeps singer is the daughter of actor Rob Schneider and London King.
