"I love my boobs!" says Shepherd, 42, who lost four inches from her chest during her two-month weight loss challenge but still wears a DD cup.
Would she ever consider a breast reduction now that she's getting back into shape? "What?! No! I would never ever, ever, ever," says Shepherd, whose measurements are 40-33-37. "I don't care how old they get and how long they get, I'm going to love my boobs. I'd never get rid of them."
Not that she's anti-surgery in general. "I have a little muffin top from my C-section," says Shepherd. "I said if I can keep this weight loss up for a year, I'm getting my tummy tuck.
There are parts of her new 159-lb. figure she's learning to embrace for the first time. "I have collarbones!" Shepherd says, brushing her hair back to reveal them. "I love these. I always thought models had collar bones and I never thought I would have collar bones."
She worked hard to get them. Along with signing up for food delivery service Fresh Diet, Shepherd met with her trainer Don Scott four times a week for hour-long workouts since May.
"I hated my trainer so much," says Shepherd, who now wears a size-6 pants and a size-10 dress. "But a lot of what kept me going was my son [Jeffrey, 4]. I really wanted to get healthy because I want to be there for him. I want to be able to see my son graduate, I want to see my grandkids – and I want to be able tell my son I don't like my daughter-in-law."
