Adele has lost quite a lot of weight of late, which is evident from the recent pictures of hers on social media. The British singer-songwriter appeared significantly transformed in the picture she posted a picture on Instagram earlier this month, thanking fans for wishing her on her 32nd birthday.
Adele’s weight loss photo went viral and had the tabloid tongues wagging over how she managed to pull this off. Experts are estimating Adele has lost a whopping 7st (44.5 kg) in total over the course of her career.
