Jill Scott

Jill Scott says she is "in a good place" after losing more than 50 lbs., she tells Ebony Magazine.

The Grammy winner, former star of HBO's The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency and mother to 2-year-old Jett flaunts her new slimmer figure on the cover of the June issue of the magazine.  In her interview, she says has been working with a trainer who knows how to keep her workouts exciting. "Anything that makes me feel like I'm not working out," Scott, 39, says. "We go outside and throw footballs, go for walks."
