Geri over weight woes
13:30 11 March 2005
Geri Halliwell says she is no longer obsessed with her weight.
The former Spice Girl, famed for her yo-yo dieting, says she has finally stopped worrying about her figure and is happy with her appearance after years spent battling eating disorders.
She told Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine: "I've spent too much of my life focusing on losing weight. I've done a lot of work to move on. I don't want it to be the topic of my life any more.
"Now if I exercise, it has to be for pure fitness."
The pop babe also revealed that she's on the look out for a new boyfriend.
The 32-year-old singer, who has previously been romantically linked to 'Angels' singer Robbie Williams and American actor Jerry O'Connell, admitted she feels ready for love now that she has conquered her personal demons.
She added: "If a guy was to meet me now, he'd find me a different proposition to a year ago.
"In the past, in relationships, I'd lose a little bit of myself and feel a bit swamped and then I'd freak out and not want to be close."
