Debbie Gibson Shares Swimsuit Photo as She Waves Goodbye to 2023

Here are her top lifestyle habits.

Debbie Gibson is bidding adieu to 2023 – in her swimsuit. In a recent social media post the 53-year-old shows off her age-defying body in a bathing suit top while "waving goodbye" to 2023, but "holding onto the joy and the connection and the lessons in the heartache and releasing the pain and the guilt and the sorrow and all that doesn't serve me as I walk in slow motion eyes wide open into 2024," she wrote in the caption of the Instagram post. "You look awesome," commented one of her followers. "Absolutely gorgeous 😍😍😍bombshell," added another. How does the Electric Youth singer manage to look half her age? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits. 


Protein Breakfast


Debbie is a morning person and shared her go-to meal in an interview with New York Times. "I need breakfast within a half-hour of waking up. I'm a basic eggs, orange juice and coffee person. On a decadent day like today, it's an almond croissant."


A Dietician Approved Eating Plan

Debbie, who battles Lyme disease, "was scared of food" for many years. "I didn't know much then. I had to do food allergy and sensitivity tests. I was super, super strict, eating organic proteins, veggies and low glycemic fruits. I'm happy to say I know what works for me now. I've built my body back up to the point where nothing is going to take me completely down," she explained to the New York Times, revealing that she has worked with the same dietician, Lisa Giannini, since she was 17. "She has so many great tricks, and she's very into gut health. It's about learning your own health and diet puzzle."



Debbie does "just enough movement to be fit, but I can't use up all my reserve," she says. "I did get a Peloton, and I do love it so so much. I also have an elliptical machine, and I do my own made-up version of a workout with light weights and a Pilates ring. And I do a whole lot of walking with my dogs," she explained. 



Debbie enjoys workouts that "feel flowy," she told the New York Times. "I discovered Kundalini yoga from this woman on YouTube, Sat Dharam Kaur, who does these amazing breathing exercises. I used to be addicted to that super-sore, I-can't-walk-the-next-day feeling. It did me a lot of damage. I'm a more-is-more kind of person, but my body is, like, "Sorry, you have to learn moderation."



"I think everybody has a journey — we all have edges we're trying to contain — but I think one of the biggest lessons I've learned is that I'm not people-pleasing anymore. I have no problem saying I need to take a self-care day," she explained to the New York Times.
