Britney Spears is flattered that Miranda Lambert would use her as motivation for her workouts.

In a recent issue of Women's Health, the country star and wife of Blake Shelton opened up about Spears' impact on her exercise routine.

"Like if I put on Britney, I can picture Britney's body and I'm like, 'Oh! Faster!'" she told the magazine, via E! News.

In May, Lambert opened up about her weight loss journey, claiming it all started after she began seeing unflattering photos of herself in the media. As the photos continued to surface, Lambert began getting contacted by weight loss companies who were hoping to sign her on as a spokesperson for their brand -- but only if she could agree to lose 40 pounds.

Although Lambert was certainly impacted by hearing she needed to lose 40 pounds, she didn't let it get to her too much. Instead, she began working out and eating healthy at her own pace.

After embarking on the new lifestyle, Lambert completely transformed her body and in May 2014, showed it off to the world in not one, but three, amazing outfits at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. On the red carpet, Lambert put her toned arms and legs on display in a pink mini-dress with plunging neckline. Inside the show, she wore a tight black gown, as well as a graphic T-shirt and mini combo.

In response to Lambert's quote in Women's Health, Spears shared a photo of the magazine clipping on her Instagram account, along with the caption, "So flattered by this @mirandalambert! My sister @jamielynnspears just showed me. You look amazing!! @womenshealthmag."
