Indeed, some reports claim that Ortiz was able to lose 50 pounds—and judging from the pictures, it’s totally believable.
“This is interesting because I learned a lot about weight loss. The muscles are heavy. At first, I jumped 50 to 60 pounds proportionally. When you train and change your body, you will lose everything very quickly because your body will react. At the beginning of weight training, the weight gains due to muscle mass, but it looks the same as when the weight is reduced severely. ”

Indeed, Latifah became one of Jenny Craig’s spokespeople, not least because of her amazing transformation.
To Latifah’s credit, she’s looking awesome these days, and we’re guessing that her new, healthy lifestyle will be keeping the weight off this time. “I don’t really go on a diet.

He seems to have been able to keep the weight off even while filming and promoting The Interview with James Franco.
How was he able to do it? Apparently through strength training, a strict diet, and a personal trainer to monitor his progress. Continuous strength training helps to shrink the skin and prevent it from sagging when you start to lose that accumulated fat.

And, it seems pretty obvious that he did, given how ripped his body now is.
Apparently, his weight peaked at 200 pounds, which he said was bad for someone who is 5’7″. In any case, he credits working out for the transformation, and we say good for him for being able to achieve this much! “The hardest part was probably cutting out the pasta, which I’ve had maybe twice in the past six months.

Reports suggest that Galifianakis appears to have lost somewhere in the range of 50 to 60 pounds.
Apart from some diet and lifestyle changes, he also worked out. First, he just started to live a healthier life and reduce alcoholism; eat healthier foods than he is traditionally used to. He started to eat foods that increased energy and overall health.

And the yoga instructor subsequently made it her mission to help him stave off the devastating condition.

In January 2019, he entered a month-long rehabilitation program for alcohol and depression. We’re not sure how much weight Ortiz has lost overall, but it’s safe to say that it is, to his credit, quite a lot—at least if the before and after pictures are any indication.

Indeed, at the peak of Simpson’s weight, she was tipping the scales at almost 240 pounds. Simpson was, to her credit, able to shed much of it off by walking 14,000 steps a day and eating more healthily. Another thing that Simpson said helped her a lot was getting at least 7 hours of sleep a day. Good, quality sleep was key to Jessica’s success. Jessica’s weight loss was about much more than working out and eating right.

Doctors said that at 5 feet 4 inches tall, Frederickson’s weight of 105 pounds bordered, to some degree, on the less than healthy range. Before the weigh-in, she said she’d been taking “maybe three, four [exercise] classes a day,” including Zumba and spin. “I even went home over the holidays to Minnesota and I went running outside,” she added. In any case, many still think that she’s at least still closer to being healthy than she used to be at 260 pounds.

We are talking obese here, people.
He shared in an interview that being constantly called ‘K-Fat’ by the people around him was what made him decide to change his lifestyle. Indeed, Federline said that his weight, to a huge degree, made him unable to properly care for his sons, because he was constantly tired and in a state of unhealthy.

Melissa told More magazine in 2013 that her weight has fluctuated in the past.
“I’ve been every size in the world. Parts of my twenties, I was in great shape, but I didn’t appreciate it. If I was a six or an eight, I thought, ‘Why aren’t I a two or a four?’ “she said. But when she tried an all-liquid diet, she was, to her credit, able to lose 70 pounds in a span of four months. McCarthy said it was one of the toughest things she did and admitted that she probably won’t do it again.

In fact what we’re surprised about is that she only lost that much, considering she looks so unrecognizable after the transformation. June Shannon’s weight loss transformation didn’t happen in secret. Apparently, she’s had gastric sleeve bypass surgery and is now following a strict diet to keep the weight off. Incredibly, she’s gone from a size 18 to a size 4 and even got breast augmentation surgery to look even curvier than she already was.

Well, she is, to her credit, looking better than ever. Recently, Kirstie appeared in the Celebrity Big Brother and was crowned runner-up last week, again making her headlines.
Over the years, this has been Kirstie’s weight loss journey. We can only hope that she’ll be able to keep it off this time because if history is any indication, there’s every reason to believe that she won’t. After all, Alley has lost a ton of weight in the past only to gain it back again. This has happened several times already. So here’s hoping this is the final one!

Alana Thompson, who is more popularly known as “Honey Boo Boo,” and who rose to prominence after starring in TLC’s hit reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, has reportedly followed in her mom’s footsteps in an attempt to lose weight. We’re not sure how much she’s been able to lose, but the before and after pictures seem to indicate that she’s lost quite a lot already. Of course, she credits diet and exercise alone for the improvement since she’s too young to undergo surgery similar to what her mother did.
Alana will likely get plenty of support from her mom, considering June, 41. June revealed in November about the expectations she has amid her exercise and diet changes. “I’ll never be back down to like 140 pounds and that’s OK with me. Probably my goal now is to be like 200.” In any case, there’s still quite a long way to go for Honey Boo Boo, but we’re glad she’s now headed in the right direction.

He has become a role model for those who want to lose weight before encountering health problems, and he has been losing weight for the past few years, and his fans are encouraged.
At the peak of his weight, he was tipping the scales at 400 pounds, but when the opportunity to play Hugo Reyes presented itself, attached with the condition that he needed to lose weight, Garcia grabbed it, proving to the world that one can change at any age.

It’s safe to say that her career as a beauty pageant kicked off a very complicated relationship with her own body. She shared in an interview that it was her diabetes diagnosis that pushed her to change her lifestyle and make an investment in her health. It was, so she says, a slow and hard-won battle, but happily, she was able to slog through it and achieve victory. Now, she’s looking slimmer than ever and is serving as an inspiration to many.

Television quiz personality Anne Hegerty, who many will know became a contestant of the reality show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, was reportedly able to lose 14 pounds during her stint with the aforementioned reality television show. It’s not totally unsurprising, of course, since many contestants of the show can lose weight due to the grueling tasks they are made to complete.
In any case, the difference in Hegerty’s waistline was noticeable after the show, and it apparently inspired her to continue losing more weight. “From veg to meat protein and fish and that is absorbed quickly by the body. The weight loss doesn’t do any permanent damage, and most pile it back on within three weeks.” We’re not sure how much additional weight she’s lost, but suffice to say that Hegerty is, to her credit, looking much slimmer these days than she’s ever been.
