Nothing seems to stop the pressure to be skinny for one to look good these days. Good ole tinsel town has seen one too many transformations of celebrities that have gone from luscious beauties to just pieces of muscle, skin and bones wrapped in designer clothing.
And although we’re all gung ho about looking healthy, it just leads you to question what does looking beautiful and healthy really mean for these Hollywood celebrities. Does it mean weighing less than 100lbs? Or wearing a size 0? Or getting all those muscles to show on camera?
True enough we’ve seen a lot of these Hollywood women morphing into svelte figures over the years and as short as a month they can just turn into a stick figure with little lady lumps and bumps. Whether roles have forced them to take that extra effort to lose weight or just plain glamour pressure that can be unforgiving for any celebrity whose every bulge and curve gets scrutinized by the public eye.
Well, these women can be real inspirations for us average beings . Knowing that we can transform ourselves into almost any shape and take on a whole new life sans the excess baggage. Then again, not everyone can afford personal trainers, fancy diet food or get into weight loss boot camps. But, we still get to live through our fave celebrities who are just as vulnerable to binging and excess adipose tissue.
Here are some Hollywood Weightloss Wonders :
Renee’ Zellweger – Just amazing how this woman was able to yoyo diet to epitomize the characters she played in her much raved about movies.
Carnie Wilson – Nothing but pure admiration for her courageous decision to undergo gastric bypass after years of just embracing who she is and her many great talents.
Kirstie Alley – now who didn’t just have big love for this woman? Having a gorgeous face and a quirky personality was all she needed that made her a big beautiful woman, that had everyone watch her awesome transformation.
Mariah Carey – post baby bumps and lumps didn’t slow down this diva to get back into top performance shape. However much she admitted to having “some issues” , she certainly pulled through looking like a very hot momma!
Nicole Richie – watching Nicole seriously drop some poundage left many people in shock as she became disturbingly waif. Although she’s now looking much more in normal range of body mass, we all guess momma-hood has brought out the best in her.
Lindsay Lohan – we’ve seen her during her peachy teenage years and having blossomed into a troubled young woman, it’s not surprising that she would go through some weight issues as well. Her nearly stick figure was due to a habit of not eating at all.
Courtney Love – her Celebrity Skin days have long passed and all that’s left is indeed, some celebrity skin on her abdominal area. We don’t really know how she lost weight, but we’ve got a lot of raised eyebrows as to the type of regimen she had subjected herself to lose so much weight.

Look who’s joining the reality TV bandwagon. The now 59-year-old actress is making a TV comeback with Kirstie Alley’s Big Life. It’s a reality show about—you guessed it—her much-publicized battle with weight loss, her life as a single mother raising her teens, True and Lillie, and the perils of being in the Hollywood spotlight.
“This show has been cathartic for me… shown me who I really am… again,” Kirstie told OK! Magazine, “And it’s really freaking funny.” The comedienne is known for her roles in TV sitcoms such as Cheers (1987-1993) and Veronica’s Closet (1997-2000), as well as movies such as Look Who’s Talking (1989).
I wonder if Jenny Craig will be delivering packed meals to Kirstie’s house.
Kirstie Alley’s Big Life will premiere on March 21st at 10pm ET/PT on A&E with back-to-back episodes.
