Most Americans make the same promise to themselves at the new year, and it doesn’t matter if you live on Main St. or Hollywood Blvd. We all want to lose weight, look fitter, and feel stronger, and the celebrity set isn’t any different from us, except that they do it under the watchful guise of millions. That’s why we want to celebrate the weight loss efforts of a few of these stars.
As we close out the first quarter of the year, several have posted positive returns on those weight loss resolution investments!
CeeLo Green is down more than 12 pounds toward a 50 pound goal since launching the new year as a spokesman for eDiets. When we spoke to the company’s marketing team earlier this year they said CeeLo’s goal was to improve his health and not fixate on a number. The meal-delivery service seems to be a perfect addition to this busy singer’s life. (more…)
Everyone’s favorite pint-sized Jersey Shore star, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, is showing off her slender post-baby body just one month after giving birth to son Lorenzo Dominic LaVelle on August 26.
The star stepped out with friends over the weekend in a figure-hugging black and animal-print dress. Though she was reportedly adverse to breastfeeding at first, she’s now embracing it for the sake of Lorenzo’s health and as a means to slim down.
Snooki, 24, has been active on Twitter about her weight loss since giving birth. On September 21, the star tweeted, “exactly why I’m at the gym right now #postbabyworkout …#FatPig.” Earlier that day she wrote, “can’t wait to start walking again!”
It seems Snooki is enthusiastic about getting her pre-baby body back quickly, and has wasted no time getting back to work as a new mom. The star is currently filming the MTV Jersey Shore spin-off Snooki & JWOWW, which she mentioned on Twitter is the reason she uses a pump now instead of breastfeeding naturally. (more…)
The reality star’s spokesperson confirmed back in March that she and fiancé, Jionni LaValle, are expecting. Since then, Snooki’s remained active on Twitter interacting with users about how her pregnancy is going – some supportive, some not.
One user reportedly joked, “I keep hearing you’re going to birth a Dorito,” in mockery of her overly-tanned body. Un-phased, Snooki sarcastically replied, “Or a Cheeto.” One of the other more brash comments from the 24-year-old was that if anyone gets in her way, she’s not above hurting a b****. (more…)
The news that Jersey Shore’s Snooki is pregnant has people asking questions about the impact of eating disorders on pregnancy and post-natal weight loss. Every individual is different and how they have (or have not ) processed and healed from the eating disorder will determine how and to what degree they manage the weight gain of pregnancy and weight loss after the child is born.
Snooki has admitted to a dangerous bout of anorexia during high school. She has used the unbalanced Cookie Diet to help her lose weight and seems to continue to lower her goal weight. Eating disorders impact two major aspects of pregnancy – weight gain and lack of control. Weight gain may be more obvious, but despite all our efforts much about what pregnancy does to a woman’s body and how a pregnancy evolves is outside of our control.
A clearly caring eating disorders treatment specialist Christel Parker, LMFT stated, “while pregnant, women who have struggled with eating disorders often share how their changing bodies, hormones and weight gain can ramp up symptoms of their illness. That said, being pregnant and having a child can be an unparalleled motivator in the recovery process. I’ve seen many times how this motivation develops into courage and strength throughout pregnancy and after giving birth.” While pregnancy can complicate the major issues involved in an eating disorder, pregnancy can also provide the existential motivation for a women to change behaviors and find healing, placing the health of her child ahead of her own health.
Jersey Shore star Snooki recently tweeted a number of pin-up worthy shots of herself looking awfully thin. The star admitted that she struggled with anorexia in the past, and we can’t help but worry that her rapid weight loss could be due to some less-than-healthy habits. It’s often said that people who are diagnosed with anorexia and similar eating disorders will struggle with the disease for the rest of their lives.
The four-foot-nine celeb once said that her goal weight is 85 pounds, which is the lowest weight that could be considered healthy for someone her height. This is also only five pounds more than her lowest weight in high school, which she admits was dangerous. We hope she’ll know when to stop for the sake of her health, although moderation isn’t something we associate with Snooki.
