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…)
Kelly Osbourne, daughter or rock legend Ozzy Osbourne, has a few secrets to reveal yet about her 60-plus pound weight loss. The lavender-haired star is gracing the cover of UK’s Cosmopolitan Body due out December 27, looking slim and toned in a revealing bikini. In an interview with the publication Osbourne, 28, revealed the one simple trick behind her trim physique and healthier outlook on life: Self love.
“People think I lost weight and that’s what made me happier. That’s not true: I had to learn to love myself first,” she said. “Losing weight was just one benefit of putting the hard work in and sorting myself out on the inside first through therapy.”
Osbourne’s outward transformation began in 2009 during her stint on Dancing with the Stars when she experienced a 50 pound weight loss. In an interview with Shape Magazine the star said was able to drop down to a size 2 thanks to a high-protein, low-carb diet in addition to a vigorous dance schedule and weight training. “I can’t believe I just did that and my body looks this good,” she told Shape.
To lose the weight Osbourne admits there was no one simple trick and it was all about getting to the gym and eating right. As reported by People Magazine, the fashionista is watchful of her diet and enjoys indulgences like pizza and chocolate cake in moderation. She also commits to doing something active every day.

The woman made famous for her amazing voice has been getting much more attention lately for her voluptuous figure. Thirty-one-year old performer and mother Christina Aguilera is much curvier than she was when she first burst onto the scene as a teenage singing sensation in 1998.
Earlier this year, Christina was slammed for her weight after making concert appearances in scantily clad ensembles revealing a much curvier figure. Specifically, she drew much attention for her appearance at the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert after uncomfortably donning a tight corset and fishnet stockings during her performance.
The star admitted to drinking more after going through her divorce from former husband of five years, Jordan Bratman, and being lax on her diet.
Her poor diet choices and junk food binge eating slip-ups added up to lots of extra calories and plenty of weight gain. As a result, Aguilera’s weight has fluctuated drastically over the last several years.
Proof of this came just months after her Michael Jackson Tribute appearance when she was photographed looking much slimmer and seemingly “back on track” in terms of her health and her size. (more…)
Christina Aguilera has been one of the celebrities who seems to be stuck in the ups and downs of weight cycling. Within the past year, she has gotten flack about her weight gain.
She really got attention at the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert for her larger size after she wore a tight corset and fishnet stockings. Her poor choice brought on some tough criticism and a new nickname, “snookitina.” As you an imagine, this news exploded all over the internet.
It has been reported from other websites including The Huffington Post, the star has seemed to be going through a rough patch. There was of course the awful wardrobe choice at the Michael Jackson’s tribute concert, the odd looking headband she repeatedly wore during the tapings of The Voice, and her unfortunate tanner malfunction.
Aguilera has had to deal with tough comments from Howard Stern saying she was “plus-size” and Kelly Osbourne who said that she never got as fat as her. Even after all the harsh and cruel comments, she has defended herself saying she was “very confident” about her body–a very good message (more…)
Superstar singers face loads of pressure when it comes to their image, weight and overall appearance. How much confidence does it take to say publicly that you are “OK” with your size, no matter what it may be? These superstars defend the body they have now and their right to be happy with their image.
Superstar Christina Aguilera admits that she is happy in her own skin and goes on to say that as long as her boyfriend is happy with her body and she is happy with her body, that’s all that matters. The rest is just noise that she blocks out.
UK Singer Adel
One of the most popular artists right now, Adel, says that she doesn’t really care what other people think about her weight or the way she looks. She’s happy the way she is. She also said that she’s seen other people obsess over wanting to be thinner and how it wears them down. She doesn’t want that in her life.

As much debate as there is out there about the weight of celebrities, there’s no denying some of our most beloved of actors, comedians, and singers need to hone in their eating habits. Here are a few celebrities we love that we want to see eat healthier and lose some extra pounds in 2012.
Undoubtedly one of today’s most powerful voices, Christina Aguilera has been in the public eye since her teenage years, and as is the case with any star, so has her weight. The pop star has had many weight fluctuations throughout her career, although they haven’t been as extreme as others. We want to see this beauty in her best shape in 2012.
Most recently seen in Bridesmaids but most well known as Sookie St. James on Gilmore Girls, Melissa McCarthy is one of the most lovable (and most hilarious) actresses out there. In an interview with Anderson Cooper on his daytime talk show McCarthy said “It’s a work in progress,” also mentioning how hard it is to balance two kids at 41 and manage her weight. Her priorities are elsewhere for now, but hopefully the actress can make time for her body in the new year.
Christina Aguilera has been getting slammed lately regarding her recent weight gain. Along with the media spotlighting her extra pounds, Kelly Osbourne is jumping in with her own feedback.
It’s no secret that these two have gone back and forth about weight and now Kelly Osbourne is getting her revenge. “She called me fat for years,” Osbourne recently stated on E! Fashion Police. This recent tirade is the second time in two months that Kelly has lashed out at Christina regarding her figure. “She called me fat for so many years. So you know what? You’re fat too,” Kelly said in September.
All of this negative weight publicity stems from Christina’s recent appearance at a Michael Jackson tribute concert where she wore a tight and unflattering outfit that showed off her larger physique.
Osbourne lost 48 pounds while she was competing on Dancing with the Stars in 2009 and has managed to keep most of the weight off. She did regain one dress size back in March and made a commitment to hit the gym to lose that weight.
It seems that every other week there is news of a celebrity gaining or losing weight. Pictures surface and people marvel at how much weight some celebrity has lost or gained in a short amount of time. Oddly enough, the media is never satisfied, and despite which direction the scale tilts, the feedback is usually negative.
Unfortunately, Christina Aguilera is making headlines for gaining a significant amount of weight. The pounds were noticed when Christina recently performed at a Michael Jackson tribute concert and appeared in a tight corset and fishnet stockings. Her choice of outfit brought a lot of attention to her figure, which was curvier than it has been in the past. As you can imagine, the blogs exploded. Although Christina received high praise for her vocals in the performance, her physical appearance got much more buzz.
Something that is often not considered when it comes to celebrities and weight fluctuations is that they, too, deal with issues in their personal lives. Just like the rest of us, Christina has to deal with struggles of everyday life, although hers are much more public. Aguilera is recently divorced and has been battling alcohol problems, so the fact that she may be turning to food to cope shouldn’t come as a big shock.
