I will admit that over the years I could have been the spokesperson for yo-yo dieters all over the world. I could go as much as a year on a weight loss program, drop a ton of weigh, start an exercise regime and feel like a million bucks. But then I would always start to slide off the wagon. It could start with a pizza here, a bar of candy there and by the end of the week I am back to stuffing my face with unhealthy food. Only for me to repeat the process all over again, I do have a handle on my weight loss (well for not at least) but me and you are not the only yo-yo dieters. Today let’s look at some of the celebrities who have lost weight and then struggled to keep it off.
Celebrities’ Yo-Yo Weight Loss Stories : Claire Richards
Now if you are not from the UK you may not recognize her name, but Claire Richards made up part of UK pop super group Steps who were just huge in the 90’s. Clair Richards has struggled with her weight her whole career. During her days in steps she was as small as a size 8, but her weight would increase to a size 30. Over the years she has lost weight, gained it then lost it again. Now though she seems to have figured out a perfect balance and she looks so much healthier and happier. She is a prime example of that even if you lose your path on your weight loss journey you can always jump back on.
Celebrities’ Yo-Yo Weight Loss Stories : Jessica Simpson
Now here is a celebrity that the media were far too harsh on, Jessica Simpson lost a vast amount of weight and toned up for her role in the movie, Dukes Of Hazard. After the movie she did put a bit of weight on and had a child which did affect her weight loss, but now with her second child she is just happy being the shape that she is and not conforming to Hollywood’s idea of what “thin” is. Jessica Simpson is a great example of being happy with the body that you have and losing weight because you want to, not because of what other people say about you.
Celebrities’ Yo-Yo Weight Loss Stories : Christina Aguilera
Here is a lady who cannot seem to win! Christina Aguilera has been on both sides of the weight loss spectrum during her career, with people either saying she is too thin or to fat. Such harsh and hurtful words, but at least she never let it get her down. And she now is at a size where she feels comfortable and does not care what anyone else thinks of her. As long as you are happy with your weight loss then that is all that matters. This is an attitude that we all should take when we are losing weight.
Celebrities’ Yo-Yo Weight Loss Stories : Ethan Suplee
So you guys do not feel left out, here is My Name Is Earl actor, Ethan Suplee. Ethan for the majority of his career has been cast as “cuddly” characters. But back in 2011 he had a fantastic weight loss. If you look at a picture of him from 2002 and then one from 2011 the difference is astounding, he lost around 200 pounds! He did not do this with some crazy fad diet either. He just started to eat better and started to ride his bicycle for exercise. This is something that we all can do. While he has put weight back on recently, he has shown that he clearly knows how to work it back off.
