Reality Star Kimora Lee Simmons Talks About Her Recent 30lb Weight Loss

14 May

Kimora Lee Simmons is back to talk about her recent weight loss – let’s hear her out:

You look amazing! Have you reached your goal?

I don’t know if I ever had a goal. I was just trying to lose some of the baby weight I’d gained when I was pregnant. Kenzo was a year old and I was thinking about getting my life back. Now the baby is almost 2, and I’ve lost about 30 pounds since last fall.

Does it bother you to see photos from when you were heavier?

Well, I’d just had a baby! I’m not bothered about it. I don’t live my life with that pressure. I’m a mother, a wife, a businesswoman. I’m not an actress, so I don’t have that life where I have to be on stage. I have the TV show, I’m into production and I develop businesses. I don’t feel like I have to be a size 2. I’m beautiful. When I was pregnant, I was probably like a 10 1/2, but I don’t really know. That would be a guess, and now I’m more like a size 6. But I always feel sexy.

If I’m pregnant, I feel like I’m bringing a life into this world and I feel like that’s beautiful as well. Now I’m thinner and that’s a different kind of sexy – but it’s always sexy.

What is your diet-and-exercise routine?

I do very easy things. Running after a 1-year-old really will do it, and I have three kids. I do a little cardio every day, and it doesn’t have to be on a machine. I sometimes take a walk. I try to do it for a minimum of 30 minutes a day. I stopped eating junk food, like chips and candy. It’s about timing, portion control and eating healthy foods that fill you up.

What was the hardest part of losing weight?

Not eating all the great things I love, as if we had really broken up! And even now, I’ll have a little bread. I am not neurotic about it. I don’t do things that I can’t maintain as party of a normal lifestyle… It’s all about moderation and making substitutions. For example, I have cut back on my dairy and I don’t eat so much fattening red meat.

Actress Raven Symone Shows Off Her New Body 35lbs. Lighter

3 May

Once proud to call herself “thick and fabulous,” actress Raven-Symone showed off her smaller size at the 2011 People’s Choice Awards this week.

Symone may have gone to a smaller size, but the former “Cosby Show” starlet, who has reportedly lost 35 pounds, never thought her fuller figure was a problem. In fact, she embraced her heavy. “I thought I looked fabulous before, and nobody else did,” she told PEOPLE. “So, whatever.”

Though in our eyes she’s fabulous at any size, take a look at the sassy 25-year-old’s weight-loss journey.


MTV Realty Star: Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi Slims Down

21 Apr

Twitter Pic

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has slimmed down. But how did the reality star lose weight — the “17-Day-Diet?” “Dukan Diet?” JWoww better look out; there’s a new sheriff in town, and she is thin.

She’s no longer the half-pint overweight lover of the high-flying MTV reality television series.

She’s frequently the butt of the jokes on late night television like “Letterman,” but the chick with the attitude is having the last laugh.

She’s been battling weight issues since high school, and at one point was rumored to be down to 80-pounds. The eating disorder, just like the one Disney’s Demi Lovato is battling currently, nearly consumed her.

But the 23-year-old Seaside Heights diva made a promise to work on her weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

It appears she made the right choices by the photo. Fans were beginning to wonder where she was, except when she made a few cameo appearances recently.

Here’s the slim-downed tweet to her fans:

“Ready for Summaaa!!! Water is my new best friend. #dieting.”

With the new body, the “Jersey Shore” star can concentrate on life away from Seaside Heights in her upcoming series with co-star, JWoww, due out in 2012.

As far as how Snooki lost the weight and trimmed down her body, it appears the “17-Day Diet” or the “Dukan Diet” was not part of the plan. Looks like plain ole water did the trick, sort of. Or maybe water has replaced gin and juice?


What do you think about Snooki’s new weight loss?

Singer Jessica Simpson Loses 20 lbs. In 2 Months

19 Apr

Jessica Simpson is looking as fabulous as ever, but she’s definitely carrying a few pounds less. Amidst talk that she’s on her way to her former fit and toned figure, comes a report saying she lost 20 pounds in less than 2 months.

Anything Hollywood notes that Simpson is looking thinner than she did a short while ago, which means her new diet and workout routine are paying off.

“Simpson has definitely slimmed down a lot. We have been writing about Jessica wanting to shed pounds before her actual wedding, if that’s true, looks like mission accomplished!” the e-zine says.

On the other hand, knowing that Simpson is now working out with no other than Tracy Anderson, whose celebrity clients also include the likes of Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow, that she lost weight is not that much of a surprise.

What is surprising though is learning that she dropped about 20 pounds in less than 2 months, as this blog writes, citing the print issue of Star magazine.

“She looks incredible. You can really see the difference in her face in that it looks thinner and more angular. Star Magazine estimates that she’s lost 20 pounds in a couple of months already, and it’s definitely possible,” CB writes.

“We know she’s been working out and dieting, although she’s trying to downplay how important it is to her. Good for her for getting healthy for her wedding, which may or may not happen soon,” the blogger adds.

Admittedly, Jessica has worked hard to lose the weight: she’s on a 1,600-calorie diet (which most certainly means no junk food, which she loves so much) and works out up to six times a week.

Photos of her coming and leaving the gym are available online and their sheer number should confirm that, indeed, she does spend a lot of time there.

Anderson has her doing 100-minute sessions of cardio and strength training, in a bid to help her get back in top shape for the wedding, it is being said.

Whatever the reason Jessica has decided to lose weight by working out more, it’s good to see it’s working.


Summary: Here are some photos of Jessica Simpson out on 3/26 and she looks incredible.

You can really see the difference in her face in that it looks thinner and more angular. Star Magazine estimates that she’s lost 20 pounds in a couple of months already, and it’s definitely possible.

(They have a comparison photo from early January.) We know she’s been working out and dieting, although she’s trying to downplay how important it is to her. Good for her for getting healthy for her wedding, which may or may not happen soon.

Star claims that Jess is doing “up to six 100 minute-sessions” of cardio and strength training and that she’s eating 1,600 calories a day. That sounds too sensible for someone working with Tracy Anderson.

Kelly Osbourne On Cover of Shape Magazine In A Red Bikini

18 Nov

A long road and many battle’s later Kelly Osbourne fights her way back through all that weight she’s lost!

50 pounds later, and living a life in a body that you come to hate.

Not loving and respecting yourself because others take power from your being. Just because you don’t fit society’s standards. It’s what put Kelly back on the map.

Kelly Osbourne grace’s cover with a red bikini in next month’s Shape magazine, and it was a photo shoot that had her in tears!

After the shoot, done last month, Kelly tweeted “I just got done trying all the bikinis on I have never worn one in my life! I had a little tears of joy moment in the bathroom! I cried in my interview I just can’t believe today happened it your not going to believe ur eyes!”

After a life-long battle with her weight and eating disorders, Kelly Osbourne, is now healthy, confident and gorgeous.

Kelly rock’s a red bikini on the December cover of Shape Magazine . She also share’s personal stories about growing up with weight issues.

“I was called fat and ugly in the press almost my entire life,” Osbourne,says. “I understand that being judged by others comes with the territory, but it broke my heart and ruined my self esteem.

It sets you up to hate yourself in a huge way. I was so angry about the things people said about me. I truly believe it’s the main reason I turned to Vicodin and ended up in rehab three times. I just hated myself.”

Now loving her new body and her healthy life she is happy and at peace where she is in her life at the moment.

So nice to see her happy and loving her new lifestyle of health and wellness.

The new issue of Shape drops November 22.

I love Shape magazine!
