Celebrity Weight Loss Journeys
Superheros and Sportstars all have amazing bodies that fans want. When celebrities have babies or start a dad-bod, it only takes a few months to lose. They’re back to their original shape and size, and it leaves the rest of us jealous.
Celebrities aren’t aliens. They’re not some out-of-this-world creatures that have superpowers of weight loss. They’re human, just like you and me.
Here’s a look at the celebrity secrets for weight loss that we share with our in-home personal training and onsite group fitness clients at JustHuynh for inspiration.
Weight Loss Surgery
Instead of being proactive, Gabourey Sidibe from Precious mentioned, “Having Type 2 diabetes, I struggled losing weight naturally for 10 years. Afraid of losing my toes from lower extremity amputations that can be a lifetime cost of $500,000, I went under the knife.” This is a lesson to be proactive with your health.
Hard Work and Determination
Weight loss is all about hard work and determination. Celebrities know that workouts are just as important as nutrition. Drew Carey host of the “Price is Right” show had Type 2 diabetes and mentioned “I was tired of health problems and carrying around extra weight. So I cut carbs and hit the gym religiously - dropping 80 pounds to overcome diabetes without medication.”
While you have the diet and exercise plan, you’re not just instantly going to start losing weight. Most celebrities have goals that they desperately want to achieve, whether it’s to get their post-baby figures back or make it easier to land movie roles. Start by setting some of your own weight loss goals. Decide what you want to get out of being healthy, whether it’s to lose a certain amount of pounds, drop a few dress sizes, play with your kids, or find love. Tennis Champion Billie Jean King mentioned, “As a tennis great, I’ve always been mindful of diet and exercise. When diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2007, I cut back on carbs and sugars. That’s not fun for a lot of people, but it sure is fun to feel good.”
Make Exercise a social event
Publicly share your journey for social accountability and motivation. Age is just a number as Carole Jensen proved it’s never too late to start being healthy again. At Age 60, Carole publicly admitted shame of being fat in local newspaper and documented her journey from fat (butterball) to fit (butterfly) that inspired 1,000 community members to train together with her.
Committing to exercise with someone else can help you stick with your fitness routine. Steve Harvey host of “Family Feud” said “My arms were just sitting there and I got tired of looking at myself with piece of meat hanging around. So I hired a trainer to slim down, eat right, and stopped whining about being too old to get in shape.”
