amfAR Inspiration Gala Los Angeles - Arrivals

We give celebrities a hard time for being too thin.  Then we give them a hard time about putting on a few pounds after the holidays.  Then it’s about losing their baby weight too quickly or about not losing their baby weight quickly enough.   We even point out their recent lunch indulgence with captions stating that this could be a baby bump; celebrities don’t have it easy when it comes to their bodies.  However, some celebrities have gone through the gamut with their bodies, losing a lot of weight and changing their appearance once and for all. Read on to find out which 12 celebrities have lost a lot of weight and look better than ever.

Star Jones

People seem to love to dislike this former View co-host and Celebrity Apprentice contestant, and with her attitude, it’s not hard to figure out why.  She’s never confirmed the exact amount of weight she lost, but it’s been thought she lost upwards of 50 pounds. However, Star Jones wasn’t about to become one of those celebrities whose time in the limelight was wasted; she decide to lose weight and do it fast.

Kelly Osbourne

The Fashion Police host was once a slightly chubby, shabbily dressed celebutante who was more likely to be featured on Fashion Police than she was to be a host. However, after losing enough weight to change her body around, changing her style and becoming more glam than ever, she’s looking great.

He’s made a career of himself being a jolly man with a big personality and plenty of laughs, but after recently stepping out at a Hollywood event looking like half the man he once was, it’s easy to feel good about his weight loss. He’s got to be much healthier and happier with his new found body.

Sara Rue

Let’s get something straight; Sara Rue was not that big a girl. She may have had a few more pounds on her in recent years than she currently does, but she was not obese or anything like that. She’s always been lovely; she’s just a little smaller than she was a few years ago with what appears to be a 20 something pound weight loss.

When this famous blonde was pregnant with her first child just two years ago, she gained a lot of weight.
