Jessica Simpson Flaunts Her Weight Loss Success In Daisy Dukes

As a spokesperson for the diet program Weight Watchers, which helped her lose 50 pounds in baby weight, it’s Jessica’s responsibility to be a walking example that the program works, and when she officially reached her goal weight on March 6, we knew she had been serious about sticking to the calorie-counting and achieving real results.

And when she stepped out on March 23 in Calabasas to head to a Sunday lunch at Fish restaurant, we got the proof we’d been waiting for — her weight-loss maintenance is right on track! She is clearly doing whatever she needs to to make sure she doesn’t lose the results she worked so hard for. Way to go Jess!

The “With You” singer and hot mama, 33, flaunted her long, toned legs in the iconic denim cut-offs, and paired them with a blue quilt-pattern button-down-shirt layered over a baggy, white tee.

‘Biggest Loser’: Uproar as winner appears ‘too thin’ at 105 pounds

February 5th, 2014


Did You Diet?

Rachel Frederickson, 24, of Los Angeles won the Season 15 title of “The Biggest Loser” and the $250,000 grand prize, but promptly sparked criticism from viewers who say the show went too far by allowing the former competitive swimmer to diet her way down to 105 pounds.

Frederickson started the competition at 260 pounds and lost 155 pounds, or 59.62% of her body weight.

When the voice-over artist first walked on stage at the finale of NBC’s reality weight-loss TV show, she did so to oohs and ahhs. She was wearing a diaphanous silver dress that skimmed her new figure and all but signaled that victory would soon be hers.

But as she came into sharper view, it was clear that Frederickson was dramatically thinner than the last time viewers saw her, winning “The Biggest Loser” triathlon.

The cameras turned to trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michael, who seemed to be clapping in slow motion as they looked her over, their eyes appearing to reflect surprise at her appearance. (See the third image in the photo gallery above, a TV screen grab that is making the rounds on social media.)

Frederickson came into the show with a heartbreaking backstory. She was a competitive high school swimmer who gave up a full college scholarship to follow her boyfriend to Europe. The relationship ended, and Frederickson came home full of regrets and ate to tamp down her sorrows.

She said she gained more than 100 pounds and had trouble recognizing herself in the mirror.

Earlier in the season, Frederickson said that winning the show would allow her to reclaim the champion within and embrace an empowered new future. Week after week in the weight-loss competition, she proved what a fierce competitor she was and was all but destined for a spot in the finale.

Frederickson is slated to speak to the media Wednesday morning during a conference call, and will no doubt be asked about her weight.

Regardless, the finale is sure to add fuel to the show’s critics who question the safety of the measures it uses and the ethics of grueling weight-loss regimens as entertainment.

In the meantime, many viewers have taken to Twitter to express their fears that Frederickson has become too thin, and to call on the show and the network to address concerns that the weight loss was too extreme:

Not everyone agreed, however, as some social media pundits noted that Frederickson was in it to win the game and will now be able to put a little weight back on, as many past contestants have done. Still others praised her transformation.

Debate over Frederickson’s appearance seems to have overshadowed — at least for the moment — the stellar transformations of many of the other competitors, including “American Idol” winner Ruben Studdard, who took to the stage to show off his sleek new physique and his new single. (He lost 119 pounds, or 25.76% of his body weight.)

Other top performers included David Brown and Bobby Saleem, the two finalists vying with Frederickson for the top prize. They lost 54.28% and 52.51% of their body weight, respectively, far less than Frederickson. The winner of the at-home prize was Tumi Oguntala, 41, of New York, who started the show at 319 pounds and lost 175 pounds, or 54.86% of her body weight, to end the show at 144 pounds. From latimes.

Miranda Lambert is red-hot at Grammys: Her weight loss, diet and workout tips

January 29th, 2014


Did You Diet?

Miranda Lambert looked incredible in a form-fitting red evening gown at the 2014 Grammy Awards Jan. 26, where her dramatic weight loss turned heads.

Lambert credited a portion-controlled diet and rigorous cardio workouts for her stunning weight loss. “My wife is so hot it’s ridiculous,” gushed her proud husband, country superstar Blake Shelton.

Miranda recently slammed rumors she underwent weight-loss surgery to lose over 25 pounds, saying eating less and doing circuit-training workouts combined with cardio exercise helped her lose over two dress sizes.

“I did not have surgery to lose weight,” she said. “That is ridiculous. I lost my weight the healthy and good-old fashioned way: Watching what I eat and working out with my trainer Bill Crutchfield.

“Smaller portions help. I haven’t given up everything! I try to just cut everything in half. We do cardio and a lot of circuit-training.”

Lambert first made headlines after debuting her stunning weight loss at the 2013 CMA Awards in November 2013. She said she was shocked at the amount of attention she received for her slim-down, because she didn’t think anyone noticed.

“I didn’t know until [the CMA Awards] that people were noticing,” said Miranda. “But you want people to notice when you’ve worked hard and feel good. That’s part of the reward. It’s a great motivator.”

Lambert said her unhealthy junk-food diet during her twenties resulted in dramatic weight fluctuations, but decided to overhaul her diet and workout regimen when she turned 30 (in November 2013).

“Now it’s time to be responsible,” she said. “I spent my twenties on a roller coaster — my yo-yo weight, working all the time and partying. I just wanted to get healthier and go into my thirties in the best shape I could be in.”
