John Goodman – 100 lbs the natural way!
“John Goodman’s weight loss he says is put down to the fact that he spent so much of his life wondering what to eat next and he feels it was such a waste to spent time doing this when he could be doing something more creative. So how did the John Goodman weight loss occur? He started off by quitting drinking 3 years ago now, and then he hired Mackie Shilstone – a coach who has trained athletes from all over the world, but most notably Serena Williams. We can’t all afford to hire world class coaches however and so he has shared a few tips with us. Firstly, he has cut absolutely all the sugar from his diet (as sugar is a big contributor to weight gain) and he hits the gym 6 days a week. Goodman says the gym isn’t a massive workout every week but he does break a slight sweat and this really helps with his weight loss (source).
Jonah Hill Loses 30 pounds
SO how did Jonah make the change??? He adopted a new mindset! While it sounds as simple as turning on and off a light switch, it’s a huge struggle to over come unhealthy eating patterns that have plagued you for years! Originally, Hill just wanted to lose weight to look better along side other actors such as Channing Tatum.
Stars are people too! After setting out to lose weight, Jonah actually gained weight! Frustrated, he enlisted the help of a nutritionist and personal trainer. His advice to others trying to lose is … if you can’t do it on your own as for help!
Hill told the Los Angeles Times this;
“If I eat something unhealthy now, I kind of feel a little weird and my body hurts.”
If you have ever cut out junk food or fast food for long periods of time and then tried to reintroduce it, you would know that Jonah speaks the truth!!! Personally, my joints will ache in my hands, and knees. Ditch the junk, ditch the pain!!
Robert Lost With Good ‘Ol Exercise – Insanity Weight Loss Before and After
Robert Used the “Insanity” Workout DVDs to get back in shape after tipping the scales at over 300 pounds!
” I had been fluctuating in weight between 289 and 295, and as recently as July of last year had weighed in at 307 pounds. Looking at the exercises in the Insanity program I thought it was reasonable to expect a significant weight loss over the course of nine weeks, so I set a weight loss goal of 40 pounds. That meant that as of the end of my ninth week I wanted to weigh 250 pounds.
Today I am happy to say that I have hit that goal. I weighed in this morning at 249.5 pounds and I am beyond excited at the prospects this presents. I have so much more energy now than I did nine weeks ago. I have a zeal for living life again. I feel like I have earned my life back and that my health, fitness and weight is now something that is totally within my control as opposed to me being controlled by it (source).”
A Big Congratulations goes out to Robert from Fit Tip Daily!!! We hope you continue on in your fitness goals!
Janet Jackson- Weight Loss Before and After Nutri System
Hollywood life had this to say about Janet Jackson’s weight loss before and after Nutri System
“Janet hasn’t disclosed just how much weight she’s lost on Nutrisystem, but judging from these before and after photos, plus the video below, it’s 50 or more pounds! The 45-year-old singer is notorious for drastically gaining and losing weight, but we’re pretty sure she’s never looked better at this point. In fact, in 2006 she was her heaviest at 180 pounds, which is quite large for her 5’4″ frame.
No matter how rich you are, or how much help you “could” get it doesn’t shield you from weight issues. Janet’s long time struggle with her weight proves to the public that if she can do it, you can do it!!
Weight Loss Before and After Photos From Curvy Goddess Lounge – Website
” Real women, real curves, real weight loss”
” I finally understand that my level of knowledge, understanding, love, and appreciation for my body gets deeper as I progress along my path. The desire for goals of “weight loss in 7 days” or “lose 10 pounds before my class reunion” are trivial. I am proud of where I stand.”
“In her before and after weight loss image it doesn’t give you details of Sandra’s challenges. She has gone off course and got back on many times. She has been frustrated and defiant but she never quits. And for sure she has learned so much from all of her falling off the wagon. I know that she will reach her ultimate goal. Her courage transcends her fears and for that I dub her The Curvy Goddess Warrior Princess (source).”
We hope that these pictures and stories have helped to put some wind back in your sails!!! If a picture is worth a 1,000 words then these weight loss before and after images have a lot to say!!! It’s almost as if you can see the doubt, self hate, pain, and low self esteem wash away with every pound that these people lost.

Take your like back, one decision at a time.
