3. Kevin Smith

Six months after suffering from a massive heart attack, the famed director Kevin Smith announced on Instagram that he had lost 51 pounds.

“This wasn’t a diet: these results came from a total lifestyle change of eating solely plant-based foods (which is tough because I hate vegetables),” Smith wrote in his caption. “Never underestimate the power of positive feedback: you folks telling me I looked better or healthier helped me stick with it. An encouraging word can really make a difference in someone’s life and your compliments kept me going!”

This @weightwatchers Ambassador is thrilled to announce that I’VE LOST 51 POUNDS! Six months ago from right now, I was in the hospital recovering from a heart attack I’d had the night before. When I went to my Doctor a week later, she told me “The best thing you can do for yourself now is to lose 50 pounds.” Half a year later, I can report that I followed Doctor’s orders: I started at 256 and now I weigh 205. This is the lightest I’ve been since high school! My hope now is I can slowly lose another 10 with #weightwatchers and get down to my birth weight of 195! But for now, I’m ecstatic to have reached this chunky milestone! I wanna thank #pennjillette for his book #presto, @raycronise for getting me started with his potato famine, and the good folks at #weightwatchers for their app-based program that made it easy to keep track of and control my eating! And I also wanna thank my kid @harleyquinnsmith – the little vegan astronaut who explored this meatless/milkless galaxy ahead of me, leading by example. Since I never wanted to see the inside of a hospital ever again, I simply copied the Kid. So this wasn’t a diet: these results came from a total lifestyle change of eating solely plant-based foods (which is tough because I hate vegetables). But mostly, I wanna thank all of you as well – for the kind and encouraging words along the way. Never underestimate the power of positive feedback: you folks telling me I looked better or healthier helped me stick with it. An encouraging word can really make a difference in someone’s life and your compliments kept me going! And just look where I went! #KevinSmith #WWambassador #WWFreestyle #WWFamily #WWBros #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #WWCommunity #ad *People following the Weight Watchers program can expect to lose 1-2lbs per week.

4. Kelly Clarkson

In a June interview with “The Today Show,” Clarkson revealed she had been dealing with an autoimmune disease and an issue with her thyroid. She said revamping her diet with the help of Steven Gundry’s book, “The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in ‘Healthy’ Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain” helped eradicate her thyroid problem.

“Here’s the best part, ya’ll, it’s not even the weight- I mean, I know the industry loves the weight gone, but I mean, for me, it wasn’t really the weight,” she said. “For me it was like, I’m not on my medicine anymore. My blood work came back and I haven’t been on my medicine since like February.”

5. Blake Lively

Blake Lively worked hard to lose weight after giving birth to her second daughter, Inez. The actress revealed she gained 61 pounds while pregnant and worked with a trainer for over a year to get back to where she started. 

“It took me 14 months, but I fit in PVC now,” Lively told E! at the New York Fashion Week in February, referring to the vinyl trench coat she was wearing. “But, it’s also OK if you don’t. If that’s not a priority or a goal of yours, then that’s fine, too.”

She also shared a photo on Instagram with her trainer. 

“Turns out you can’t lose the 61 lbs you gained during pregnancy by just scrolling through instagram and wondering why you don’t look like all the bikini models,” she wrote.
