Mariah Carey: “I Empathize With Women Who Have To Lose Weight”

Shape Magazine May 2012

Most women gain some weight during their pregnancy. But Mariah Carey seemed to gain a whole lot more. After giving birth to twins in April 2011, Mariah Carey managed to lose 30 lbs and got down to a healthy US size 6 (UK size 10). The star credits Jenny Craig’s structured eating plan for her weight-loss success, along with a workout routine that helps her stay toned. Gracing the cover of Shape Magazine in tiny shorts and a crop top, she told the magazine:

“I put on 70 lbs. but if you look at me in pictures you’d think it was more like 9,000 lbs. I have a lot of empathy with people who have to lose a lot of weight.” Mariah also talked about the mental struggle to lose so much weight, telling Shape, “I remember thinking at the time: ‘I’ll never look or feel the same again.’”

Lindsay Lohan in Bikini: Now and Then

Lindsay Lohan in Bikini: Now and Then

Lindsay Lohan is definitely not the only one in female Hollywood who has been battling with her weight (in the past).  We probably all remember the pictures of an ultraskinny Lindsay Lohan in a white dress back in 2005. A year later she gained some weight and looked much healthier. But in 2008 it seemed that she was shedding the pounds again. I’m glad though that these days she’s back to a more natural size. It seems Lindsay gained most weight on the upper-part of her body and her booty and hips, because her belly is actually still quite flat. What do you think of the comparison? Did she looked better then or now?

Olivia Newton-John: Now And Then

Olivia Newton-John has sparked debate as to whether or not she’s had a little help rolling back the years. The Grease beauty was seen on Loose Women (UK) this week to discuss her new cookbook LivWise. But the stark juxtaposition between her crow’s feet around her eyes, compared to a completely wrinkle-free forehead didn’t quite sit right as they were in extreme contrast. What do you think? Did Olivia had a little help from the Botox fairy? But before you judge, check out more pictures after the jump! Continue reading
