How 5 Stars Learned to Love Their Bodies
After losing more than 60 pounds through diet and exercise in 2012, the Fashion Police co-host admitted that her healthy body came from working on her inner health first. "People think I lost weight and that's what made me happier," she told Cosmopolitan Body. "That's not true: I had to learn to love myself first."
Sure, she's got an enviable bikini body, but the TV host said she learned the hard way that skinny doesn't always equal healthy. "Even though I was skinny, I was eating so poorly that I landed in the hospital for dehydration and nutrient issues," she told Health magazine about quickly losing weight after becoming overweight in college. "I wrote on a piece of paper, I will not compromise my health for anyone or anything ever again."
"The key about losing weight: You have to do it for you," Hudson told PEOPLE after she shed the pounds with the help of Weight Watchers. "It's not about even starting the journey, it's about you. You have to want to do it. And you can't let what everyone has to say overshadow what you want for you."
After years in the spotlight listening to detractors discuss her weight, Simpson learned to ignore the judgment. "It does get old having people harping on how much you weigh or your body after pregnancy," she told USA Today. "People are going to pick me apart no matter what I do. I'm always going to have critics."
