Weight is a constant struggle for a lot of women. Even when you’re not trying to get slim, you’re trying to keep that fit figure. But it’s not easy for everyone to stay slim and trim. So the next time you beat yourself up for gaining a few pounds, know you’re not the only one. These next celebs went from skinny to chunky and some (to get us motivated) back to slim.
Check it out eight stars who shocked us the most with their weight gain.
1. Chaka Khan
Although Chaka Khan was a “Sweet Thing” from her stacked days with Rufus and into her heavier days, we’re happy she recently lost 60 pounds. After losing the weight, Khan said her blood pressure issues are now back to normal.
2. Christina Aguilera
We definitely won’t laugh at anyone who gained weight (unless they were mean to us in high school), but we have to say we’re team Osbourne after Kelly Osbourne revealed Christina Aguilera used to poke fun at “The Fashion Police” star’s weight. What goes around comes around, Xtina!
3. Janet Jackson
Janet Jackson has always marveled us with how she could go from washboard abs to overweight and back to being fabulously fit more times than Lindsay Lohan’s been in court.
4. Mariah Carey
Hey, even a diva goes through weight ups and downs, but now Mariah keeps us inspired with her Jenny Craig weight loss.
5. Lela Rochon
Weren’t you a little surprised to see a plump Lela Rochon during a recent appearance on “Reed Between the Lines,” reuniting with Waiting to Exhale co-star Leon Robinson?
6. Jessica Simpson
Sure she looks great no matter her size, but don’t front like you didn’t say “daaaaaaamn” when Jessica Simpson appeared on David Letterman a few weeks before giving birth to her baby girl.
7. Kelly LeBrock
Kelly Lebrock had the body of a Jane Fonda workout extra in 80’s classic Weird Science, but she stepped out of the limelight and sort of…filled out.
