Anyone see it? She looks adorable and so happy, I actually bought the magazine. I really enjoyed the article. So many success stories start out with, "and then one day I just got fed up and changed my whole darn life, never ate another slice of pizza, and started running marathons" and good for them, but that's just not me. It sounds like she started gradually with things she could handle, especially with exercise, and she's come a long way. I was really inspired and I'm going to hold on to this copy for a while.

There are also several other success stories with people who were counting calories and sticking between 1500 and 1800 calories. That's a HUGE relief for me to read. I can eventually get in the swing of 1500 but that is HARD for me to start off. I read somewhere that it's the "best number" for "most women" to lose steadily without plateaus or something so in my head it's the magical ideal. I'm glad to know that lots of people lose weight just fine sometimes going up to 1800.

I used to crash diet and cut calories down to 1000 or below, and that always ended up failing. Everyone always told me (even a dietitian) that I should be eating no more than 1200 calories, so I would stress out if I went over that. I was always hungry and I just felt... blah. I upped my calories to 1300-1500 and I'm still losing without the feeling of being deprived.

I just read an article about the Victoria's Secret models, and their "Model Whisperer."

http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/beauty/the-secret-to-the-worlds-best-bodies-2409415/

It's a guy who tailors workouts for the models before shoots, runway shows or job interviews. The whole thing made me sick. He was like, "None of these women were born skinny. They have insecurities just like any woman." (note that he said "skinny" not "healthy" or "fit") Well no frickin wonder women have insecurities!! :mad:

It's good to hear about someone NOT going to extremes to look better. It's a welcome relief!

I just saw that Kelly Osbourne cover, and I've seen her on "Fashion Police" as well. She looks fantastic! The efforts she's made to reshape herself really paid off; her skin looks radiant, her body looks slimmer but still robustly healthy, even her sense of style's really grown.

It's also nice to see a celebrity who doesn't feel the need to nip off half her nose or get her chin sanded down just to look appropriately "starletty."

Edited to add: That "Model Whisperer" article? Ugh! Men who refer to women--especially women for whom they work--as "girls" just creep me out.

I have the magazine, just haven't picked it up and read it yet. But yes, she looks GREAT! Hopefully she isn't lying (which I don't think so). I know her momma went the knife route and had allllll kinds of stuff done from head to toe! I admire celebrities who do it the right way!

I've been staying between 1200 and 1400 but keep going off. I'm wondering if I bumped my calories up to at least 1500 I'd be more stisfied and less tempted to stray

I think Sharon had been very very overweight most of her life and then lost weight with some form of gastric surgery. After that, she had some work done but you know...if you're very very overweight all the way up through your 40s and when you lose the weight everything is kind of saggy - I can see someone wanting some surgical help with that. Good for people who can embrace it and be happy with it, that's great, but all the sit ups and push ups in the world won't keep you from having sagging breasts and a fat apron if that's how things turn out. It's not fun to think about, but it's reality for a lot of people. Why not have those things changed if you can afford it and it's important to you.

I love that she's left her face alone. We're not all supposed to look the same and she is adorable just like she is.

Haven't seen the picture of Kelly but so glad she's managed to lose the weight.
(Anyone able to post the pic on here?)

Regarding calories, I am now 76 and find that I have to stick to 1000 Calories per day otherwise I would put ON the weight at 1200. All due to being on several meds and the fact of being disabled.

I'm at 1700 and I've been losing at a steady pace, I don't think I'll go lower then that. Sounds like a great article though.

I have a subscription to shape and saw the cover and read the article. She looks fantastic and I related to her a lot. I really enjoyed this month's issue.

They photoshopped abs onto her, god bless.

I noticed the video didn't focus on her body...but...I love her attitude!

Oh, yeah, they're always going to photoshop a magazine cover. I'm sure I'd look a **** of a lot better with some abs photoshopped onto me, too. :D

She looks good on "Fashion Police," too.

She looks great in the video. In the very beginning you can see her upper body and while she may not have some crazy hard six pack, she looks good! I can't imagine why they would change that. It's not like she looks good...for a former fat person. She just looks great.

Also, I LOVE her hair. So much.

I agree-- even though the covers of most magazines are now photoshopped they could have left it as is. In fact, I'd have loved for them to do that, because in the video she looked pretty darn good!!

Thanks guys for the photo links.
My! She does look fabulous. I always think that it's easy to say = Ah well, she has it all and a chef included most probably, BUT she still has to stop from putting goodies in her mouth the same as the rest of us. She looks like a different person.

I can see how this can be problematic, but i can also see the benefit of running an article about that. Many people just dismiss them as either anorexic or "naturally" thin, which they are, but his point is that it does take a lot of work to look that good. A lot of people just think that they can never look like that because they were not born that way. But look at someone like Jillian Michaels. Sure, I might not be as tall as a model, or as thin, but I can be fit like them if I really, really work towards it. They might have smaller frames and smaller bone structure, but it's not impossible.

Anyways, in regards to the OP... Kelly Osborne... GOOD FOR HER! I think the best thing to come out of this all is her kicking her drug addiction and alcohol addiction. What a blessing for her. I struggle with alcoholic tendencies and I've abused prescription drugs in the past (It never got addictive) so she's very inspiring to me to see her not only lose weight and get fit, but get healthy, and mentally healthy as well.

photoshopped abs aside... she looks great! i think either way, with or without abs, she and her story would have been just as inspiring!
