I didn't see it but I always wonder about people who become famous then drop weight. I ponder what their reasons are. Is it because they are pressured to do so? Or is it they finally afford a personal trainer and chef to the stars? How exactly they went about losing?

As a former fat girl I always would say if I was just able to have a personal chef and trainer it would be easy then. I found seeing these stars getting skinny as a blow to the whole "big girl club" that supported them along the way. But I see now it was a cop out for me. I finally saw the light 2 years ago and as the words of a Sister Hazel song go "If you want to be somebody else ,Change your mind".

I came to grips that I will never be a super star with a personal chef and in home trainer. If I wanted to change I had to make it happen for myself within my means. I changed my mind!

Way to go Jordin, I wish her the best on her own journey. She has my respect because we know it's not easy.

I only barely noticed her weight loss, I was too distracted by the slutty dress. Very unfortunate choice, I think.

She was never that big to begin with but she's definitely toned up. She recently showed a bikini shot of her on twitter (taken from the bathroom window) with a pout and pose. Her tweet said "I dont know why but my bathing suit reminds me of fruity pebbles. Werk what we got!"

She was a chunky monkey when she started. I remember when she had her audition and she had the crazy hair and black finger nails. Now I normally see her with straightened hair and is much slimmer. Good job for thinning down, for that is what I am doing, but I do feel like she lost a little of "who she was" from when she started.

Granted, she was only 17 so she has grown into a beautiful young lady. I did not see it, however I am going to google it now.
