New Year’s Fit: 3 Celebrity Slimdowns

Need some motivation for losing that oh-so-dredded holiday weight?

Here’s some inspiration from three mega celebs who had it (a great bod), lost it (their will power) and got it back again (a slim physique) — all using popular diet plans. Before starting a diet, consult with a doctor that’s schooled to guide your healthcare and weight loss plan.

Janet Jackson: BEFORE

Ms. Jackson apparently "Lost It" (her will power) a few years ago when she packed on 60 lbs for a movie role that never came to fruition.

Mariah Carey: BEFORE

Mimi "Lost It" (her 'Vision of Lean' waist size) when she gained 70 pounds during her pregnancy with the twins - Moroccan and Monroe.

Jennifer Hudson: ALMOST THERE
