We present a list of famous women who years ago had a perfect weight but over time became overweight.
When Cristina Aguilera appeared for the first time on stage with her song "Genie in a Bottle" she was so thin that would probably fit in that bottle.
Moving up to 2013, the singer gained a few extra kilos and emerged a new person named Xtina.
Thank God, she had left behind the overweight and had also abandoned her alter ego. Now she is the mother of two and is the host of the show "The Voice" on NBC.
Supermodel Tyra Banks, the host of "America's Next Top Model" is known for her good looks and small figure.
When the photos of the model in a one-piece bikini on the beach appeared, it was clear that she has put on weight. The criticisms were hard.
Despite the shock, it was clear that the extra kilos she has gained were here to stay.
Today we know Mindy Kaling as the hilarious character of her self-described comedy "The Mindy Project".
Although she wasn`t ever thin (at least by Hollywood standards), she appeared slimmer in her early days on TV.
And with a successful TV show, a book that is a bestseller and several other projects, who has time to worry about weight!
When Kirstie appeared on the TV show "Cheers" as a tall actress with gorgeous legs, no one could imagine that she was fighting a constant battle with the overweight.
In 2009, the actress reached her biggest ever weight, 230 pounds. Again she began to lose it, this time entering "Dancing with the Stars" where she took the title of "runner up".
Anna was thrown into the limelight because of her role in "Breaking Bad."
The actress was not fat at all during her acting in "Breaking Bad" but she was not considered thin either.
After five seasons the show ended and when Anna appeared at the Emmy Awards, she was much thinner.
The actress then
explained that she had been sick and had really gained weight during the filming
of "Breaking Bad" due to cortisone treatments.
When we first met Hillary Duff, she was the beautiful and charming girl from the Disney show "Lizzie McGuire".
The star really put on kilos when she got married and later became pregnant with her son Luca.
Today Hillary looks better than ever. She has lost weight after her pregnancy (and her husband too) and she is trying to keep in fit and being healthy.
Mariah gained weight when she got married and became pregnant with twins.
The battle with extra weight after giving birth wasn`t easy for the star. In addition, she has had difficult problems in her personal life that dissuaded her from the goals in relation to her weight.
Janet Jackson has always had a battle with her weight, which is known to fluctuate dramatically.
In 2005, the singer, dancer, and actress put on weight, an obvious difference from her toned and small body. But only a few years later, the superstar surprised the world when she lost 60 pounds.
In her book "True You", Janet talks about her weight problems explaining that she is an emotional eater.
If there was anything for which Britney Spears was admired in the past, it was because of her impressive body. Her toned legs, firm abs, and beautifully sculpted arms made her the envy of women around the world.
Unfortunately, the singer had gone through difficult times in her life: a failed marriage, mental illness and a backlog in her career.
With all these, it is not surprising that doing sport and eating healthily took a back seat. Thank God, Britney's life seems to return to normal, well as her splendid body. Hurray for it!
Kelly Clarkson became a pop culture phenomenon when she became the first winner of the "American Idol" television show.
Since her "American Idol" days, Kelly's weight has changed drastically. Maybe the marriage and two children led to it.
One thing that has not fluctuated over the years is her career. She has sold more than 25 million albums and has more than 100 hits that were number one!
Jessica Simpson`s small figure, her toned legs, and her big breasts were a hot topic when she appeared on the music scene.
Later she divorced, remarried, and had two children. The curvy singer is not at all the same size as she used to be.
Since then, the mother and wife have maintained her curved figure. She recognizes that she loves her figure and that doesn`t want to wear a size zero.
It`s been a long as the old Disney star stopped being the "pretty girl" from "The Cosby Show".
The one that was once a little star looks very different from her days as a Cheetah girl. She really looks like she's a different person. Raven admits that she has been struggling with the extra weight for years.
And this TV
personality does not seem to have any plans to get rid of her overweight in the
near future. So get used to it!
