When you watch a show like “The Biggest Loser,” you can’t help but sympathize with their struggle and feel overwhelming joy when they are successful with their weigh-ins! Weighing in at 300 pounds at the start of the competition, the 2012 winner of the series worked her butt off, literally.
The intense workouts and even more drastic calorie cuts saw Rachel Frederickson lose almost 200 pounds! At the end of the season, Frederickson stepped on those scales weighing in at just 110 pounds. Since then, she’s put on 20 pounds, which is certainly healthier. Pretty amazing transformation – a couple of plastic surgery procedures to tidy up the excess skin, and Frederickson is literally a new person.

Princess Eugenie Lost a Few Pounds Pre-Wedding
Every bride wants to look like a princess on their big day, right? Well, Eugenie already has the princess part down, but she felt she needed to slim down a little to fit into her gown. Anyone who’s walked down the aisle knows that there’s always that push to get down one, or two, or a few dress sizes for that big day, right? Fad diets, extra cardio, hitting the weights section more frequently, and laying off the extra sweets are just some of the things we all do in order to get in shape.
Following her cousins Prince William and Prince Harry, all eyes were on her and her new beau. She’s fitter and stronger and looks great! She looked stunning in her wedding dress!
Chrissy Metz - 100 Pounds
Chrissy Metz just seemed to be in the right place at the right time when the role came up for the TV series "This Is Us." But while acting, Meltz just fell into place; it seems that she also had something else falling into too many places that wouldn’t budge: and that was weight. With said weight problems, it did make it more difficult for the actress to land new roles.
The weight gain was having a negative effect not only on her body but on her mind too: so she knew she had to take action and do something about her situation. Metz signed herself up to a 2000-calorie diet and daily exercise, which has since helped her drop a whopping 100lbs! You go, girl!
Christian Bale - 70 Pounds
Now Christian Bale is a bit of a shapeshifter when it comes to his acting roles – he can seemingly seamlessly shift form depending on the role at hand. He’s been in the media for his crazy transformations – his ability to slim down to a waif-like frame and then pack on muscle for a beefier looking character.
The dedication is commendable. Most notably, Bale’s transformation for his character in "The Machinist" saw him drop 70 pounds. Imagine how much fun he would’ve had bulking back up to a healthy weight! We’re sure his doctor had some qualms with him whittling down to that size, but hey, it also pegged him as an actor who truly suffered for his art.
