Billy Joel has always been known as one of the most energetic and legendary performers, but recently, he’s feeling a lot healthier. The Piano Man shed 50 pounds recently and looks better than ever. Fans were shocked to see his svelte figure from behind his famous piano.
Far from looking like a “schlubby-looking guy” (as Billy once described himself), the “Uptown Girl” singer decided to make some drastic changes after seeing an unflattering photo of himself. Now in his 70s, the singer-songwriter is in terrific shape and full of energy, much to the delight of concertgoers!
Ree Drummond - 60 Pounds
As a cookbook author and television star, “Pioneer Woman” Ree Drummond found it difficult to reach her fitness goals. Ree explained that she hit “rock bottom” one night when she was enjoying a late-night snack of chips and salsa. The realization that she had gone “overboard” led her to begin a weight-loss journey resulting in losing close to 60 pounds!
Though she still indulges in her famously decadent desserts, she joked that “I just eat a Rhode Island-sized piece instead of a Texas-sized piece.” Good advice!
Rob McElhenney - 70 Pounds
Actor Rob McElhenney may not seem like someone who would completely overhaul his lifestyle to get fit, but after gaining 60 pounds for season 7 of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” the actor decided to get fit.
Not only did he shed the weight he had put on for the show, but he added a lot more muscle definition. Though he’s rocking quite the body these days, the actor admits that the process has been very difficult. From not eating after certain times to running three miles a day, Rob has definitely put in the work!
James Corden - 84 Pounds
Funny man James Corden is well-known for his hilarious personality, but in recent years, many have also focused on his fuller figure. “The Late Late Show” host decided to make some changes to his lifestyle. James, who is also the ambassador for WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers), began exercising in the morning and eating healthily.
For James, one of the biggest motivators in his quest to become healthier was his son. He states he didn’t want to “feel embarrassed when I'm chasing my son on the football field and out of breath after three minutes."
Tiffany Haddish - 40 Pounds
Actress and standup comedian Tiffany Haddish may seem like the most confident woman in the room, but deep down, she was feeling uncomfortable with her body image. The “Girls Trip” actress decided that she was finally ready to embark on her fitness journey with an intensive month-long fitness program.
Not only did she lose 30 pounds over that period, she later lost an additional ten. The comedic star now works out several times a week doing everything from aerial yoga to lifting weights — a routine that is clearly working judging by photos she's uploaded to social media!
