Looking good! Kevin Smith updated fans on his health and revealed that he’s close to his goal of losing 50 lbs since suffering a heart attack in February.

Celebrities’ Weight Loss and Transformations: Before and After Pictures

“Today, I am down a total of 43 pounds! Only 7 more pounds until I’ve shed the 50 my doctor told me to lose following the heart attack,” the Weight Watchers ambassador, 47, captioned an Instagram pic on Wednesday, June 13, crediting magician Penn Jillette and Ray Cronise for kickstarting his weight loss, and Weight Watchers for helping him slim down. “This #wwambassador is now at the absolute thinnest I’ve been since I finished high school! And while I may look a little better, I FEEL f—king fantastic! It’ll be a few weeks, but I’m ready to lose that final 7 points! And when I hit my goal, I’ll let you know where I started.”

Smith made headlines in February after revealing that he experienced a “massive” heart attack backstage at an L.A. comedy show. He recently showed off his weight loss in May, telling his 1.2 million Instagram followers that he’s lost 32 lbs since the traumatic experience.

“For me, food was not like fuel. It wasn’t, like, you eat food because it powers your body and you move on,” he said at the time. “I’m an American who grew up in the ‘70s when America figured out, if we start putting more sugar in everything, they’ll buy it. So sugar starts showing up in the bread and everything.”

Smith added that he didn’t think he was having a heart attack when it happened, given that he lost 85 lbs three years ago after cutting sugar out of his diet entirely. “I was sweaty, I thought I couldn’t catch my breath, I felt nauseated, but I didn’t think of those as heart attack symptoms,” he explained. “I couldn’t piece it together, but that’s me being incredibly stupid because my mom has two stents in her heart and my father died of a massive heart attack at 67.”

Tyler Baltierra Shows Off INSANE Weight Loss!

There have been a whole lot of changes for Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra these past several months, right?

And as you likely know, not all of them have been good.

Last fall, they decided it was time to expand their family, and Catelynn actually did get pregnant pretty fast. Unfortunately, she suffered a miscarriage shortly after announcing the news to her family (and to the Teen Mom OG film crew).

She’s dealt with depression and anxiety for years, and the miscarriage sent her into a tailspin that resulted in two separate six-week visits to a treatment center in Arizona.

In March, she left her second rehab stint, and she’s been home since — and thankfully, it seems like she’s doing much better these days.

As for Tyler, who struggled with his own grief over the miscarriage on top of holding down the home and family clothing business while Catelynn was gone, it looks like he’s been feeling a lot better too!

Judging by a new photo he shared on Instagram, he’s looking a lot different, too!

DANG, right?!

“Hard work is paying off!” he captioned the photo. “It’s been 6 months since completely changing my eating habits, I dropped 40lbs & now it’s time to cut it all up with these workouts, BOOM!”

He added the hashtags “crushing these personal goals” and “it feels great,” which is nice.

Then, as you can see in the photo (because of the text and also because of the evidence), he’s already seeing progress with his ab muscles.

Tyler has never been a heavy guy, quite the contrary — he’s always been pretty skinny.

But sometime in the past year or so, his metabolism did seem to slow down, and he started looking a little fuller in the face, which he himself frequently mentioned on social media.

Back in October, he announced that he had “a major dadbod,” but that “I just haven’t decided if I care yet hahaha.”

Tyler Baltierra Weight Loss

Around New Years though, like so many of us, he decided he did care, and he switched up his diet.

He started dropping weight fast — by the beginning of February, he said that he was already down 35 pounds.

Judging by this new post of his, the goal was to lose 40 pounds altogether, and now that he’s done it, he’s going to start working on building muscle.

And judging by the comments on the post, a whole lot of his followers appreciate what they’re seeing.

An insane amount of people complimented his looks here, which is more than fair — as we’ve said, he’s obviously looking good.

“Taking dad bod to a whole new level!” one commenter joked.

“Good job Tyler,” another wrote. “Besides getting back into shape, exercise is so important for mental stability. I applaud you.”

That’s a good point, because on top of all the bad feelings brought on by the miscarriage, we know that he was also diagnosed as bipolar recently.

He’s said that he wanted to try working on things naturally before starting on any medications, and while there’s definitely no shame if he ends up needing meds, exercise and a healthy diet certainly can’t hurt.

Let’s see, what else … a ton of people admitted that they thought Tyler was Justin Bieber at first when they saw this photo in their Instagram feed, which is hilarious but understandable.

Of course, things couldn’t be all positive and lighthearted for long — plenty of his followers felt the need to tell him that Catelynn should be the one working out instead.

Some even suggest that he should leave her. Because of abs.

Somehow, we doubt that will happen, and even if it did, this isn’t a story about Baltierra divorce rumors.

It’s a story about how Tyler is feeling himself, and rightfully so.

Congrats, bud!

Surprise! Melissa McCarthy has lost a TON of weight!

The famous Bridesmaids actress is turning in a very new direction with her next career project, a film coming out in October called Can You Ever Forgive Me?, and part of the difference comes in what we’ll all see on screen: a much thinner Melissa!

The talented actress is playing a down-and-out author who turns to crime to pay the bills in this movie (set to open on the 19th of October), and to make it happen for the part, McCarthy lost a whopping 75 pounds!!!

Of course, she downplays the whole thing.

In the past, she has said about her weight and general health and fitness (below):

“I’ll be up, I’ll be down, probably for the rest of my life. The thing is, if that is the most interesting thing about me, I need to go have a lavender farm in Minnesota and give this up. If I, off the top of my head, name 20 of the most amazing women in my life, it’s all shapes, sizes, ages, colours, jobs. I can only go off my reality. What people pass off as ‘normal’, I just have to keep in my head that it’s bullshit.”

Rob Kardashian Celebrates 31st Birthday, Shows Off MASSIVE Weight Loss!

Rob Kardashian has been laying low recently, and for good reason.

After all, things haven’t been going super well for him lately.

Or for the past several years, for that matter.

He obviously loves his daughter very much, and he probably had like three or four good days during his relationship with Blac Chyna, but besides that, it seems like he’s been in a really dark place for a really dark time.

He had that extremely messy, allegedly abusive relationship with Chyna that ended in flames, he released those nude photos of her that’s gotten him into a heap of legal trouble.

Chyna’s claimed in court documents that he was violent towards her, and that he would threaten suicide to manipulate her, which, you know, isn’t great.

On top of all that, his health has been an issue for the past few years now, and in multiple ways: remember when his family was begging him to go to rehab?

Rob’s also struggled with his weight for a long time, and that’s leading into what we’re going to be talking about today.

See, yesterday was his birthday — he’s 31 now.

To celebrate, Kris Jenner threw a party at her house. Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe were there, though it looks like Kendall and Kylie were on vacation.

Kim and Kourtney brought their kids as well, and little Dream was in attendance!

We know that because Kim shared this picture in her Instagram stories — and look how great Rob looks:

It’s clear that he’s been losing quite a bit of weight, right?

He posted Kim’s photo on his Twitter account, and his followers all agreed that he’s looking good here.

“Dream is just beaut and don’t get me started on Rob,” one person wrote. “He looks so good I’m so happy for him.”

“Wow the weight loss!!” another commented. “Keep going you’ve got this!”

Referencing one of the most iconic Kardashian moments, another of his followers told him “YAS DADDY ROB UR DOING AMAZING SWEETIE.”

And it’s not just that he’s lost weight, but he also looks genuinely happy here, which is rare to see these days.

Oh, and since it was his birthday, you know his family took some time to leave some sweet comments about him on their social media accounts!

“Happy birthday to my brother Rob!!!” Kim wrote. “I love you so much and wish you all of the happiness in the world! I love raising our kids together, you’re the best dad and friend! Can’t wait to celebrate today!!”

In a post of her own, Khloe said “Happy birthday Rob!!! This year is YOURS! I can’t wait to see all you conquer! Seeing you as a father has been so rewarding!”

“You’re an incredible father, brother, and friend!” she added. “I can’t wait to raise our daughters together! I love you Bob.”

Meanwhile, Kris told him that he’s “the most wonderful son a mom could ever ask for and I thank God for you every day!”

“It brings me so much joy to see the incredible father you have become. I am so proud of you!!”

Blac Chyna even set aside her issues with Rob to wish him a happy birthday — she shared this old photo of them with Dream to do so:

Blac Chyna's happy birthday to Rob

It’s nice that he seems to have so much support in his life, and especially that he and Chyna seem to be on decent terms, despite everything.

Hopefully this means that he’s finally on the way to getting better, for good this time, mentally as well as physically.

Happy birthday, Rob.

For the LGBT Community, Gus Kenworthy’s Olympics Loss Is Still a Big Win

The moment, when it happened, felt routine to American slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, who along with figure skater Adam Rippon is the only openly gay male Winter Olympian to ever compete for the United States. Matthew Wilkas, Kenworthy’s boyfriend, gave Kenworthy a good-luck kiss before a qualifying run on Sunday in South Korea. “That was like a peck,” Wilkas, who wore a “USGay” t-shirt to the event, tells TIME afterwards from the bottom of the slopestyle course at the Phoenix Snow Park. “We should have made out in front of people.” Kenworthy didn’t know the TV cameras caught it, but they did: NBC beamed the kiss into living rooms across the country, setting off a blaze of social media reactions.

But once Kenworthy — who won a silver medal in slopestyle skiing at the Sochi Olympics while still in the closest — found out that NBC aired the kiss, he began to consider its importance. “That’s something that I wanted at the last Olympics, to share a kiss with my boyfriend at the bottom,” says Kenworthy. “It was something I was too scared to do for myself. To be able to do that, to give him a kiss, to have that affection broadcasted to the world is incredible. I think the only way to change perceptions, break down homophobia, break down barriers, is through representation. That’s something that I didn’t have as a kid. I definitely didn’t see a gay athlete at the Olympics kissing their boyfriend. And I think that if I had, it would have made it a lot easier for me. Hopefully it did that for other people.”

Kenworthy, who came out as gay in an ESPN The Magazine article in 2015, failed to win back-to-back medals at the Olympics. He finished 12th, dead last, in the finals, having fallen on his first two runs, and bailing out of his third run before the finish. (Oystein Braaten of Norway took the gold medal, while American Nick Goepper, the bronze medalist from Sochi, won a bronze). He battled a broken thumb and a hip injury in the lead-up to his competition, not to mention increased scrutiny after his public criticisms of Vice President Mike Pence for his record on gay rights. “He’s definitely been stressing out a lot,” says Wilkas. “The gay community looks up to him, then the people who hate him for being who he is and can’t wait to see him fail. There’s a sense of wanting to prove them wrong.”

Though Kenworthy lost on the slopes, his mere presence in PyeongChang was an important victory for the LGBT community. “Just his existence is a form of resistance,” says Kenworthy friend Tyler Oakley, an LGBT activist with a significant social media following, including almost 7.9 million YouTube subscribers. The kiss only added to his impact. “Especially when a lot of counties might not even show something like that, at a time when even his home country might have government officials that don’t celebrate that type of love, it’s important,” says Oakley. “It means something.”

Sports were a sort of final frontier for the gay community. Before Michael Sam, Jason Collins and others, athletes were reluctant to come out. So Olympians like Kenworthy and Rippon carry particular clout. “What I’ve seen is a unification, like I’ve never seen before, around these incredible out athletes,” says Oakley. “The term role model gets thrown around. I think of a possibility model for kids out there, what they can be and what’s possible for them. That is going to change lives.”

While Kenworthy scored a key victory off the snow, he seemed to take his slopestyle shortcomings in stride. “It’s all good,” he told the media afterwards. Then he walked down a small hill to meet his family (mom Pip, dad Peter, his two brothers and Wilkas) and broke down, bawling, in their arms. He could no longer hide his hurt. Months of mental fatigue — the worrying about qualifying for the Games, the sponsor obligations, the hurtful messages from the internet — came pouring out of him. “You’ve had a long week, you’re tired,” his older brother, Nick, told him, in an attempt at reassurance. “You’re a f–king champion, dude.” As the tears subsided, Kenworthy began his walk out of the snowboarding venue. And onto bigger things, for sure.

Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen Kiss in Costa Rica After Super Bowl Loss

Tom Brady is slowly forgetting all about that Super Bowl loss. The New England Patriots quarterback and wife Gisele Bündchen jetted off to Costa Rica just days after his team lost against the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this month.

The 40-year-old athlete even joked about the 41-33 defeat as he captioned an Instagram pic of the couple kissing.

“This Sunday’s outcome is a lot better than last Sunday’s!” he wrote on Sunday, February 11. “#losingstreakstopsatone.”

Brady — who shares son Benjamin, 8, and daughter Vivian, 5, with the supermodel — broke his silence about the game on February 9. (He also is dad of son John, 10, with ex Bridget Moynahan.)

“It has taken me a few days to reflect on our SB loss as well as the great season our team had. There are many emotions when you come up short of your goal. And they are all part of learning and growing in this journey of life. Learning turns everything into a positive,” he wrote. “The number one feeling I have had the past 4 days is gratitude. Gratitude to my teammates for the incredible effort given all season regardless of the challenges we faced. Gratitude toward my coaches for the effort and sacrifice they make to put us players in the best position to win. Gratitude to the NEP organization for supporting us on our very challenging and difficult journey.”

He added: “Gratitude to the Philadelphia Eagles team and organization for bringing out the best in us and being gracious winners (as well as congratulations on winning the championship). Gratitude toward our fans who showed up every week to cheer us on and commit their time and energy and love and support to what our goals are. And gratitude to my family and friends who continue to love and support my dreams. Thank you all. I love you all.”

Gisele Bundchen Shares Emotional Message After Patriots’ Super Bowl Loss

After the New England Patriots lost to the York Giants Giants in the 2012 Super Bowl, Tom Brady’s wife, Gisele Bündchen, famously voiced her frustrations on her way out of the stadium. “My husband cannot f–king throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time!” the supermodel snapped at a heckler. “I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”

But after a tough loss for the Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday, February 4, Bündchen handled defeat more graciously.

“Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super bowl, what a game that was!” she wrote in an Instagram post on Monday morning. “Congratulations Patriots for giving your best and to my love, we are incredibly proud of you because we are able to see every day all of the commitment, sacrifice and hard work that you have devoted to become the best in what you do. We love you!”

In the emotional photo, the Brazilian beauty is seen consoling a visibly disappointed Brady. She was also spotted comforting her and the quarterback’s kids Vivian, 5, and Benjamin, 8, who were seen crying after the game.

“Sometimes you have to let other people win,” she was quoted by USA Today as telling the children. “We have to share. Sharing is caring.” When Vivian pointed out that the Eagles won the Super Bowl, Bündchen replied, “Just this time. Daddy won five times. They never won before . . . Their whole life, they never won a Super Bowl. You just have to let someone else win sometimes.”

The Eagles were an underdog in Super Bowl LII, led by backup quarterback Nick Foles. They won with a score of 41-33.
