Kelly Osbourne Talks About Weight, Diet, and Exercise in Us Magazine

The Transformation of Kelly Osbourne

I have to admit that I've never been a fan of Kelly Osbourne, but after reading her interview in the latest issue of Us Weekly, I'm a convert. The singer talks in detail about the hard work she went through to transform herself from a size 14 to a size two. I love that Kelly did it in a totally manageable and healthy way, and has such a kick-ass attitude about everything she's been through. Focusing on a healthy diet and exercise plan, the 5-foot-2 star lost an amazing 42 pounds. Most importantly, she has let go of the shame she's carried for years because of her weight. Check out the highlights below.

  • How Dancing With the Stars changed her life. "He [DWTS partner Louis van Amstel] made me work out, practice six times a day and get fit. I fought him the whole time, but at the end of the show I realized he was right. It worked."
  • On working out.  "After DWTS ended I followed the Bar Method and now I do that three times a week at least. Not every day. I don't have that kind of dedication. Working out sucks. You sweat and you stick, but then you're done — and then you see that just taking an hour three times a week can change you so much. It becomes addictive."
  • To find out what Kelly's eating and how her self-esteem has changed,

    .

  • On eating well. "You don't have to count calories. Just make sure what you're eating is good food. You can eat as much good food as you want if you're careful. I try to have no carbohydrates unless they're natural, such as apples. No bread, no pasta and real sugar . . . what that does to you is incredible. I lost five pounds in one week just by eliminating starchy carbs and soda."
  • Why dieting doesn't work. "If you want to lose weight for good, you need to make a commitment to a life change. You have to say, 'I'm just not going to eat that anymore. I'm going to change my bad habits.' Otherwise, you'll spend the rest of your life yo-yoing and you'll be miserable. By no means is it easy. Getting in shape is one of the hardest things I've ever done."
  • On loving who she sees today. "When I look in the mirror now, it's really different. For the first time, I look at myself and I'm really proud to not hate every single thing that I see. What has made this process so healthy and interesting to me is that it's been a whole transformation. It's like this feeling disappeared that I had carried around with me for so long."

I think she rocks and I am very proud of how far she's come!

She certainly looks healthier now, but no carbs.... Really? Too many people have a misconception of an essential food group. Sure, eliminate processed carbs like white bread and cakes, but having a portion of pasta, rice or wholemeal bread at meals isn't going to make you put on the pounds. Cut it off completely and you'll feel tired and moody, and look worst for wear.

I don't CARE if she is a size 2 or not. That was not my point. My point was I am sick of hearing ALL celebs yapping about what size they supposedly are. Sizes are different everywhere. It always comes off as some sort of self-assurance that they are fit. Just embrace what you are doing and how you are leaving and keep your pants size to yourself!

If you cut out all carbs and sugar - you are on a diet. I am sure some people can stick to that for the rest of their life but most people can't. I find it so funny whenever I read people talking about how they are not dieting when they are totally dieting. If you you change the way you eat completely and you are only eating that way to be thin - you are dieting. Eat food, not too much, mostly plants - it's what Michael Pollan says and it works better for me than any "lifestyle change" - speak diet - did before.

I've never been a pick fan of her either, but I'm so happy for her! (And her brother Jack, who's gotten in great shape too) She looks amazing, super fit but not stick skinny. Like a real person! How refreshing and rare. All these celebrities say they go on DWTS and get in such good shape. I wish I could just take a break from my life and temporarily become a ballroom dancer. The elliptical is getting really old.

I like what she is wearing in her before picture. She does look good and I'm glad she's finding a balance in her life that promotes health.

Not this ridiculous "is she a size 2" argument again! Sizes don't even mean anything anymore because every brand is different.

NOT a role model. How many times has this girl been in rehab?

Actually, when you're short, like I am you can be a little wider and wear a smaller size. I'm 5'2'' and wider than my friend whose 5'11'' and I wear a smaller size than her. Clothing size doesn't always correlate to how small you look, especially when you're very tall or very short. Just an observation, I may be wrong about Kelly, but that's what I've found.

I think she looks great and it is fabulous that she has embraced a healthier lifestyle. I don't believe she is a size 2 though. I wish these celebs would stop shouting out their sizes (fake or real), like it is some sort of validation. If she is a size 2, fine. If you are a 6, fine. As long as you are at a healthy weight, body fat, BP, cholesterol, etc. as result of living a healthy lifestyle, that is what matters.

I've always been a fan of Kelly. We're around the same age so I kind of grew up watching her on the Osborne's. I too used to struggle with weight and I hadn't seen a real change in my weight until I made a lifestyle commitment to eat better and be healthy. I hope she can keep up the good work.
