2022 appears to have been the year of weight loss transformations – at least as far as the A-listers are concerned – as we have seen some truly mind-blowing transformations over the past 12 months, both in super impressive ways and sadly also ways that have left some fans feeling a little concerned! (Yes, Jessica Simpson, we’re looking at you!)
Celebrity Weight Loss Transformations 2022
But Jessica isn’t the only A-lister to make our jaws drop, as many others, including several members of the Kardashian family, have also done the same! Take a look at some of the most shocking celebrity weight loss transformations of 2022 below:
Let's start off with one of the most dramatic and unexpected weight loss transformations! The 42-year-old Skkn by Kim founder has always had an enviable hourglass figure with a flat stomach and curves in all of the right places – made even more desirable by her Skims shapewear, no less – but her curves seemed to shrink and disappear to almost nothing over the past 12 months.
Kim was very open with her weight loss journey in May after confessing that she had to lose 16 lbs to fit into the late Marilyn Monroe's iconic gold Jean Louis-designed dress for the Met Gala, which truly blew us away. But what we weren’t prepared for was Kim, to quote some of her fans, taking it too far and losing even more weight, resulting in a tiny and almost unrecognizable appearance on talk shows and even in off-duty pap shots.
We can't remember a time when the 38-year-old Good American founder wasn’t losing weight, as her frame has gotten smaller and smaller as the years have gone on, with 2022 being a particularly intense and dramatic year!
Khloé's fans have praised her for her enviable figure on several occasions, but they have voiced their concerns a *lot* lately, claiming that she has taken it too far! Just a few months ago, she was papped on the beach with her four-year-old daughter True, and fans flocked to Reddit to say her weight loss was "worrisome" and "concerning," with many others attributing it to the stress she is under following her break-up from baby daddy Tristan Thompson.
The 42-year-old singer and clothing designer has been very open with her fans about her 100-lbs weight loss journey that she has been on for the past three years. At first, fans were extremely supportive and praised Jessica for her incredible weight loss transformation following the birth of her daughter Birdie, but Jessica's frame appeared to keep shrinking, leading fans to suspect that she has lost a *lot* more than she said she had.
Jessica has shocked fans on quite a few occasions over the past year, including in the summer when she shared some snaps of herself in a bikini while on vacation, which led fans to say that she was "too skinny" and urged her to "not lose anymore weight." Another fan commented: "Eating disorder for sure. Does not look healthy or attractive at all."
The 42-year-old This Is Us actress truly blew fans away in 2022, with her weight loss journey which saw her lose 100 lbs in just five months! Wow! According to Health And Healthier, the Emmy-nominated actress "went from being 226kgs to 181kgs within a short time period of less than 5 months," which is absolutely incredible!
We love that Chrissy was very open with her fans about the steps she took to achieve her epic weight loss, revealing that she changed her diet to eat 2,000 calories per day, while also eliminating all of the unhealthy foods she was previously eating, and going on regular, 20-minute walks, doing low-intensity workouts every day, and drinking a *lot* of water every day! Whatever she did, it worked!
Jenna Bush Hager
The 41-year-old Today co-host shocked viewers in 2022 by unveiling her weight loss transformation live on air! That's the way to do it! After receiving a lot of compliments from fans and co-hosts, the mom-of-three went into detail about what she had been doing to achieve her new slimmed-down look, which she said took about six months in total.
"The difference is I wake up before the show and I work out. And I really work out. I work out with an awesome woman named Amanda," Jenna shared. She later told Entertainment Tonight that she trains with a former New York Knicks dancer to help her stay in "fighting shape." She confessed: "I have friends who meet me a couple of days a week in my building and I work out with this incredible woman who was a Knicks dancer. So, yes. There is dancing. There [are] ab workouts, which frankly [I] did not have an ab before we started doing it, but I found one little ab down in there." What an inspiration!
Perhaps one of the more concerning weight loss transformations in 2022 came from Chrissy Teigen. The 37-year-old model and cookbook author sparked concern when she shared a video of herself dancing with daughter Luna on Instagram, and her fans were extremely concerned after seeing her severely-slimmed-down figure, which was hard to ignore thanks to the short shorts she was wearing.
"Hope you're ok. You lost a lot of weight," exclaimed one fan in the comments section. "She is so skinny," another fan wrote, while another said, "Oh my you look so different, you lost a lot of weight!" Other fans had a lot of questions for the Lip Sync Battle co-host, with one fan asking, "When did u lose so much weight?" and another saying, "You lost so much weight in the last few weeks, are you okay?"
We’re finishing off with another inspirational weight loss journey courtesy of the 43-year-old The Mindy Project star, who showed off her post-pandemic weight loss on the red carpet last year.
The Sex Lives of College Girls producer has been open with fans about how her body has changed since giving birth, and back in May, Mindy told Today that although she is "never going to stop being a foodie," she feels confident that she can maintain her new slimmer and more toned physique due to making positive changes to her diet and now no longer regarding exercise as a "punishment." Also in May, she told People: "I've tried really hard to let go of this idea of losing weight for vanity reasons and really trying to think of how I can be healthy. Healthy is working out, moving my body a lot, keeping hydrated, and then not having negative connotations around working out and making me feel like if I don't do this, then I won't be something else."
