9. Star Jones Reynolds
The popular co-host on the TV show, The View, has struggled with a weight problem for most of her life. She appeared to be overweight for much of her career until she rapidly lost the extra pounds over a short period of time.
She maintains her beautiful figure today but kept her secret as to how she achieved it for a long time. Her secret was that she had gastric bypass surgery to rid herself of the pounds that had been haunting her for most of her life. Some people have this surgery and don’t eat healthily afterward, in which case they put the weight back on. Reynolds, however, has proven that she is taking her health seriously and plans on maintaining her new look.
