3. Know why you want to lose weight. According to Jennifer Hudson, “the key about losing weight: You have to do it for you,” she once told People. “It’s not about even starting the journey, it’s about you.

4. Hit the weights.  “You don’t have to be a weightlifter,” FLOTUS Michelle Obama wrote while guest-editing Village. “I know a lot of women get worried about muscle definition. But actually, I’ve been told by fitness experts that the average person will not bulk up on the weights that we can lift. You want to have some weight training in your routine, especially as women, to make sure we’ve got strong bone density. And it helps with that toning, those little areas that we don’t like that flap a little bit, that aren’t as tight. That’s where lifting comes in, once you’ve gotten your cardio in there.”

5. Don’t starve yourself. “I don’t believe in starving myself. I’ve never done it, and I never will,” Naomi Campbell told Shape in March 2014. “I’m even more active when I’m juicing, doing both yoga and Pilates every day.” She said her eating plan is clean, and she starts the day with hot water with lemon and an intense yoga session.

Sure, in most cases, celebs reach their weight loss goals with the assistance of personal trainers, private chefs, and maybe even a plastic surgeon or two. But that doesn’t mean you can’t practice more attainable habits to sculpt or preserve a flawless physique.
