Losing weight is not an easy thing to do. And while it's ultimately up to you to drop those unwanted pounds, motivation to do so is often right in front of you. Here are some of Hollywood's biggest beauties who know this struggle all too well. Read on to hear their thoughts on their own weight-loss journey.
"Every time someone sees a slimmed-down picture of me, it's not because I felt the pressure of the girl next to me being size 2. It's just making the choice for myself to be healthier, because I know that I'm less sick when I'm more active; I have more energy when I'm more active."
The 30-year-old mom to son David, 2, should be proud; thanks to hard work and the help of Weight Watchers and celeb trainer Harley Pasternak, she lost a total of 80 pounds and gave her life a total 360.

"For the most part, yeah, I'm happy with my body, but there are days when I'm like, 'Ugh! Really? Why is it so hard to fit into my jeans?' That's when I say to myself, 'I look this way because I'm supposed to. If we all looked the same, we'd be boring.'"
The Client List star, 33, talks about being at peace with her body. Hewitt's no stranger to being under media scrutiny when it comes to her weight. After years of ups and downs, she has adopted a fitness program and healthy diet that is easy -- and fun! -- for her to maintain.
"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."
