Standards of celebrity weight loss can sometimes seem unrealistic-stars swear by restricting diets, new moms are pressured to drop weight just months (or weeks!) after having a baby. That's why we loved seeing actress Melissa McCarthy-who's risen to Hollywood's A-list in spite of the industry's "skinny standard"-step out showing off a more realistic vision of weight loss, with a new slimmed-down figure. The star looked confident and healthy at a fundraiser yesterday for P.S. ARTS, an organization that supports arts education in underserved public schools and communities in Santa Monica, CA.

McCarthy has reportedly lost 45 pounds by following a high protein and low-carb diet. But is she finally folding to Hollywood's image of thin? No way! A source told reporters that McCarthy wants to set a good example and stay healthy for her kids, and to live longer. We like this kind of smart perspective on a woman's body, her health, and her weight. But we especially love how happy she looks-and we're betting she loves it, too!

It's been a year since my husband practically threw me away like GARBAGE for being too fat and disgusting, as he called me.And that’s when I decided I’d had enough… No matter what it took I was going to look great! The first thing I wanted to do was to get rid of cellulite. After much trial and error, I finally found a program that taught me the correct body movements to stimulate all 90 muscles of my lower body and the right way to optimize my hormones through nutrient balance. The end result is astonishing. Cellulite is gone.The firmness and tightness of my body is something I've never felt before.I feel proud of myself. And so can you...

Hi, my name is Helen, I’m in my late 30's and I’m a mom of 3 adorable children. I’ve always struggled with my weight especially after the birth of my third child, 6 years ago.I just stopped taking care of myself. I believe that I let motherhood consume me and forgot how to be a woman. That is one of the main reasons why my marriage fell apart, 3 years ago. My husband didn't even want to look at me naked for years. He actually told me that he felt betrayed. And the worst part? I also felt I betrayed myself. I was feeling ashamed, guilty and embarrassed, which made me too weak mentally to be able to lose weight. Continue here >>> https://bit.ly/mydietplantoday

Hi, my name is Kate and I would like to share my story. Up until about 2 years ago, I was 30 pounds overweight. Over the years I had followed many different diet plans, but failed every single time. I was "blessed" with a pear shaped body and no matter what i did, I always retained lots of stubborn fat in my lower body. Everything changed when I found the right diet program. My story is here ==> http://bit.ly/mydietstory
