I know so many people who want to lose weight and are constantly working at it. Maybe these celebrities who’ve succeeded at dropping a few pounds—100 in one case—can be an inspiration. Most impressive to me is Anthony Hopkins (below), who shed 75 pounds. “I’m in the gym six days a week, I power walk, live on 800 calories a day.”

John Goodman was miserable after his weight ballooned to new heights: nearly 400 pounds. He stopped eating sugar and drinking, and hired a trainer. Now he's lost over 100 pounds.

Jennifer Hudson dropped from a size 16 to a size four. And now she's a national spokeswoman for Weight Watchers

Drew Carey (host of The 'The Price Is Right') was tired of all those extra pounds, what with Type 2 diabetes and the inability to lift his step son. So he lost 80 pounds, and has never looked better.
