Now that 2019 is coming to a close, it's pretty clear that the past year has been a big one for so many celebrities -- in more ways than one. In fact, this year, there have already been so many dramatic celebrity weight loss transformations, and most of them have been all about showing off the changes they've made on social media. And as for the ones who keep a bit more quiet about their personal lives (such as Adele, for example)? Well, seeing photos of them out and about in recent months is enough to convince us they've been prioritizing fitness. 

Although some celebs have been continuing the trend downward that they began earlier than this year -- and getting super buff in the process -- like Timbaland -- others are just getting started but are already seeing some serious results. 

(Can we talk about Jessica Simpson, who not only gave birth this year but also managed to lose 100 pounds while getting ahead in her career and raising her family? That's all the inspiration we need to know that anything is possible!)

Here are all of the celebrities who have lost major weight this year. We will forever be impressed by their hard work and motivation, despite exhausting schedules and some of them raising families of their own. It just goes to show what people are capable of when they put their minds to something -- and the help of a personal trainer and chef can't hurt, either.

Looking for that push to get off the couch and head to the gym? These transformations might be just the trick to help us all get a little more active in our daily lives.

  • Ryan Lochte


    Recently, this Olympic swimmer announced that he'd lost a grand total of 21 pounds between August and October now that he's training to hopefully be at the summer games again. 

    "I've adjusted my diet and upgraded my fitness routine and I’m down 21 pounds since Nationals in August!" he wrote. "Not only is it my goal to make my 5th Olympics but it would be an honor to represent USA in Tokyo next Summer!" 

  • Joe Giudice


    Since being released from an immigration detention center this fall, Joe Giudice is looking like a totally new man. In photos that surfaced on Instagram, thanks to his daughter, Gia, Joe looks incredibly slimmed down. And best of all? 

    He looks happy. 

  • Jessica Simpson


    Six months after giving birth to her third child, Birdie Mae, Jessica showed off her massive weight loss -- and it's in the triple digits. Jess managed to lose 100 pounds, thanks to a lot of hard work -- and while caring for three kids, including a newborn. 


  • Rob Kardashian


    Although Rob likes to stay out of the public eye these days, it seems like he might be getting in shape privately. When he showed up in sister Kim Kardashian's video on her birthday, it appeared as if Rob had slimmed down. Hopefully, he'll fill us all in soon.

  • Adele 


    Although Adele hasn't spoken publicly about her weight loss, photos that surfaced of her recently say it all. When she was spotted at Drake's birthday party, fans got a glimpse of her new look. 

    "I used to cry but now I sweat," Adele joked on Instagram.

  • Ree Drummond 


    In October 2019, Ree -- known as the Pioneer Woman -- showed off her weight loss on Instagram, revealing that she'd lost a good bit of weight by stepping up her workout game.

    "I attribute this to spending the last month only allowing myself to watch a show I’ve been wanting to watch (one that I’m not going to trivialize by inserting it into this fashion and fitness post) if I did so on my rowing machine," she wrote. "It just took two full seasons for the buttoning to be successful. In other news, Elisabeth Moss is everything." 

    Was that The Handmaid's Tale she was talking about? Or maybe Mad Men

  • Alec Baldwin


    During an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Alec showed off his weight loss by dropping his pants on stage. Some people are more into before and after pictures, but Alec decided to take it to the next level. Of course, not that we're surprised or anything.

  • Lauryn 'Pumpkin' Shannon


    Honey Boo Boo's big sister is getting fit! In October, Lauryn, nicknamed Pumpkin, showed off her weight loss, thanks to a supplement she's been using. She's been promoting it for a while now, so it looks like it's paying off.

  • Tim McGraw

    This year, Tim managed to lose 40 pounds and opened up to People about why he made fitness his priority

    "I've gone through a physical transformation in the last 10 years, but it's not just my appearance that has changed," he told the outlet. "My mind is clearer, my sense of purpose is sharper, and my relationships are deeper. Consistent physical exercise helps me bring focus to my life and to the people who mean the most to me."

  • Timbaland 


    In August, Timbaland took to Instagram to show off his dramatic weight loss transformation. Since 2016, he's been hard at work, and he's managed to lose over 130 pounds. Since then, his goal has been to build muscle. Looks like Timbaland's hard work is definitely paying off! 

  • Rebel Wilson

  • Jenna Johnson


    In July, Dancing With the Stars pro Jenna took to Instagram to show off her newly toned bod -- and share how an adjustment in the way she thinks about herself is what helped her make the change. 

    "The girl on the right decided to embrace herself. Accepted her insecurities. Loved her acne!" she wrote. "Doesn’t wear makeup 90% of the time. Opened up. Took charge of her life and her identity. Blocked out the bullies and the critics who don’t know her. Tries everyday to love herself and know her worth!!"

  • Jordyn Woods


    Her friendship with the Kardashian-Jenners may have ended, but her motivation in the gym did not! Jordyn's been all about showing off her transformation on Instagram, including workout videos. This lady looks amazing! 

  • Kelly Clarkson


    Kelly's been dropping the pounds recently, so what's her secret? As she explained on Twitter, a book called The Plant Paradox has been helping her out. She called it a "giant science class," but it definitely appears it's been working for her!
