graaaaaaandes mudanças

Tyra banks - Nearly three years afer she famously fired back at critics of her curvy figure, chronic stomachaches forced the daytime host, 35, to adjust her eating habits. Banks consulted a nutritionist – who had Banks keep a food diary, which identified her unhealthy eating habits (like topping her salads with bacon bits). "It's about ... learning what's right for your body," says Banks, who lost 30 lbs. "Now I really can say ... kiss my fit – and still fat – ass!"

PETER JACKSON - Three years after a diet of yogurt, muesli and soup helped the filmmaker drop a shocking 70 lbs., the Lovely Bones director, now 48, is still as svelte as ever.

Mo'nique - Before she lost 45 lbs., "I couldn't tie my shoes!" says the star of Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire. But now, "I'm enjoying how my body's shaping up.

Kelly Osbourne - At 24, she finally got into the best shape of her life by dropping 20 lbs. on Dancing with the Stars and coming in third on the show as a fan favorite. "I feel amazing," says Osbourne, who for years battled drug abuse and took up yo-yo dieting. "I was looking at a video and was like, 'I have a jaw line!' I was excited about that."


Jennifer Hudson - Once the singer gave birth to David Daniel Otunga Jr. on Aug. 10, she went back to eating "little meals five times a day," says Hudson, 28, who also took daily 45-minute walks and cut sugar out of her diet. Says the new mom: "It's a beautiful thing to regain your body."
Elvis Costello - At 55, the newly slim singer should have no trouble keeping up with his 3-year-old twins, Frank and Dexter, with wife Diana Krall.

O Peter Jackson é a mudança que mais me choca pela positiva: está irreconhecível e com muitissimo bom aspecto, diria até que muito atraente!!!! E Parabéns a todas as celebridades ou não, que conseguiram ter força para perder peso e "fechar a boca"....!

Guilty Pleasure #1

Phil Collins "Against All Odds".

Seguindo a ideia de uma rubrica de um programa de rádio que ouço há muitos anos, decidi também eu dedicar-me aos meus "Guilty pleasures", que é como quem diz, o prazer com culpa, que se tem vergonha de admitir, mas que se adora.

Esta canção é uma daquelas que já me fez chorar baba e ranho quando o namorado da época acabou o namoro, quando vemos o rapaz de quem gostamos (e ele nem faz ideia) aos beijos com outra, enfim, uma panóplia de desilusões, amores desfeitos e corações partidos.

Lembro-me perfeitamente de quando este video saiu e de estar no top de vendas nacionais em 1984. Lembro-me de ver em directo o Phil Collins a cantar esta canção no Live Aid (pois, a trintona confessa-se).

Pronto, Phil, contra todas as probabilidades (piada gira!) és o meu Guilty Pleasure número 1.
