Valerie Bertinelli Bikini Photo Covers Celeb News Magazine

by at . Comments

It seems all the media does is scrutinize the weight of stars.

If Jessica Simpson is seen in an unflattering pair of high-waisted jeans, she's fat. If Beyonce Knowles dons a gown that accentuates her curvy physique, she's fat.

Kim Kardashian will quickly leap to their defense, but it's still sad.

Fortunately, a celebrity story pertaining to weight loss came out today that you can get excited about! At age 48, Valerie Bertinelli has gotten her bikini bod back - and she's showing it off on the latest cover of People magazine.

Valerie Bertinelli has lost 50 pounds as she approaches 50 years.

Of course, it wasn't easy achieving her newly fit physique. It was an uphill battle. In April 2007, the former One Day at a Time star proclaimed, "I'm fat."

She was 5'2", weighed 172 pounds, and vowed to drop from a size 14 to a size 8.

Almost two years later now, the actress is in the best shape of her life after losing more than 50 pounds thanks to exercise and her Jenny Craig diet.

The star, who had last worn a bikini when she was 20, was ready for a new challenge: "I thought, If I'm so afraid of a bikini, there’s something wrong. And so I had to get back into one!," Valerie Bertinelli says in the new article.

And so – after about a year of exercising on her own while losing weight, primarily by walking 10,000 steps a day – she hired a personal trainer in December. Before long, Bertinelli was running up to five times a week and shedding pounds.

The rest, as they say, is history.

1, 8 and 10 need to lose weight and to get a life. Then, they won't sound like bitter harpies.

Valerie is a beeyatch and always will be, I hate her big mouth. These pictures are definately photoshopped! What the heck happened to all her skin that surrounded the blubber??? I am not jealous as I am thin and pretty myself. She just had such potential, then went off and did drugs with eddie and then sold the story, she is just an x drug who re!

Simply put: va-va-voom, as they used to say. Don't care how she did it - she did it. Valerie looks even better now than she did in the one piece suit she wore way back in the teevee flick ' I Was A Mail Order Bride' w/Ted Wass (yes, I'm that old a fart/fan). Hell, she looks hotter than when she was our peer fantasy cutie Barbara Romano on One Day At a Time. It almost makes up for all those lost/wasted years when she was largely MIA while married to a certain alkified, overrated shredder (who's NEVER been as good as John McLaughlin, Larry Coryell, Roy Buchanan RIP, Allan Holdsworth OR Scott Henderson, just to name a few - bwah-hah.)

She looks fantastic! It sounds like there is alot of jealous envious people. This was obviously a very motivated and determined woman.
Most 20 year old woman don't even look half as good as her! Give Valerie credit. Just because you don't think its possible, because you are not willing to excercise, diet and run your butt off does not mean its not possible. Celebrities are always getting knocked! Yet they are the ones who are famous and the ones who knock them are obviously jealous. You have to learn to admire beautiful people, or you will carry alot of hatred all your life!

Val worked really hard and it shows! She'll be going over her exercise routine tomorrow on The Rachel Ray Show.

Yeah, jenny, if you put as much effort into your own self-improvemnet plan over the next 2 years as Valerie put in to hers for the last two years , you may be singing another tune. If you are overweight, how much money are you putting into your weekly groceries, fast -food stops, etc. etc. Start keeping a log of your expenses and write down every morsel of food you put into your mouth for the next week- Add the cost- Also how much time do you sit in front of the computor or sit in front of a TV instead of moving that butt out walking or excersisng. Even a working person can find time to excersise and it doesn't cost anything. Go Ahead- just do it- You'll be happy you did....This is your time for a positive change and a new outlook.

She looks great!!!!! I need to lose about 10-15 pounds. After watching her on Oprah today, I realized I could do it too. She's my motivation.

There sure are alot of whiners out there, it's that negative attitude that keeps you down,you're always looking some reason to hate.Go to church or meditate,but quite whining when somebody does something good for themselves,and these eating systems don't cost any more than a proper diet.oh please, big deal, whine,whine, whine,parents please keep the comments of your child to something more positive.

Avatar

big deal. the only people who can afford jenny craig or nutra system or any of those are celebrities. and she hired a personal trainer. why don't they have real people endorse their product. give me a few thousand dollars and time on my hands to exercise and hire a trainer and a cook and i would be skinny too.
