Miss South Carolina Bree Boyce may be a beauty queen, but for most of her life, she says she was "miserable in my own skin" as a heavyset kid in Florence, S.C.

"I used to make fun of my weight with others to fit in and be the funny, overweight girl," Boyce tells People Magazine for its annual Half Their Size cover story.

"I'd go home and cry, not because of what others said about me, but what I had said about myself," she adds. How times have changed for the 22-year-old:

By 17, she had reached her heaviest weight: 234 lbs.! Aching knees and difficulty breathing drove her to meet with a doctor, who told her she needed to lose weight.

"It was embarrassing because a 17-year-old shouldn't be in a doctor's office having this conversation," recalls Boyce. "I knew there were so many things I wanted to do in life - I wanted to be on Broadway, go to school, get married, have a family."

Another key motivator: "I wanted to be Miss America one day."

You gotta hand it to Snooki.

Since she first burst on the scene and out of her pants in late 2009, the girl has gotten progressively thinner, an impressive feat considering she's a full-blown drunk.

Fortunately, inhaiing Deena's face means fairly low caloric intake. That's gotta count for something. And working out helps too of course. She does her GTL.

Take a look at Snooki pictures from last month, late 2010 and early 2010:

Finally, to truly illustrate how far she's come, take a look back to 2009, before she was famous, during the filming of Season One of Jersey Shore. Words fail us:

The pregnant Jessica Simpson has just signed a deal worth $3 million to be a spokeswoman for Weight Watchers, according to a report from the New York Post.

Her weight has been scrutinized in recent years (see fat Jessica Simpson pictures), but now that she's eating for two, she's turning a negative into a positive.

She reportedly fielded several offers from a number of celebrities weight loss companies before settling with the Double-Dubs for a staggering sum of money.

Large Jessica Simpson

A source told the Post, confirming earlier reports, "The deal is in place, and after having her baby, she'll start with Weight Watchers to lose her baby weight."

Rumors about the contract began last month, with reports saying that the company wanted to help her get back to her famous Dukes of Hazzard physique.

The brand wants her to use their famous points system to emulate another celebrity spokeswoman, Jennifer Hudson, to "lose a significant amount of weight."

Simpson plans to wed her fiance Eric Johnson after having the baby, which could be another motivation for the former singer and actress to drop weight.

She is expecting a boy or a girl BTW. Crazy.

Angelina Jolie is shedding pounds like a madman, according to a new tabloid report, and unlike many anorexic, waifish celebs, it has zero to do with vanity.

It's all about making a political statement, says a source.

The 36-year-old U.N. goodwill ambassador, who travels the globe meeting the poor, "puts herself on fasts to make statements for the children she visits."

"She says, 'If they can't eat, I can't eat,'" the source adds. "She does different cleanses from around the world. It's very dramatic, but that's how she is."

Angelina Jolie: Wasting away to nothing?

The actress, currently promoting her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, has Brad Pitt worried about her health, according to other insiders.

"He's worried about her and has made her see a zillion doctors," the alleged experts say, but despite the concerns of some, "they just tell her she's fine."

So ... is she really starving herself in that case?

Probably not. But she can't hide the fact that she's looking thinner these days ... and she certainly can't hide the crazy, according to made-up nannies.

Kevin Federline's ponderous girth appears to have caught up with him.

In his defense, the only reason he wilted in the Western Australia heat this week is that he's doing something about it - the former spouse of Britney Spears is filming Excess Baggage, the Aussie version of Celebrity Fit Club.

In any case, dude passed out down under. He's not small.

Kevin Federline Shirtless

This man was once married to Britney Spears. Amazing.

A show rep says the season's first shoot was in late November in the Kimberley region in Outback Western Australia, which is "widely regarded as one of the most remote and altogether hostile parts of the country," and things got heated.

Literally.

During the shoot, under advice from the show's medic, Kevin Federline, who just became a dad for the fifth time, was "taken to hospital with signs of heat stress."

However, K-Fed resumed filming in the same location shortly after and is currently continuing with the show, which will air on the Nine Network next year.

When Kelly Preston welcomed son Ben, she knew bouncing back would be a struggle. "When I got pregnant at 48, I didn't know if my body would bounce back," she admits.

Turns out she had no need to worry.

Not only did she shed all the baby weight, but over the past year she's dipped below her pre-pregnancy weight, and is relishing a new figure, 39 pounds lighter! Check it out:

"I lost 39 lbs., have more energy than I had 20 years ago - and I feel amazing," she says. "I'm going to be turning 50 next year - holy $h!t! Hey, 50 is the new 30."

Besides tennis and keeping up with a baby, what's her secret? Channeling Kirstie Alley's weight loss plan - The Organic Liaison weight loss program she created!

"I was so excited when my best friend created Rescue Me," says Kelly of the diet plan's organic supplement system that targets cravings and "boosts natural energy."

"It's pretty much the most genius thing ever," says Preston, who recently signed on as the new spokesperson of Alley's plan, on which Kirstie lost 100 lbs. 100!

Since news broke that Eric Johnson got Jessica Simpson pregnant long before she went and confirmed it, she lost out on the whole tabloid exclusive deal.

But, since the pressure's on celebs to shed the baby weight they inevitably gain as soon as possible, she may have a backup plan up her sleeve to cash in.

If Us Weekly is to be believed, then Jessica is already planning for just that, and is in talks with Weight Watchers to be their newest celebr pound-shedder.

Once baby makes three, Jess will make four. Million. All she has to do is lose "a significant amount of weight" on the points-based plan, and shill for it.

While it would be a bit surprising, even in this day and age, for a star known for promoting body acceptance to be in negotiations to make her pregnant body the new face of weight loss, her camp is already shooting down the rumor.

So false! And order is once again restored to the universe.

"There is no Weight Watchers deal," a source told E! News, claiming that Simpson planned to sign on with the company to lose the weight she'd gained over the past few years, "But then she got pregnant" and there is currently no plan to do so.

Funny, the same has been said of her wedding to Eric.

Snooki of Jersey Shore fame has lost some weight.

She's also been practicing a new, profoundly lame pose for the cameras during her recent book tour. Speaking of profoundly lame, if you actually pay money in exchange for a book authored by Snooki, you may fall under that category.

Girl is looking a little thinner these days, though. Maybe she's consuming fewer than 90 drinks per week given that she's not currently filming Jersey Shore ...

  • Thin Snooki

You gotta hand it to the 4'9" guidette. If you discount the promiscuity, personality, absurd "fashion" choices and high probability of health problems, she might almost pass for attractive these days. Or would she? You tell us:

Sure, she looks thinner, but would you smush it?

Mariah Carey officially has her groove - and boy - back.

Six months after welcoming twins Moroccan and Monroe, the singer has lost 30 pounds, which she shows off in a big way on the new cover of Us Weekly.

"I just gained an enormous amount of weight," Carey says of the twin boy and girl she welcomed April 30 - her wedding anniversary with spouse Nick Cannon.

Looking at the short shorts and toned belly, that's a distant memory now ...

How did Mariah Carey pull off this weight loss plan?

In July, Carey buckled down with a nutritionist and a workout plan from Jenny (formerly Jenny Craig), keeping to 1,500 calories a day and thrice-weekly workouts.

"I feel incredible," she says, just three months after her body transformation began. "It was just the biggest blessing to be able to have the babies," Carey adds.

"But I felt trapped in my body because I couldn't move." But now, she says, "I'm proud of how hard I worked to get my body back... I had to do this for me."

We'd say she did a heck of a job. You go girl!

Jenny Craig gets plenty of credit for Carrie Fisher's weight loss - over 50 pounds in the past year - but without the psychiatric hospital Silver Hill in New Canaan, Conn., the actress says she never would have gotten her life back together.

"They really did heal me. It's the alma mater that matters," she said.

At Thursday's Silver Hill Hospital gala in N.Y.C., she extolled the virtues of the 80-year-old facility, where she was treated for alcohol addiction and bipolar disorder.

Fisher said that during her stay "there was a president at Silver Hill, I'm not kidding. He had really bad breath. I told people not to get down wind of the president."

She did not name said president, but did share some reflections on topping out at 180 pounds a year ago, and how much different she feels since that high mark.
