Renee Zellweger - The Change
I'm sure most of you reading this would have already seen the BIG difference in the appearance of Renee Zellweger. I have unfortunately read so much abuse from the public - saying shes been under the knife, saying that being healthy can't make you look different, even comments saying she should have 'stayed fat' as that's what she was famous for! What on earth..... Here's my view....
Changing your lifestyle for the better can have many, many positive affects on your life. Yes, it is possible to actually look noticeably different by living a healthier, fitter lifestyle. Let's take The Biggest Loser for example. I have watched many series of that show, and when the contestants lose a ton of weight, they have sometimes looked completely different, and that's because they have lost the fat that was on their face and necks. By doing that, you are almost 'deflating' your looks, which shows your jaw and cheekbones much more - which in turn shows you the 'real you'. By having that layer of fat, you are actually masking the real you, and it makes you look different. With Renee, you can clearly see her jaw and cheekbones far more than when she was overweight. Her weight has fluctuated over the years, but she has always been someone who has been overweight, whereas now she is much healthier and fitter, and it shows.
I really don't understand people who slate celebrities for losing weight. It happened with Dawn French (who I also wrote a blog post on). She lost a lot of weight, and people criticised her - saying she won't be funny, because being overweight made her funny. What a load of garbage. Someone who is a well known actress, loses a lot of weight, that should be inspiring! that should be motivating! It shouldn't be criticised.
Renee has done a great thing, she has made the choice to become healthier, be fitter, and in turn that has made her look better. The main problem with what is being said, is that people are comparing her looks from the first Bridget Jones film to her recent change this year. Well that is a gap of 13 years! anyone will look different 13 years later. I think she looks great to be honest, and I'm pleased for her that she has made this choice. She is very well known for being the 'chubby girl' from Bridget Jones, and I'm sure she was never happy being that way. I think people should take inspiration from seeing changes like hers.
