"The results are in!" said Gayle King who celebrated losing 7 pounds on the eve of the U.S. presidential elections.

King told her Instagram followers she was worried about her quarantine weight gain. The 65-year-old "CBS This Morning" host shared a photo that showed her tipping the bathroom scale at 172 lbs.

"Ideal weight [doctor] says is 163... not happening anytime soon. Blaming corona quarantine and Halloween candy corns I just bought! Make it stop!"

A week and a half later, King showed her weight was down to 165 lbs. "Update! Just completed 5-day soup fast and the results are in!" she wrote on Instagram Tuesday.

"Trying to get into mustard yellow dress for Elex night coverage TONITE... praying to sweet black baby Jesus it now fits, that you VOTE and that there is PEACE."

King's fans encouraged her on her weight loss journey. But King had a message for trolls who had something to say about her feet:

"ps plz withhold all negative comments about my jacked up feet I'm well aware they are a hot mess but not yet comfortable in a covid environment going to nail salon... bigger issues to worry about."

Ciara is still struggling to lose the last 48 pounds she gained prior to delivering her third child.

The 34-year-old singer gave birth to son Win Wilson - her second child with husband Russell Wilson - on July, 23, but she is having a hard time losing the baby weight. And now she's getting help from diet experts.

The semi-retired singer joined stars like Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Hudson, and Jessica Simpson as a celebrity Weight Watchers ambassador.

Ciara's busy schedule and her three adorable children leave her with little time for exercising and achieving her weight goals.

Ciara admits she's up for the challenge of shedding those extra pounds with Weight Watchers: "It gives me something to look forward to and makes it fun," she explains. "I tried all kinds of things, sun up to sun down, and yes some of those things have worked, but they haven't been realistic for the long term at all."

She continued: "What I really love about this is I'm having fun while also learning how to develop really good eating habits. One of the ultimate goals is to have a good wellness lifestyle that's going to carry me through life."

The "Goodies" hitmaker says her ideal goal is to slip into a size 1 gown once again.

The former 'Sister, Sister' actress posted a mirror selfie that showed off her toned legs in denim short shorts. In the caption, she gave fellow moms some good advice, telling them to avoid the snap back trap.

"To all the women who are feeling pressured after birth. Do YOU! Do what makes YOU proud and do it in YOUR time. Not anyone else's," she wrote.

Go to https://www.hhs.gov/coronavirus/community-based-testing-sites/index.html to find covid tests near you)."

Stephen Curry's wife, Ayesha Curry trended on Twitter.com over the weekend when she unveiled her newly reconstructed face and body in pictures on Instagram.com.

The mother-of-3 was heavily criticized for posing in a bikini in photos taken by her NBA superstar husband.

Fans accused Ayesha, 31, of trying to achieve the surgically altered Kardashian look.

After the backlash to her bikini photos, Ayesha took to Instagram to defend her new look in a video.

She told her followers she's "down 35 pounds" and "very happy to be me."

She added:

"I spent my entire 20s having babies, nursing Babies. Now it's my turn to nurse myself. I'm Jamaican, I'm strong, I'm fast and I'm resilient... Negativity only makes a mom go harder. Word to the wise."

Unrecognizable pop singer Adele thanked essential healthcare workers while celebrating her 32nd birthday with a new photo on Instagram.com.

In her first Instagram post since she lost 100 pounds last year, the Grammy-winning star shared a photo of her new look while thanking front line workers and healthcare personnel for their dedication to others during the much-politicized pandemic.

"Thank you for the birthday love. I hope you're all staying safe and sane during this crazy time. I’d like to thank all of our first responders and essential workers who are keeping us safe while risking their lives! You are truly our angels...
2020 okay bye thanks x."

The singer transformed herself while taking a hiatus from recording. Adele was said to be depressed following her failed marriage to ex-husband Simon Konecki.

Adele and Konecki share custody of 7-year-old son Angelo.

A source told PEOPLE Adele followed a strict diet and workout routine that included cross-training and full-body Pilates.

"She got to the point where she didn't feel great," said the source. "She knew she had to change something because she wants to be the healthiest mom possible."

Nicki Minaj is winning her own weight loss challenge, by revealing she is 20 pounds away from her ideal goal.

In a revealing moment on her Queen Radio talk show, the 37-year-old "Anaconda" rapper admits she's been delaying her diet because she lacked discipline. She said she didn't think she had what it took to stick with the strict diet plan, WENN.com reported.

"I was trying to do this diet and I kept putting it off. I didn't think I could have the discipline in what I ate. Once my mind was committed to it, my body committed to it. I'm still 20 pounds away from my goal weight."

The "Yikes" rapper said, "I channeled all of my power and now I have control of it. I control how it manifests in my life." She encouraged her readers to do the same, but she cautioned her followers that no one is perfect.

"I've been talking about that this year too, about being kind to yourself, and allowing yourself to be human. While at the same time, being motivated and powerful, but also treating yourself as if you love yourself too, and being easy on yourself. Like, nothing and no one is perfect."

Nicki stuck to her diet with the help of her husband, Kenneth Petty, who is pictured here making a weed run on New Year's Eve.

Nicki says dieting success gave her a new lease on life. "This has been one of my favorite years so far. I realized I unlocked the lock. I realized that success starts inside you, it doesn't start with success.

"Success doesn't start with success, meaning I don't have to be the number one female rapper. I have to know I can be the number one female rapper."

Teyana Taylor opened up about her battle with body image insecurities. The 28-year-old Harlem native revealed she struggles with what many consider her ideal body.

The R&B singer and dancer said, "People may say I have a perfect body, but I have certain insecurities too. You know what's crazy? A lot of people think, 'Yeah your body is cool,' but, like, there's been plenty of roles where it's like, 'Oh yeah, you have to gain weight' and it's very hard for me to gain weight, you know what I'm saying?"

Teyana, who follows a strict diet of celery juice and water, says "It’s not easy, or I lose weight for any little thing and I'm already small, I can't afford to lose any more weight, but that's just my personal thing."

Teyana credits her good genes and her at-home workout, Fade2Fit, for her brawny bod.

"Nobody's perfect. Everyone has their own little insecurities, so I wanted to create a body program that you can do in the comfort of your own home and not worry about who's watching or looking."

She added: "If I walk into a gym, people think I'm gonna do backflips, lift 100-pound weights. Like, that's still a pre-judgement of, 'Oh she's got a 20-pack, so I know she's about do some work. And I'm really just shy, so you never know. Never judge a book by its cover."

Teyana is mom to 2-year-old Iman Tayla Shumpert by her husband of 3 years, NBA player Iman Shumpert, 29.

She vigorously denied undergoing an abdominal etching procedure.
