But the year is still young and you have plenty of time to jump back on the wagon. We have faith!

And if your goal is weight loss, maybe these 10 celebrities will inspire you. They each lost an impressive 100 pounds or more. Some jumpstarted the process through surgery, but the maintenance was all them! And some–like Shonda Rhimes and Rick Ross–melted away sans medical intervention. Goals for days.

    The Roseanne star has publicly struggled with weight for years but dropped 100 big ones in 2015 thanks to a “Mediterranean-style eating plan”–nuts, fish, olive oil, fruits and veggies–and taking 10,000 to 12,000 steps a day. “It takes a lot of creative energy to sit on your ass and figure out what you’re going to eat next,” he told People. “I wanted to live life better.”

    In 2015, the Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy creator shed 100 pounds to get healthy for her three children. Rhimes said the catalyst was not being able to buckle her seatbelt while sitting first class on an airplane.

    After appearing on Dancing with the Stars in 2011, Alley lost 100 pounds. However, after packing some pounds back on, she returned to Jenny Craig (after parting was with the brand in 2008) and lost 50 additional LBs. Slay queen!

  • 4 Graham Elliot
    In 2013, the Top Chef vet had bariatric surgery and lost 150 pounds. The trigger? Embarrassing his son. “I went to my son’s kindergarten class to do a little Q&A with the kids and one of the boys took a soccer ball, put it under his shirt, and said, ’I’m Mylo’s dad! Look how fat I am!’ I decided right then and there to make a change,” he told TV Guide.

    Jackson’s gastric bypass surgery helped him go from 350 to 220 pounds. He keeps it off by going on the treadmill for 35 to 45 minutes a day and never depriving himself of anything. “Never say ’I will never have another piece of chocolate’ because it won’t happen. And as soon as you say never, there is a binge coming,” Jackson said.

  • 6 Al Roker

    Roker went from 340 pounds to 190 pounds after having gastric bypass surgery in 2002. He put on 40 pounds after his mother was hospitalized in 2008 but now sits at 175 pounds. “Every day is a battle,” he told Daily News. “There’s no secret: It’s less food, more exercise.”

  • 7 Star Jones
    Jones also had the gastric bypass procedure done in 2003, which led to a 160-pound weight loss over three years time. At first, she denied having the surgery and swore by diet and exercise. She eventually came clean in an issue of Glamour magazine.

  • 8 Rick Ross

    Crossfit–well, Rossfit–and a portion-controlled diet helped Ross shed 100 pounds in 2014. “We had started doing it last year,” Ross told 93.9 WKYS FM. “The most I used to do for exercise was stand up to count the money, you know what I’m saying?”

  • 9 Big Boy

    The radio personality had bariatric surgery more than a decade ago and dropped 300 pounds as a result. He sticks to a diet of lean protein, fruits and veggies and only occasionally indulges in treats like fried chicken. His biggest advice for weight loss? You have to do it for yourself. “It starts with you first,” he said. “You can’t do it for anyone else.”

  • 10 E.J. Johnson

    In early 2015, the Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star underwent gastric sleeve surgery and has since dropped a mind-boggling 180 pounds. Johnson keeps the weight off through Pilates and avoiding extreme diet fads. “The surgery was definitely the best thing that ever happened to me,” Johnson said in an episode of RKOBH. “I never thought that I’d look this good, and that is the God’s honest truth.” Awww, good for him.

  • 11 Al Sharpton

    Sharpton started losing weight in 2006 and has dropped a total of 176 pounds–without surgery. He follows a strict diet of whole wheat toast, salads, pressed juice and the occasional fish. “I think the first week, maybe week and a half, I would get hungry every now and then. But the key to it is determination,” Shaprton told People magazine.
