From talk show host to famous mom, we're not sure it gets any more down-to-earth than Sharon Osbourne. Weight loss transformations are never easy, but when you live your life in the public eye, struggling with your size can be that much more difficult and embarrassing. Yet Sharon has always managed to keep things real and candid--and still very inspiring! She's a beautiful woman at any size, but photos of Sharon Osbourne young reveal just how much she's changed over the years.
The talk show host and famous mom has been open about her experiences, which helps her fans relate to her. She admitted to having not gastric bypass surgery in the past, but lap band surgery, a procedure she underwent in 1999. Though she did shed a whopping 125 pounds, she later shared that she wasn't happy with the results of the lap band or how it made her feel. She had it removed in 2006.
Today, Sharon Osbourne's weight and slimmed down physique are maintained through a combination of the Atkins diet and healthy lifestyle choices. We're sure her children and husband (she and Ozzy have one of the longest-lasting celebrity marriages) are fully supportive, and so are we! As these recent photos show, Sharon Osbourne has never looked better.
