According to her, dieting equals to holding her breath. “Eventually you are going to be gasping for air,” as she told Everyday Health. She asserts that in dieting, “Eventually you are going to break and then overindulge.” This compelled her to give a try to Weight Watchers for seven days. She was aware of the fact that it was easy to follow and one gets used to it. In any case, she would not have to say NO to her favorite food. After a couple of years, she lost 80 pounds and became official spokesperson for the Weight Watchers. “It taught me how to eat, how to measure my portions, and know what I was putting in my body.” She was all vocal about the weight loss program as she always kept herself accountable throughout the entire program, even though she always had realistic expectations. For instance, immediately after giving birth, one might feel discomfort and lack of enthusiasm and energy. It is very unlikely that one will get up and work out, right? But good news is that you can start with paying heed to what are you eating. “Take baby steps, and let it work for you,” she added. “Think ‘I can’t run, but I can walk.’”
