Jenny McCarthy: “I’m a big yo-yoer. I go from like 120 to 138 lbs”

FFN_f_51275444 - Jenny McCarthy: "I’m a big yo-yoer. I go from like 120 to 138 lbs"

From Radar:

I’m a big yo-yoer. I do go up and down. I go from like 120 to 138. Right now I’m at 136, I think,” the 5’7? actress, model and comedienne told Radar.

“And I take this time to thoroughly enjoy it during the holidays. I’m kind of part of the collective thinking when it comes to just surrendering to the not so great foods.”

But McCarthy, 41, admits she hides her weight well.

“Sometimes it has to do with PSM. I drink a lot of water! When you have a lot of water it kind of tends to go everywhere,” she said. “Like a little bit in your neck and a lot in your boobs and your arms…to me it’s more evenly spread out I think.”

    the comment about the water is so stupid

  • boobylicious

    she’s adorable

  • I’m assuming she means ‘PMS’ not PSM and that she’s talking about water *retention* going all over her body rather than just to one area. It goes to my boobs more than anything, which is a pain (literally!). But drinking plenty of water should reduce water retention, right? Don’t get that part of the quote – if she thinks drinking lots of water causes the ‘water weight’, she’s a bit ignorant….

    Anyway, she looks good and at a healthy, slim weight – facially I can see the resemblance with her cousin Melissa McCarthy – body-wise they’re poles apart, of course. They both have cute smiles and bright eyes though.

    • solaxia

      wow! I can see the resemblance too now. I never knew that were related! I think the only difference in their faces is the weight difference almost. Like, if they were closer in weight their faces would be really similar.

      My water retention goes everywhere. Ugh! Yuk. Even copious amounts of water doesn’t help (but you’re right, it should). I think mine mainly goes on my belly, thighs and boobs too. Yes, I know what those painful boobs are like! I swear sometimes they go up 2 sizes. I can just feel them pounding on my chest constantly.

      • Yep, nothing helps my water retention either. I never buy bras at that time of the month now because once they go down, the cups are too big! 2 sizes is pretty extreme though – poor you!

    • MerryHappy

      Yeahhh… Jenny McCarthy is the last person I’d get any of my health advice from. I’ve always thought that they looked really similar as cousins, too.

  • erika

    i would NEVER think she was 136-138 as a high weight

  • Puffin

    She’s not that smart, is she? Anyway, I don’t think there is anything special about her. I actually even think her face is a bit too bimbo-ish.

  • Sandy

    She’s kind of a goof, but I love her honesty. She’s never been embarrassed to talk about her weight and I don’t think she is exaggerating the numbers at all unlike some other celebrities.

    Obviously 120 lbs isn’t sustainable for her body without constant restrictions. I’m the same way- I can get down to a lower weight if I completely cut out gluten, but my body is determined to be ten pounds heavier. Sometimes you have to listen to your body.

  • MerryHappy

    Slow clap for Dr. Jenny McCarthy and her health advice.

  • Debbs

    She fluctuates between almost 20 pounds? Maybe she was 120 fifteen years ago…

    • MerryHappy

      It’s probably more like 126-136. I would think ten pounds is pretty normal to fluctuates. I would only consider it yoyoing if it’s dangerous or a more extreme amount like 25lbs. Someone can fluctuate ten pounds because of their period alone.

  • kia

    can I know why my comment is deleted?

    • HB

      Your comment is there?

  • Juju

    Don’t know her. Is she related to the other Mc Carthy (Melissa?) actress?

    • MissMarilyn

      she was a playboy model! And I think they’re cousins

  • jello

    So 120 to 138 is considered a big yo-yo weight. I could gain and lose that in a weekend. Try yo-yoing between 160 and 255. Now that’s a yo-yo weight.

  • CakesOnAPlane

    the study that connected vaccines to autism has been debunked a number of times and it’s disproof published in Nature, the leading academic journal on medicine and science.

  • retrobanana

    how tall is she? I would never think she was 138..but she does appear “bigger”/ bloated at times..but I always saw her about 125..i also assumed she had surgery when needed

    • MerryHappy

      She’s 5 7 which seems right for her claim as all those are within ‘normal’ weight.

    • Allayna

      … you do realize that 138 pounds for someone who is 5’7 can steal mean they’re lean, right?
      I’m 5’3 and at 120 pounds I’m either a size 0 or 2, shirt/dress size S or XS.

      It depends on how the person carries weight but I’m just so sick of hearing people say, “Oh wow, she’s a 135 pounds!?” like they’re surprised someone in shape could weigh SO much. It’s 135 pounds people, that’s not very heavy!

  • HB

    CakesOnAPlane said it for me. Do your research.
    Don’t advocate avoiding something that, at one time, was very tenuously linked as a POSSIBLE cause of autism, then debunked, especially if it’s simultaneously going to make the chances of every baby without vaccines in contact with others without vaccines very sick.
    It’s idiotic. Sorry.

  • shaye224

    Vaccines are a huge contributor to this issues our kids have, including autism. If only she knew a bit more about water and mineral levels balancing out the “bloat”, as well as natural ways to stabilize your hormones to not have PMS, then we’d have a real winner here!

    • Faith

      I don’t know if you’re being sarcastic or not but the MMR jabs children have do not cause autism. The study that linked autism to vaccines was competely debunked with the Dr Wakefield having charges of serious misconduct put against him. Its more dangerous not to immunise your child against such diseases like Measles, Mumps and Rubella all of which can be fatal in infants and pregnant women. They study itself was flawed and followed much scaremongering in the press. The fact is, is that Dr Wakefield used flawed research with a two small sample size to count. Its fairly safe to say childhood vaccines such as the MMR do not cause autism it is just back science.

    I think she is such a doll. So likeable.
