Ginnifer Goodwin, who recently revealed that she’s been using Weight Watchers to control her weight since the age of 9, opened up more about her past weight problems:
“I began to identify myself as fat. At 9 years old I weighed about 10 lbs. less than what my weight is at 32. I needed to get help.”
“I ended up going to my mother crying. With the counseling of my family doctor, my mother ended up turning to Weight Watchers and their children’s program. I went to weekly meetings, got counseling and would exercise with my peers who were my size. It was the first time I saw a proper children’s portion size, and it wasn’t two burgers, it was one.”
“Her reaction was not, ‘Oh, I’ll help you get skinny. My mother’s reaction was, ‘Why don’t we all go and learn a little more about our health.”
