Lord – I’ve heard of people being on diets for years, but 23? Big Love actress Ginnifer Goodwin recently revealed to Health magazine that she’s been on the Weight Watchers program for just that long, meaning she began the program at the age of 9. She was spotted above last month at the MOCA Gala cocktail reception in Los Angeles.
“It’s the only thing on the planet that doesn’t dehydrate you or just make you miserable. I’ve never had a dramatic weight problem, it’s just that I tend to indulge, and then I need to get back on track so I can button my pants,” the actress added.
“I actually have a number, and I know that some people say that’s not the healthiest gauge,” she said. What do you think? I’m just unsure of what it says about her parents when a 9-year-old child is overly concerned about her weight and joins a diet program…
Later in the interview, Goodwin is asked when she feels the most body-confident. “Even when I’m too heavy, I’m still confident because I never actually let myself go. I can be indulgent for six months and put on some weight, but I still never actually get to the point of being unhappy and self-destructive.”
