Marissa Jaret Winokur is known for her full figure, especially in Hairspray — but she has slimmed down… a lot!
"I work out every day and I eat 1,200 calories. Here's the truth—like I've said to everybody, every diet works if you follow the diet."
So TRUE! You just wanna pick a healthy diet — and it sounds like she has!
In just seven months, she lost 60 pounds! She continues:
"An hour and a half every day. I used to do twice a day! Now I'm at the maintaining [stage].
"It's hard. It's really, really hard. But I've decided that I can't go back because I will go back immediately. I said to my trainer the other day, 'I ate a French fry.' I felt like it was a gateway food, and he's like, 'No, French fries are past the gateway. That's not a gateway food. You're already in it. Gateway would be like a chocolate-covered espresso bean. French fries, you've gone over.""
LOLz! So true — though, in moderation, you can treat yourself once in a blue moon!
The only downside to this weightloss is the fact that she now has to wear a padded bra, because her boobs disappeared! She said this about her boobies and her husband's thoughts:
"I'm wearing a padded bra because I've lost my boobs completely. I went from a 38DD to a 34C! He doesn't care. It's like, 'Whatever, I'm working.' I wear padding. It all looks the same."
Does anyone else feel like being BFFs with Marissa??
This is the kind of positive and dedicated attitude you need in friends! We are SO proud of her weight loss journey, and wish her nothing but luck in maintaining!!
